Latin gospel singer Daniel Decker makes impact in Armenia.

AMERICAN Latin gospel singer Daniel Decker returned from a ministry trip to Armenia having seen his song "Adana" reach unprecedented popularity. Decker performed the song at a nationally televised concert commemorating the 90th anniversary of the 1915 Armenian Genocide, an event in which 1.5 million Christians were slaughtered by Muslim Turkish soldiers of the Ottoman Empire during World War I because they would not renounce their faith in Christ. The lyrics of "Adana" tell the tragic story of the genocide. Decker, a New York native of Puerto Rican heritage, has recorded the song on his album 'My Offering'.
