Matthew West - Hold You Up
For the last few Valentine Days Christian radio station K-LOVE has sponsored a promotion whereby listeners are invited to send in their love stories, and Christian artist Matthew West reviews them and picks out one for which he creates a love song to go with the story. For 2010 he picked the story of Ann and Jim Matthews of Jones Mill, Pennsylvania. Ann developed an aggressive form of breast cancer at age 27, and her story tells about the loving support of her husband to hold her up through the ordeal. As I listened to the song I could see the parallels between her husband's support and Jesus' support, so I made sort of a parallel video. Don't know if the concept worked or not, but in any case it's a wonderful story. Here is a link: http://www.klove.com/BLOG/post/2010/02/12/Matthew-West-Winning-Love-Story.aspx
