Anna is in the final stages of recording an album of hymns with Psalter Music, a new music ministry for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the South Pacific. Psalter Music operates under the umbrella of the Adventist Media Network based in Wahroonga, Sydney.
“It was exciting to be chosen for Q Song, especially to be nominated in the Gospel category and to be a representative for Christians and for God,” says Anna Weatherup.
“For Anna, music is about connection and she tells her journey through the ethereal grace of her voice,” says Tim Burcham, manager of Psalter Music.

Anna says working with Psalter Music has been an answer to prayer. “I now see a way to using my gift in playing music for God. I’m very excited about the future,” says Ms Weatherup.
“Anna’s voice had a huge impact on the Psalter Music team,” says Tim Burcham. “Her new song Miracle is truly world class. We’re very blessed that Anna has been so willing to use her gift for God, and work with us.”
Anna’s song Miracle will also be used in the production of ‘Beyond’ a new series being filmed for Christian television.
Anna is finishing a new hymns album titled Nearer, that breathes new life into the timeless beauty of hymns.
