Anil Kant has achieved International acclaim as a singer, song writer, and worship leader in recent years having led worship in many countries all over the world, and recorded 7 albums in the last 5years of ministry. He is also the Executive Director of Trinity Sounds Pvt. Ltd having produced and directed many projects for his Recording Company.
Anil Kant comes from a Hindu-Punjabi family. His parents, being very devout and religious, taught Anil Hindu scriptures from a young age. Music was an integral part of Anil's life. In spite of the regular spiritual guidance from his parents; Anil still knew that something was amiss and from a young age had a quest for a close relationship with God.
Anil started writing, composing and singing at the early age of twelve. He took it as a profession at the age of eighteen, while in University. It was during this time that he met his wife, Reena, who was also musically inclined. After their marriage, they shifted to Singapore, where they resided from 1986 – 1990. He continued to pursue an onstage career that put him on the fast track to fame and prosperity giving performances, traveling frequently all over the world. In 1990 they moved to Jakarta, Indonesia to continue the musical journey which was giving Anil recognition, prosperity and greater achievements. But at the same time, Anil's heart continued to search for the truth as he had been longing for a deep and enduring relationship with God.
Some close friends invited him to train their church choir in Indian music. During these training sessions the love of Jesus was shared with him. They prayed consistently for Anil's family. It opened up his heart slowly and he began to read the Bible. And the truth set him free from all bondages and rituals.
That very year Anil returned to India along with his family. During this period of settling down in Mumbai, he encountered Jesus face to face which moved his heart. He wanted to have an enduring relationship with God for a long time and one night, while reading the bible, he read the verse from John 14:6, I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me . Anil experienced a new freedom - freedom from the past, from bondage, sin, selfishness . He knew that God loves him, and he sent his son Jesus, to earth to pay the penalty for our sins. Jesus took the sin upon Himself so that we might have a restored relationship with our Creator. That night Anil accepted Lord Jesus in his heart.
Now began his real test of faith when he started sharing the Gospel with his wife and children. It was very hard on the family to break their traditional thoughts and social fears crept in. Anil began to lift his family to the feet of Jesus. His desire was that he and Reena be water baptized together. He stood on the promise of God where in Acts 16.31 it says” Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved – you and your household”. God is true to his word and Anil got his entire house to Jesus in the year 2001 and found great inner peace. He uncovered a new direction that God had in store for his life. While the circumstances were same, everything seemed new. Anil testifies “when God puts his hand on you, everything changes so quickly”. A heart shift led to change in his music and his writing.
“A time is coming and is now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth. " John 4.42
Anil had established his own recording studio in Mumbai, and was led to record his first Gospel album, called ‘Khush Khabri' or Good News. This album consists of songs he had written and composed for the first time after accepting the Lord like “Kuch Bhi nahin”, a song based on God's love from 1 Corinthians 13 and the song ‘Khuda Hai Mohabbat', his own testimony. Anil realized that God had anointed him to be a worshipper and as his love for the Lord grew; he recorded his second album, ‘Atma Mein Prarthana', a worship album that brings one to intimate worship experiences. “The Lord gives me the songs” believes Anil. Then he released ‘Ibadat Karo', the all time favorite album, based on the psalms, which expresses God's love for all who experience his goodness and mercy. This next album ‘Aye Mere Baadshah's foot tapping number ‘Yeshu Tujhe Pyaar Karta' speaks about God, with music that makes you dance.
In 2004, the nation wide release of ‘Pray for India', a mix of classic, modern, and original tracks is a celebration that brings people of various backgrounds together. This was greatly appreciated by all denominations of people and was widely circulated in the national media and television. This album created a milestone by bringing the word of God to secular channels and people all over, spreading the gospel of love, prayer and unity. King of Ghazals, Jagjit Singh, joined his hands with Anil and lent his voice for three anointed songs. Comedy superstar Johny Lever acted in the video, Pray for India and gave his full support.
“It is not about the songs we sing in worship. It's about the heart we offer to the Lord,” the humble artist admits, “God can use anybody and He uses us all, exactly where He has planned to use us." Anil has been a passionate worshipper in the past five years. Besides being a composer, he is also a lyricist who believes that music is a powerful tool that reaches out to people. He has written songs in various languages like Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and English. You don't have to know the language to understand what his music is conveying, you just experience it.
Anil has moved a step beyond what he has ever done before. He has, for the first time, worked on an English album; ‘Liberty', which has seven songs. The album has eclectic influences of ethnic Indian sounds, melodies with modern beats. ‘God is creative'. He likes to be worshipped in creative ways, and He calls us to grow in our worship.
Anil has released their First VCD titled ‘Vision, which has six videos including the video of Pray for India along with snippets of the launch night of Pray for India and his Testimony.
The Latest Album titled Meri Rooh Se- By my spirit has songs from Psalms and the word of God. The album comprises of songs of worship, of healing, of breaking bondages, empowering you and filling your life with his love.
Anil travels all over the world proclaiming and singing the gospel. With God's good, perfect and acceptable will in his life, Anil desires to spread the gospel in all nations and lead people to come closer to god and know about the goodness of God. Emerging from a new generation of worshippers, Anil Kant captures fresh sounds and songs that create an environment of intimacy with God. His heart and passion is to create worship music which focuses on live experience & connecting people with God in a closer way.
Luke 4.18 it is written “the spirit of the LORD is upon me because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed”. Having traveled extensively to all the nations and participated in many crusades, conventions, programs, it is the desire of Anil and Reena to see the world touched for Jesus through their music and media.
Today Anil has dedicated his life and work for the Lord just as Joshua 24.15 which says, “As for me and my household we shall serve the Lord”, this family is dedicated to this cause and is determined to see God work in and through their lives.
Family is the most important single social unit of society.
The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 4.9- 12
“Two are better than one,
Because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
But pity a man who falls and has no one to help him up!
Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
But how can one keep warm alone?
Though one maybe overpowered, two can defend themselves,
A chord of three strands is not quickly broken.”
Twenty years ago when we got married, we did not know Jesus, but today, we know for sure that God had chosen us for each other and it was his plan for our lives.
Every family is unique with each individual marriage partner bringing experience and values from his or her family. The choice of a marriage partner is certainly the most important decision a person can make. Marriage is a three way relationship, a chord of three strings. Two chords are the relationship of the spouses individually with their Heavenly Father and one chord is their relationship with each other. Today, when the devil is trying to break up families, with divorce rates on the increase, only a marriage built on the rock i.e. Jesus will stand firm.
We have discovered this secret and encourage you also to build your relationship on a one to one basis with Jesus.
The Bible gives us instruction to lead a happy family life. If you follow the principles given below you will see God's blessings in your life.
Foundation of love – love is the essential ingredient of all families. Be ready to do anything for your family in the everyday situations of life. Go all out for them. Prove your love not by words but in actions.
Foundation of respect – family members should show respect to each other even in the time of disagreement on a particular topic.
Foundation of communication – healthy communication is very important in the family.
Foundation of forgiveness. – If you offend anyone in any way you should seek forgiveness quickly and forgive those who have offended you no matter how deeply you maybe hurt.
Foundation of commitment – no matter what happens, commitment is very necessary for a family to survive.
God himself is the solution to all marital and family problems, and He can be found through prayer, studying His word and by the wise counsel of Christian friends and church leaders
God, I realize how important it is to have a happy family. I choose to take it seriously, the responsibility of establishing my own family in a way that is pleasing to you. I pray, Oh lord that this day you will fill my heart with your love, compassion, commitment and forgiveness that I may respect and have good communication within my family.
In Jesus name, I pray,
1 Peter 3:12 says “for the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer”
