History

History

Theo Bessem was born in Brighton, England to Ghanaian parents. At age 7, she and her family left England and moved to Lusaka, Zambia where her father had obtained employment. The family then moved to Ghana in 1976 and it is here (at age 15) that Theo found out, to her surprise, that she could sing!

With this new revelation, Theo joined her school choir and sang in musical productions. Having given her life over to the Lord at an early age and now recognizing her gift, Theo joined one of the renowned gospel groups in Ghana called “Joyful Way Incorporated” and ministered with the group for a number of years before returning to the UK in 1987.

It was in the year 1994 that Theo realized that God was giving her the ability to write songs. She seemed to be receiving songs in her spirit as complete downloads or in snippets. The songs came at random times: while driving, during or after the preaching of a sermon, in the early hours of the morning… To date, Theo has six recording projects under her belt

Theo now resides in Vancouver, Canada where she and her family migrated to in 2013 from England. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Ancient and Contemporary Worship Studies from Christ College (now PLBC), and is currently the Director of Music and Arts at Calvary Worship Centre, a multi-cultural, non-denominational church with over 1000 members from over 75 nations. She has held this position for over 10 years and has been instrumental in mentoring worship leaders and teams both at Calvary and beyond.
