    LIFE
    William has brought the joy of the Lord to the world of worship. He has opened up the door to what life was made for- enjoyment with God. William was born and raised in the heart of Detroit, Michigan where he grew up surrounded with a loving family full of gospel music in their souls. His mother directed the church choir and William was constantly surrounded by soul singers and amazing vocalists. Some of his earliest memories were of his mother telling him that he was singing too much. Although, he never took vocal lessons, William found inspiration for singing from artists such Brian McKnight, Boys II Men, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, among many others.
     
    When Will was twelve, his parents accepted a ministry opportunity and moved to Raleigh, North Carolina to pastor a church. During those years, William started writing his heart out.
     
    When he was eighteen, William was baptized in the Holy Spirit. “I knew that I had a heart for the Lord and wanted to pursue him, but felt hindered by a lot of issues in my own life.” Will said, “When that encounter happened, my love for God grew exponentially and I started seeing supernatural manifestations of the Holy Spirit on a regular basis.”
     
    In January of 2007, he moved to be a part of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Missouri. He began to encounter the Lord in surprising ways and it was a very sweet time for him and the Lord. His skills in song writing and prophetically singing increased during this season. He served underneath the leadership team and worship leaders such as Justin Rizzo, Misty Edwards, Cory Asbury, Julie Meyer, Matt Gilman, and other inspiring artists.
     
    Later in 2007, William traveled to Redding, California to meet Brian and Jenn Johnson and the leadership team at Bethel Church. He fell in love with the worship that was coming out of Bethel and found that the hearts of the people there were he was engaged in worship where the worship leaders just guided the church meetings instead of initiating them.
     
    In 2009, William moved to Redding, California, to join Bethel Church where he currently lives now. He is worship leading at Bethel Church and says that it is his dream come true. “I am very passionate about what I get to do week after week at Bethel Church. We have an amazing team of musicians, worshipers, intercessors, and leaders who pour it out week after week,” says William, “God is also sending us many musicians and singers who are coming here to Redding to be trained and equipped in worship and the supernatural. And not only do we get to minister locally to our church here in Redding, but we get to impact nations with the good news of the kingdom.”

    Fantastic! | Posted August 01, 2011
    The first time I heard William Matthews' music was on Bethel's recent live album, Be Lifted High. His songs Deep Cries Out and Hope's Anthem were featured on the album and quickly became favorites of mine. His music is fantastic and I have yet to hear a song I don't love!

    Yes. His new album Hopes Anthem is where worship music is going. He's incorporated electronic music tracks that were able to compliment his keyboards and voice. Great for church worship.

    Solid debut | Posted July 31, 2011
    I didn't like the bluegrass/country aspects but the rest of the album is very good.
