Multi-award-winning artist and songwriter Matthew West is known for sharing others' stories through his music, and in an exclusive first look, the singer introduces the true story of Robert Muir, a former drug addict whose transformation inspired "Grace Wins."
West wrote "Grace Wins," on his latest album Live Forever, after hearing the story of Robert Muir who, in 2014, attended a West concert with his mother and at the time was heavily addicted to heroin and in desperate need of help. Muir knew he needed to make a life change and during the show he found out about popwe, a non-profit organization that West co-founded with his father, Pastor Joe West.
When Muir returned home, his mother wrote to West and explained how his music impacted her son. Soon after, Muir was contacted by West's father and popwe connected him to Teen Challenge, a Christian-based drug and alcohol recovery program that helped Muir with the tuition for the 14-month recovery program. more >>

Fans of the late Whitney Houston will get to see what the beloved singer's life was like before she reached international stardom in an upcoming documentary that delves deep into her roots in the Church where her singing career started.
"The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures, she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years," said Oscar winner Kevin Macdonald ("The Last King of Scotland," "Marley"), who will be directing the documentary to Rolling Stone magazine. "She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don't traditionally sell."
While the film is still untitled, it will take an authentic look at Houston's life from the church choir to pop stardom. The documentary will reveal interviews with Houston's friends, family and collaborators who were along for the ride. Houston died in 2012 due to a reported drug overdose. more >>
