Franklyn Gyimah, an exceptional musical talent

Franklyn Gyimah,

Music is the purest form of art, and as quoted from Frederich Nietzsche a German philosopher “without music, life would be a mistake”. Innovare had the privilege of experiencing the raw talent of an amazing young lady with a breathtaking voice at an event.

This exceptional person is Franklyn Gyimah. The whole Innovare team agreed that this is certainly a voice that is going to be known globally in the near future and are in total support of being instrumental in accelerating that eventuality.

This relationship is in alignment with Innovare’s values and principles of perfection and professionalism, and we deem it an honor to be a catalyst in bringing this singer to the greater attention of the world. It is also in line with our mentorship approach, and we believe this will serve as a source of motivation to other young talents who will intend to be in the light as she will be.

The maiden result of this collaboration is a rendition of well-known African-American Spiritual ‘He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands’.

The inspiration behind her version of this popular song was driven from the unanticipated change in our daily lives due to the emergence of the Coronavirus pandemic and how it put the world into total chaos. This song was thrown as a Prayer Challenge by Tyler Perry to be an invocation for the whole world in these times of strife.

The song has been released on all social media platforms since June 1, 2021
