For someone who didn't hesitate to display her talent as a primary school girl and later as a teenage singer at St Anne’s School in Ibadan, Nigeria, the future couldn't be brighter and nothing would prove a stumbling block in her desire to perform at the highest level.
As she once said; “I think I play two roles: worship and inspirational music, but when I write, I go into the role of worshipper. Worship is the context, its not a style. Worship can be rock and roll, I think it’s not confined to a genre. To me, worship is about what you're saying, it’s not a particular style, it could be juju or fuji or raggae."
According to the mother of two, "My first solo Album was released in 1998 and the second in Aug. 2001 with 10 tracks and 5 tracks respectively." Following that was the highly acclaimed single, Anyday, which was released in 2006. In August 2012, she released her current album, My God and I.
In 2012, Helen Yawson took it to another level by having her first Live Concert in Accra, Ghana. This has now become an annual event.
