4X GRAMMY® Nominee Matthew West performed at the National Prayer Breakfast this morning in Washington D.C. West was invited by IL congressman, Randy Hultgren, to attend the breakfast after meeting with representatives to advocate for songwriters' rights this past November after performing at the opening of D.C.'s Museum of the Bible. Held at the Washington Hilton for its 66th year with over 3,500 people in attendance, worldwide leaders from over 100 countries gathered at the National Prayer Breakfast for the opportunity to form and strengthen relationships with prayer as the mainstay.

"I felt tremendously honored to sing at the 66th National Prayer Breakfast. To see thousands of people from all over the world coming together in our nation's Capitol to pray and to acknowledge that we are one nation under God was something I will never forget," reflected West. "Just before I sang 'Grace Wins,' Rep. Steve Scalise shared his powerful comeback story of a miraculous recovery from a near tragic shooting last June. I couldn't help but smile as I thought of the lyrics I was about to sing. 'No more lying down in death's defeat, I'm rising up in victory, singing hallelujah, grace wins every time.' I'm leaving today's event reminded of the power of prayer and the importance of us praying for our nation's leaders."

This past Tuesday, Capitol Christian Music Group's radio team surprised West with a plaque commemorating "Broken Things" hitting No. 1 on the Christian Airplay chart. His eighth career No. 1, the hit song is on West's latest, All In (Sept. 22), framed around his desire to go "all in" in every area of his life including, faith, family and relationships.

February and March will find West touring arenas nationwide as part of THE ROADSHOW Tour alongside for KING & COUNTRY, Natalie Grant, Zach Williams and more, hitting 23 markets throughout the U.S. THE ROADSHOW Tour kicks off Friday, Feb. 16, and the all-star lineup will visit Ontario, Seattle, Reno, Dallas and more.
