Today (June 14), five-time Grammy nominated artist Matthew West shares a new live video for “Wonderful Life.” The video, shot in downtown Franklin, TN, can be viewed below. The song was inspired by an experience with a fan named Ron Janca, who was battling ALS and gave West a new perspective on life.
Earlier this year, West announced his sixth book, “The God Who Stays,” set for release on September 6. It includes a more in depth perspective of the impact Janca made on West in hopes to inspire others. For more information visit thegodwhostays.com.
