You probably recognize the name Matt Hammitt. That’s because he was the center of a lot of talk years back when he left the band Sanctus Real to spend more time with his family. Hammitt was the lead singer of the band for 20 years.
The band has moved on, with a new lead singer and it looks like Matt is as well. The singer recently released a lyric video for the single, ‘United Again.’ With the protests and lack of unity surrounding the electiion, Hammitt felt that he needed to bring the church closer together.
‘Today, it seems there’s only one thing that most Americans can agree on; that our nation is divided, shares Hammitt. ‘Many are asking the questions about how, or even if, our country can heal. A long list leaders have claimed that they would bring us together, bring us hope, but no president or administration has the power to do that. On this inauguration day, I’ll say a prayer for our president. He has been given a task greater than any man can bear on his own. I’ve also decided to share a song of hope, because I still believe that the gospel and love of Jesus Christ holds the power to heal and transform our lives and our nation.’
We love that he came out of retirement to speak up for what our nation really needs right now.
