Four-Time Grammy Nominated Christian singer Matthew West recently took to the New York City subway with a live acoustic performance of his song, "Something Greater."
West released his new album, All In on Sept. 22 and the musical project is being pegged "the most personal project he's done in years." The theme of the album is centered around what it looks like to devote one's life completely to the areas of faith, marriage, family, and the world. The singer took that "all in" mentality around the United States while promoting his new release and that led him to the New York City subway.
"There's something greater happening here ... yes, here, even in the New York City subway," West declared on Social Media along with a video performance of him singing one of his new songs.
The Illinois native stood boldly at the 53st and 7ave station in between the B, D, and E subway lines.
"It's beautiful, it's tragic/ It's something more than magic/It's the laughter, it's the tears/It's the road that led us here/It's the majesty, the mystery/It's a billion heartbeats symphony/Like a river to the ocean/One hand sets it all in motion," he sung out. "Do you ever get the feeling/That there's something greater happening here/Do you ever get the feeling//That there's something greater happening here/It's like our hearts are a part of a bigger story."
Although West proclaimed "Something Greater" over the popular city, the song is really about his own life and the fact that the plans he had for himself were nothing compared to God's plans for his life.
Since its release, All In has landed on multiple Billboard Charts. It came in at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart and No. 20 on the Billboard Top Albums chart.
West is now on the 30+ city "All In" Tour, which also features Jordan Feliz and special guest Leanna Crawford. To get a copy of the new album or for more information visit his website.
