Diana Hamilton thinks back on how her singing gift was discovered; ‘It was my 13th birthday’

Diana Hamilton has noted she has sung since her childhood.

“Along the line, I had the opportunity to sing with Francis Adjei for so many years,” she said.

“Finally, in God’s time and according to his planning, 2007, we came out with the first album Osoro Bekasa (Heaven Will Speak).

“Two years later, we followed up with Ensiwo Yie (May It Be Well with You). Three years later, we released Eye Woa (It’s You), and with God’s help we added the Yehowa album which houses Yehowa Behwe (God Will Take Care of You) and Work in Progress,” she enumerated.

“After this, [singles] like Mo Ne Yo (Well-done) came, W’asem (Your Word), Adom (Grace), Ewurade Ye (Do It, Lord), My Meditations and now Say Amen,” the multiple award-winning singer-songwriter added.

Ms Hamilton spoke on the No.1 FM Showbiz on No.1 105.3 FM.

Host Taller Dee asked which musicians inspired her.

“I used to admire Suzy and Matt a lot,” she answered, noting that these were her seniors even though she had been an active singer for a long time.

“I used to admire Jane and Bernice, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, there’s another one I really love and admire – Cece Winans – she’s American,” she said. “So there are people we looked up to.”

Ms Hamilton revealed she was 13-years-old when she first sang in church. It was at the Sunday School.

“I remember it vividly. It was my 13th birthday at Dr [Thomas] Wyatt [Assembly of the Church of Pentecost], behind Mallam Atta,” she recalled.

Taller Dee wondered how she felt singing that day.

“It was good,” the Adom hitmaker answered. “My teacher had taught me a song and since it was my birthday I said I’d sing and I did. I remember very well.”

After the day, her teachers having noticed her singing gift, made her sing during Children’s Day celebrations in front of the adult audience.

Diana Hamilton was the ultimate winner at the 2021 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) lifting the Artiste of the Year trophy. She is a trained and practising nurse in the United Kingdom (UK).
