Matthew West, a two-time Grammy® nominee and five-album musician as well as a highly respected songwriter, invited people to share their stories as inspiration for his “Into the Light” (2012) and “The Story of Your Life” (2010) albums. After receiving more than 10,000 letters, he transformed them into beautiful songs about topics such as forgiveness, prayer and mercy. He was also moved to begin Population We, a nonprofit organization that helps people connect to counseling, programs, safe houses and other resources.

Sidewalk Prophets has received the Dove Award for Best New Artist, nomination for Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year, Dove nomination for Group of the Year and had multiple songs on the Billboard Christian Singles chart. David Frey (lead vocalist), Shaun Tomczak (lead guitar), Ben McDonald (guitar), Justin Nace (drums) and Cal Joslin (bass guitar) all have a heart for ministry and music.

Jason Castro, fourth-place American Idol contestant during Season 7, recently joined the Christian artist community. He seeks to use his fresh approach as a ministry to bring more people to Christ.
