article imageReview: Matthew West tugs at the heart with new single 'Do Something' Special

Christian singer-songwriter Matthew West captivates on his new single and music video for "Do Something," which was based on a true story.
It is the follow-up to his multi-week No. 1 single "Hello My Name Is." The song tells the story of a woman named Andrea who was a former university student who spent a semester abroad studying micro-financing in Uganda. During her stay there, she came across an orphanage that was in critical condition, where children were neglected and she decided to put an end to that abuse. She had called her parents and informed them that she would not be returning home, and refused to leave the children until something was done in their favor.
As a result, Andrea and her sister persuaded the Ugandan government to close that orphanage, which left 40 children to her care. She was able to open a new orphanage in Uganda named "Musana," that houses 120 children, with Andrea as head. Musana translates into sunshine in English.
The actual clips and images of Andrea and that orphanage in his music video are raw, extremely moving and compelling, which makes it appealing to all viewers.
"Do Something" sits at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs charts, after charting for 23 weeks. It features stunning acoustic guitar instrumentation and piano playing.
It is a motivational tune that inspires anybody to take a stance, no matter how big or small. "If not now, then when, Will we see an end, To all this pain, It's not enough to do nothing, It's time for us to do something," West sings.
The Verdict
Matthew West's "Do Something" is a song that strikes a chord in the hearts of listeners. This song is proof that anybody can make a difference in the world, no matter what your job is and no matter what the situation is. It garners an A rating, and it reassures that West is one of the best vocalists in the contemporary Christian music genre. Along with "Forgiveness," it is one of my favorite tracks on his Into the Light album.
