ARTIST OF THE DAY
Dove award winning, GRAMMY nominated Matthew West is the songwriting darling of Nashville. A pastor’s son, West grew up in Downers Grove, Illinois and released three independent projects before signing to a major label and issuing his first studio album, Happy. The project yielded the hit “More,” which went on to become the most played song on Christian radio in 2004. His follow-up History would continue his radio dominance.
Then life happened. West underwent a career-threatening vocal surgery in 2007. He didn't know if he'd ever sing again. But God brought healing and fresh perspective. Less than a year after his surgery, West released Something To Say and garnered more listener and critical acclaim than ever before.
The last several albums released by Matthew West have been, in a way, co-authored by his fans. He began writing songs based on stories given to him by his fans both at concerts and through his interactive website.

Verse of the Day
But it is not this way with you, but the one who is the greatest among you must become like the youngest, and the leader like the servant.
To make one pound of honey, a honeybee must tap about two million flowers.
