Produced in the UK by Sofiri Stewart, ‘You Are Great’ is the perfect song for uplifting spirits and rebuilding faith in a time of pain and confusion during COVID-19. Through Gifty’s compelling, soul-stirring vocals, her new single creates an atmosphere of worship that touches your heart.
Inspired by a challenging period in the singer-songwriter’s life, when Gifty was on the verge of losing her home to financial difficulties and experiencing medical difficulties that threatened to miscarriage her pregnancy, the single’s poignant lyrics describe the strength and compassion that God brought to her in her time of need.
“There was a time when I couldn’t pay for my mortgage and I was about to lose my home. When I thought I was going to miscarriage my baby, I heard God speak to me. The medical staff intervened to get him out. I was in debt and I couldn’t pay my bills or and even my tuition fees for university. Today I am debt free. And so, as I stood to look back at where I am now, I heard the chorus of the song and it blossomed from there.” – GIFTY OVIRE
