Biography

Greetings everyone. My name is Hansen Chew and I am from Singapore. I am a songwriter who takes music as a form of language to communicate beauty in this world. I write music because I want to make a beautiful place with this songwriting gift. When I was 18 years old, I discovered a small beautiful poem which inspired me to write music about beauty in this world. This poem is simple, yet simplicity has its own beauty. It teaches me about love and beauty in this world. It speaks to me like a good friend or brother, giving me encouragement. Someone wise once said "There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved." I find the meaning very true. Many years have passed by as I follow this dream. Now, I want to bring forth comfort, hope and encouragement to everyone who listens to my music. I want to put a smile on your face and spread the message of love. Above all, I hope my music will heal your heart and life with love so that you will see the beauty of things around you. With this thought, I wish to share and dedicate this poem to each of you with my music creation. May it inspire you too to live a meaningful and beautiful life with Love and Grace.

Life has its many ups and downs. Everyone needs encouragement in life. This is very true from the inside out. So this is my own legacy of encouragement to you, my friend and people in this world. Last but not least, I want to thank my Creator and all my loved ones and friends for their past support in my life, be it small or big in this journey. There are many of them and I want to count them as stars. You know who you are by your love. Thank you.

"I want to make a beautiful place
Where those I love can love one another,
Can stretch their hearts across the earth.
Can understand what spring is worth,
Can count the stars,
Watch violets grow,
And learn what birds and children know."

I dedicate "I Want to Make a Beautiful Place" to all you beautiful people. Let love embraces you today and lights up your world. Love is truly a many splendoured thing.

Smile an everlasting smile because there is Love. Where there is Love, there is Grace. And may this little light help us see Grace too. May our dreams come true.

"A little light will give you a little smile.
A little warmth will touch you for a while.
A little touch of love,
A little sacrifice,
A little spark of light,
Will brighten your life."

Lyrics

Teach Me How To Live A Life

Written By: Hansen Chew Chai Min

Oh Lord, I want to thank You
For all that You have done.
You have brought me to You
With Your Love shared by Your Son.

Oh Lord, I want to thank You
For all that You have done.
You have brought me to You
With Your Love shared by Your Son.

Chorus:

Teach me how to live a life
That is holy to You.
Teach me how to live a life
That is shining for You.
Teach me how to live a life
That is faithful to You.
Teach me how to live a life
That others could see…..
That Jesus lives in me. (3x)

Oh Lord, I want to thank You
For all that You have done.
You have brought me to You
With Your Love shared by Your Son.
With Your Love shared by Your Son.

"Imagine a world with only love, where people appreciate each other, show goodwill and friendship to one another, regardless of race or religion. Fill the world with colours of love. Paint it with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, friendship, courage, compassion, grace, hope, glory and more... Pay it forward by saying "I love you" and "I appreciate you". Make this world a beautiful place. "

This is my intention of sharing my music with you (I want to make a beautiful place to encourage you too). You too can make this world a better place in your own special ways. Be blessed. Thank you.

This music is lovingly dedicated to the following beautiful people. Thank you for all your support and love.

3. Pastor Joseph Prince for sharing God's Word with me for the past 12 years in New Creation Church so that I can take courage in the Lord to embark on my dream and this ministry. And Pastor Henry Yeo for his prayer of faith on me to let this Will of God come to pass in my life. Without your ministry, I do not think my dream can unfold this far based on my own journey and personal relationship with my Lord. You have made it possible for me through sharing of Jesus Christ, our most beautiful Saviour. With Him, I can see beauty shining in this world a
