Password International, PWI001
Producer: Danny Antill

Beyond the evangelizing message are sophisticated productions by keyboard wiz Danny Antill (Sunset, Billy Paulson, Mara Louw - and still going strong as a solo artist) and powerful vocals from Ms Pass, who writes: 'I am a white African, born and raised in Zimbabwe, educated in the USA. I once had no hope, now God has given me hope. These songs express my heart-cry for Africa ... Only when we see Africa as God sees her will we know truth and peace." Showing off a variety of influences from jazz to pop. Best tracks 'God Bless Africa', 'I Believe in Africa', 'Alleluiah Amen' and 'Africa Is The Place' feature the 44-strong Sebokeng AFM Mass Choir.
