Matthew West

Biography

Christian musician and actor known for such hit songs as More, You Are Everything, The Movements, and Forgiveness. He was a devoted baseball participant in senior high school, but his expectations for a university baseball scholarship by no means found fruition. He rather received a four-year music scholarship or grant to Illinois’ Millikin University or college. He made an appearance in the well-received Christian film The Center of Xmas in 2011. He wedded Emily Western in 2003. Collectively they possess two daughters. He published songs for performers like Billy Ray Cyrus before getting an unbiased musician himself.
