ASHLAND, Ky. – Summer Motion, a highly regarded festival in northeastern Kentucky, turned into a perfect meeting place for Christian recording artist Matthew West and the Amy For Africa team.

West met Chris and Amy Compston and Amy was able to briefly share her “Grace story” with him during a meet-and-greet. Mark and Beth Maynard, other officers of AFA, also met West and the four of them had a long conversation with Joe West, Matthew’s father.

Amy is a longtime and diehard fan of Matthew West and she was giddy about the chance to meet him. She also had him sign a copy of his new book “Hello, my name is …”

Matthew West played for 90 minutes at the popular summer festival on the Ohio River.
