Luis Palau | – Matt Redman: Modern-Day Psalmist

UK-based worship leader, singer, and songwriter Matt Redman shares his testimony and story behind his music.

As a boy in England, Matt Redman did not write or sing wonderful worship songs. When he was just 7 years old, his father committed suicide. Matt was plagued by a little boy’s tortured questions: “Was it my fault? Didn’t he love me?” His mother remarried, but Matt’s stepfather abused him. In the midst of this grim time, God had a plan – a glowing future for Matt. At Luis Palau’s Mission to London crusade, Matt invited Jesus into his heart, and at that moment, he decided his life would be about worshiping his Savior.

  1. Worship in the church was never meant to entertain; it's meant to turn our eyes upon Jesus, the author & finisher of our faith.  Matt Redman is so conscious of this critical truth.  His music excites the desire (in every believer) to glorify God.  He also writes in a key that makes the songs easy for all to join in.
