'Wonderful Life' Matthew West Official Music Video

You have to watch this poignant and powerful music video of Matthew West’s new song called ‘Wonderful Life.’

“Ron from Houston Texas spent 3 years fighting ALS, if you knew all that he’s been through
You’d think he’s anything but blessed, but smiling through a phone call
He said let me tell you friend, this life ain’t always wonderful
But what a wonderful life it’s been, it’ll send you flying high it’ll bring you to your knees
It’s the heartbreak and the happiness and everything between”

The amazing song was inspired by an experience Matthew West had with a fan named Ron Janca who was battling ALS and gave Matthew a new perspective on life. There are even photos of Ron’s life and clips of a video call that he had with Matthew included in the music video.

“My goal with that Zoom call was to sing for Ron and hopefully be an encouragement to him, but Ron had other plans,” shared Matthew West. “He spent the entire call encouraging me!”

He continued: “Little did Ron know that at that time I was battling some serious discouragement and was pretty depressed about the circumstances around me. But here was a guy able to see past his own battle with ALS to show kindness to me. I’ll never forget that. A few weeks later I received a call telling me that Ron passed away. I sat down and wrote this song. These past couple years have brought us tears, heartache, sickness and pain, but Ron taught me about the joy and the peace that you can find in this broken and beautiful, gone mad and magical, awfully wonderful life.”

Many people shared online about how the song has impacted them.

“Life is a mixture of everything good and bad, yet the choice is still left for us to use our experience as a springboard to do better. Thank you, Matthew West, for yet another touching new release. This song has blessed me,” writes one person on YouTube.

“This song touches my heart. It gives us a beautiful yet different and true perspective and understanding of life when we hold onto Jesus each step of the way. The love, the pain, the joy. We know it all. But it’s not the end of our story either. And our first moment in heaven one day will make up and repay for every single hardship we had here on earth. Until Heaven,” another person comments.

We hope that you enjoyed listening to Matthew West’s new song ‘Wonderful Life’ today!
