Author Bio

Helen Berhane (born c. 1975) is a Christian Gospel singer who was a prisoner in Eritrea.

Berhane is a member of the Rema church, one of several minority Evangelical Christian churches not officially recognized by the state of Eritrea and heavily persecuted. She was arrested on 13 May 2004, shortly after she released an album of Christian music, after refusing to sign a document pledging to end all participation in Evangelical activities, which included her music. She was detained at Mai Serwa military camp, north of the capital Asmara. She had no possibility of contact with her family and was denied legal representation or medical care.
Berhane was released from prison in late October 2006.[1] She and her daughter Eva were granted asylum in Denmark after fleeing to the Sudanese capital of Khartoum for refuge

Berhane's 2003 album, T' Kebaeku (I Am Anointed), was re-released in Europe in June 2006.
