Matthew West has released a brand new music video for the song "Untold." In addition to the compelling new video, Matthew wrote a heartfelt letter to share some of the history of the song and his personal passion for the cause of unborn children. You can watch the music video and read Matthew's letter below.
 


"For years I've been using my platform of music encouraging people to realize how each one of our lives is a story in the making, and how each of our stories can have a great impact on the world. Sadly, we live in a world where many stories are ended before they even have the chance to begin.  

I was reminded of this when asked to perform a benefit concert for a crisis pregnancy center in Dallas, Texas. While there, I was moved by the stories of how many lives had been saved by their work. Weeks later, I received a thank you letter from the organization and one sentence they wrote struck me. 'We hope that you might someday feel inspired to tell the story of the unborn.' That experience at the pregnancy center and their compelling request moved me to write 'Untold.'"

But I wanted to go even deeper than just a song. I wanted to highlight some true stories that provide each one of us with a window inside the difficult choice many are faced with. My hope is that this song along with the stories and resources will be a positive and sincere voice offering people a greater understanding of the value of life and the hope each child should have for a future. I also pray it will serve to honor and inspire ministries, churches, organizations, and individuals who courageously share hope and life-affirming options to all those in need, along with forgiveness and compassion for those who seek it.

Why now? For many churches, the month of January is one where they focus on the sanctity of life. It's also a time where we as a nation are reminded of the anniversary of the controversial Roe v. Wade case, which seems to thrust the topic of abortion into the spotlight each year.

I've found that music can be powerful and often times cuts through to the heart of the matter.

We see this as a way to approach a difficult topic in a sincere and heartfelt way, which is why I felt the time was now for a song like this to be heard."

Sincerely,
Matthew West
