“for the LOVE of Music” with Sara Troy and her guest Swapna Abraham, on air from August 31st
To share my story of realizing my calling after having reached what I imagined was a dead end. There are people out there that are probably at that dead end and cannot see the light of day. If mine could help them see and navigate, I’d have achieved far more than I did through my 1000-day challenge that set four world records in singing-songwriting and everything until then.
Swapna Abraham is a singer-songwriter from Kerala, India, who recorded hundreds of songs in a career spanning twenty-five years until she embarked on a world record challenge in 2017 composing, producing and publishing 2321 songs setting four world records based in Dubai. This challenge was self-imposed just after her decision to give up music for good. Primarily a gospel artiste, her style of music stretches across the entire gamut from pop and country to folk and soul. She has to her credit twenty-one albums (nineteen gospel and two secular) in English.
