Featuring Matt Maher, Inspirational Speaker and Performer


Juno Award winning, nine-time Grammy nominee and four-time GMA Dove Award winner, Maher is a staple in the artistic and songwriting community. His inspirational songs have garnered multiple radio successes, writing and recording songs such as “Lord, I Need You,” “Because He Lives (Amen),” “Alive & Breathing,” and many others. Matt achieved a career highlight in 2013 when he performed at the Vigil Mass presided by Pope Francis, in front of a crowd of three million people, for World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro. Two years later he performed again for the Pope in downtown Philadelphia as part of the World Meeting of Families, appearing along with The Fray, Aretha Franklin, Jim Gaffigan, and Mark Wahlberg, among others.
