Matthew West Announces CD/DVD 'Into The Light: Life Stories & Live Songs'

Jul 16 2013

Matthew West will release a deluxe edition of his Grammy nominated album 'Into The Light' featuring an accompanying DVD. 'Into The Light: Life Stories & Live Songs' will be released on 13th August 2013, with the DVD featuring live concert footage interspersed with the people whose stories have inspired the songs.

'Into The Light: Life Stories & Live Songs' includes the Number 1 hits 'Forgiveness', 'Hello, My Name Is' and 'Strong Enough'. Each share about real-life topics and struggles, such as addiction, forgiveness, living out your faith, restoration, being made in God's image, and more. Fans will be able to hear these songs and much more when West kicks off his 30+ city 'Into The Light Tour', which begins in September.

"Since I began the journey of telling the stories of people's lives through my music a few years ago, it has transformed not only the songs I have written but also the way we bring those songs and stories to the audiences at our live shows," Matthew West shares.

"Many have asked me where they can find these unique videos that we use during the show telling the stories behind the songs. Until now, I haven't had anywhere to send them.

This new DVD allows people to take this emotionally charged and uplifting experience home with them; to share with friends or family who they know might relate and be encouraged by a certain story or song. There is power in a story. I'm so proud of this project and believe it will encourage people to realize the power that lies within their story as well!"

West's current single 'Hello, My Name Is' recently notched its eighth week at Number 1 on the US's National Christian Audience chart, with an audience of 9.8 million. The song's video (see right) is taken from a live performance from this year's successful WinterJam Tour.
