Calvin & Alarice Hong

Pioneers of Awaken Generation

Our dream has always been to see a worship culture flourish across this nation, where worshipers are not only empowered and equipped in their musicianship but also in their heart of worship and character. Our own lives were radically transformed when mentors came alongside us to speak into our lives and call out our destiny. We pray that at Awaken Generation - within a thriving community of creativity, mentorship and His presence - that you will discover your unique musical gift, nurture your talent and grow in your ministry and leadership potential.

Libby and I are honoured to call Alarice and Calvin friends and fellow warriors in ministry.
Their work with Awaken Generation is reflective of their obvious anointing for powerful ministry, for the local church and for those with a calling to Christian arts and worship. They have a proven track record within their own nation and abroad and this doesn’t happen without much sacrifice and prioritisation.

It’s been beautiful to observe their journey through the years individually and then to watch the Lord bring them together as a powerful team now leading so many others into their God-given destiny using their God-given gifts! We highly recommend Alarice and Calvin and are 100% behind Awaken Generation!

One of the greatest blessings in traveling the world is meeting young worship leaders and trainers who excel in both gifts and character. Alarice and Calvin are powerful yet humble worship pioneers with a heart for building people and establishing revival. Alarice is a rising influencer with a gift for songwriting and a powerful voice. As she worships she creates atmospheres that easily facilitate God-encounters.

Ps Sidney Mohede

International Worship Leader/Network Pastor JPCC

There is such a hunger in understanding worship and worship-music in our generation today. Ultimately, worship is not a ‘course’ to be studied and discussed but a lifestyle to be daily lived, an experience of being in His glorious presence and an encounter that will forever transform us from the inside out.

I am so grateful for friends like Calvin and Alarice that will lead & mentor a new generation of worshipers through their ‘Awaken Generation’ program. Excited to hear all the new songs and powerful impacts they will make for the churches in our region.
