By the time Anne Garcon was 6 years old, she knew that she had been gifted by God with an extraordinary talent—a tool that can calm the soul, excite the spirit, and remind us of God’s magnificent beauty. With her unique vocal abilities and lush tone, Anne was first exposed to singing at Good Shepherd Baptist Church, where her father, Verma Petit-Frere is senior pastor. It was there that Anne began to demonstrate her God-given musical talent.
Before age 13, she was already a lead soloist of her church choir Good Shepherd Ministries and later became director.
By the time Anne was a teenager, she began to realize that her gift was transforming into something more valuable. She was destined and committed to sharing her passion for music with others. Anne realized that her gift was not just limited to singing, but that of a composer as well. While teens her age engaged in sports, video games, and movies, most of Anne’s time was spent writing songs and composing music, an activity which she found spiritually fulfilling. These musical compositions were fashioned by her distinct style and inspirational lyrics.
Undoubtedly, Anne continued to broaden her horizons, being sought by and participating in a number of Gospel recording groups, choirs and ensembles such as STAJ, SAV, United in Christ Mass Choir, Divine, and the NYS Haitian Interdenominational Mass Choir. She has also lent her gift to a number of local and regional ministries such Cheraky Toussaint and VOI, Esther Lormil and Friends, and The David Metayer Project.
In 2008, after resisting, Anne answered the call to step into the ministry that was destined for years. Backed by an arsenal of anointed vocalists and musicians, Anne Garcon and NOW was formed. This ministry is defined by the very definition of the word itself. NOW is a ministry that is responding to God’s call, will and purpose in this present moment; without further delay. NOW is seeking to serve a generation that is currently in need for a renewed vigor and purpose. The ministry delivers a powerful blend of worship and praise songs that draws us to a deeper level of adoration.
Ignited by her eagerness to serve God, Anne Garcon continues to be an inspiration to others and holds steadfast to her crown of glory by devoting herself to the call God has placed on her life.
