From UK to USA…

About Henta

Henta is an English contemporary praise music singer/songwriter, piano teacher and music director at Anamchara Ministries & Monastery who recently became a US Citizen.  Her new album “Rocks in My Shoes” bringing Heaven to Earth in the middle path, featuring Austin & the Avenue and special guests was released on 14th November 2022!  This is a diverse and nuanced album and offers elements of contemporary worship, folk, gospel, blues and even some brushes with Americana and pop..

The message of this album is about our daily walk, which can often feel uncomfortable to the point of being overwhelming, due to every day challenges. The rocks cause us to be squeezed to test our character, yet as we persevere and endure, the rocks start to get smoother as they are being refined piece by piece into shiny diamonds that become blessings not only to us but to others as well.  

Her previous releases were “Our Town” single featuring Austin & the Avenue, “Rocks in My Shoes” single and “Exodus” the album in 2022 and “Beautiful Creation” album in 2014 which marked the beginning of her journey into Christian worship music and ministry.

Since 2014 she has also written about 20 new praise songs available on CD directly from her website.
