Matt Moore tops CMW’s Christian Rock chart with hope-filled ‘Beautiful’
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — Matt Moore’s latest single “Beautiful” recently hit #1 on CMW’s Christian Rock chart and has continued to hold steady in the top 3, making it his most successful single to date.
“Honestly, I've been absolutely blown away by the response to ‘Beautiful!’” Matt shares. “I never dreamed that a song so personal and close to my heart would connect with so many other people, let alone hit #1 on the Christian Rock radio charts! I feel so honored and humbled that I get to share this message of redemption and restoration with the world, and I pray that God will continue to use it to mend broken hearts and bring hope to those that are lost and hurting.”
“Beautiful” is a song that Matt originally wrote for his teenage daughter. He truly believes that the message is one that so many people need to hear. The songwriter says, “‘Beautiful’ is about allowing God to heal our brokenness, to show Himself strong in our weakness, to take the broken and messed up things and make them part of our story. And if a messed up dad can feel this kind of love for his daughter and see her in this way, how much more does God feel this about her, and me, and you?”
The song is the latest single from the 2021 release The Art of Precious Scars, which also included previous chart climber “Broken Pieces.” Matt has recently taken the project to the next level with an EDM remix of “Broken Pieces” and a vulnerable piano ballad take on “The Promise.” For “Broken Pieces,” he collaborated with Christian pop/EDM hitmaker Matthew Parker.
“Matthew Parker is an awesome artist and human being, and he brought an incredible sound and energy to this new remix,” Matt says.
Never one to slow down, Matt Moore is already planning his next stint in the studio. He’ll also be taking songs like “Beautiful” and “Broken Pieces” on the road with dates throughout 2022. Anticipating what’s to come, Matt says, “I just feel incredibly blessed that God continues to provide opportunities for me to do what I love to do!”
