An ingenious idea made into an incredible testament to God's power in individual lives, Matthew West's new album, The Story of Your Life, captures the heart and soul of his fans as he belts out Christ-focused anthems in answer to the stories they submitted by the thousands.

Giving his listeners a chance to say something, West responds to pride, abuse, divorce, adoption, and more in original songs such as the radio single "My Own Little World" and the title track "The Story of Your Life".

Careful to keep the integrity of their immensely personal stories, West's soulful vocals and thoughtful lyrics speak volumes to the trials we all face and the hope we have in Christ.

Album Highlights: "The Story of Your Life", "To Me", "Broken Girl", and "The Healing Has Begun"
