UK worship leader Philippa Hanna has not only released her new Integrity Music album 'Stained Glass Stories,' she and her husband Joel Cana are expecting their first child, a baby girl due January 2021.
"It hasn't been easy expecting our first baby in lockdown. The ban on gatherings meant a lot of uncertainty for us, work-wise to begin with. Then Joel wasn't able to attend the first 2 scans which was really hard and we couldn't hug our family when we told them the news!" Philippa shared.
"But this little girl is a total gift from God, a little life springing forth from the ashes of a tough couple of years. We are already seeing God's favour in her life, in spite of adversity. Against the odds! Cant wait to share more with you as the weeks go by. Please pray for her to be healthy and full of joy - my main prayer for her. Big love to my incredible husband Joel who I know was born to be a daddy. You're the best Joel!"
Having toured with the likes of Lionel Richie, Leona Lewis, Wet Wet Wet, Little Mix and many more, Philippa also has an established presence in the Christian music world, racking up collaborations with Kevin Max of D.C Talk fame, Graham Kendrick, and Christian hit writer Chris Eaton.
