NASHVILLE, TENN – 17 August 2015 – On Saturday, August 29, four-time GRAMMY® nominee Matthew West will appear in Birmingham, Alabama in front of thousands during the Restoring Unity event to perform his hit single “Do Something”. Restoring Unity is a two-day event helmed by Glenn Beck which supports his non-profit organization, Mercury One.
When West appeared on Beck’s radio show earlier this summer, pictured below, to talk about his brand new album, Live Forever, the two made an instant connection. And during their visit, Beck soon realized that Matthew West was the artist and songwriter behind “Do Something,” the very song that Beck wanted as the theme for his Mercury One event, Restoring Unity. Leading up to August 29, “Do Something” can be heard every day on Glenn Beck’s TV show. To find out more about this very special event, please visit Now.MercuryOne.org.
West released Live Forever on April 28, which also became his first No. 1 album debut. With his latest album, West continues his mission to tell a story of a different kind with his music-to transform listeners’ stories into life-changing songs. The album’s second single, “Grace Wins,” debuted today with the most adds at AC/Hot AC radio and can be heard now across the nation. West is promoting his new single with a brand new music video and social media campaign with #GraceWins.

In between festival dates, last weekend West appeared at Chicago’s famed Wrigley Field for the Cubs’ home game to sing the National Anthem. He also performed “God Bless America” in front of the packed stadium and went on to watch his favorite team win against the San Francisco Giants
