Nashville, Tenn. (December 12, 2012) - Four-time GRAMMY® nominee Matthew West is slated to perform before two major, national television audiences over the next week with stops at Katie and Fox & Friends. West will perform his hit single, "Forgiveness," which has inspired radio listeners and is featured on his praised new album, Into The Light. Also set to appear on Katie are Renee Napier and Eric Smallridge, whose touching story has become the inspiration behind "Forgiveness." The acclaimed singer-songwriter will perform live this Saturday, Dec. 15 on Fox & Friends, which airs at 6:00 AM - 10:00 AM EST on FOX News Channel. His performance on ABC's No. 1 new talk show, Katie, will air next Wed., Dec. 19 (check local listings).

He was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for Into The Light, as well as a songwriting nomination for his contribution to the Casting Crowns song "Jesus, Friend of Sinners." Into The Light was released in September to across-the-board praise and stellar reviews.

Matthew West will pre-headline the renowned Winter Jam Tour Spectacular in the spring of 2013, joining fellow GRAMMY® nominee TobyMac, rock phenomenon Red, "Hold Me" songstress Jamie Grace and others. For more information on the Winter Jam Tour, visit: http://www.jamtour.com/.
