My favorite Contemporary Christian songwriter Matthew West is ready to launch Something to Say, his third studio album, and with it, he’s released the first single, You Are Everything, which you can stream on his official website.
YOU ARE EVERYTHING IS SPECTACULAR! It’s got #1 written all over it! Call your local stations and request You Are Everything by Matthew West, you will not regret it. A power ballad in the same vein of Casting Crowns’ Who Am I, MercyMe’s I Can Only Imagine, and West’s own Only Grace, You Are Everything is an amazing lead-off single, and I have no doubt in my mind that this single will propel West back to #1, where he rightfully belongs.
As if my excitement over You Are Everything weren’t enough, Matthew posts on his blog that he’s written a song for the official soundtrack of The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything, the new VeggieTales feature film from Big Idea. The name of the song is The Right Thing, and guess who’s singing it?
Matthew wrote Only the World for Mandisa (as well as a couple of other tracks on her amazing debut album, True Beauty), and his relationship with the American Idol finalist has apparently gotten to the point that they collaborate so flawlessly together. Now, she’ll be singing The Right Thing, a song written by Matthew West, on the VeggieTales soundtrack!
Matthew West, Mandisa, and VeggieTales, together?! Oi vey, I’ve died and gone to heaven!
