Based on his own life story, Grammy-winner Zach Williams' powerful "Rescue Story" is a reflection of where Williams’ life was 20 years ago to now; singing about the moments and places that he didn’t even realize God was involved.
Videotaped live at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre, here's "Rescue Story" by Zach Williams.
"Rescue Story" is the title track to the 2017 GRAMMY-winning album, 2017's Chain Breaker. Writing music and playing guitar spanning for more than two decades, it was when Williams completely gave his life to Christ that everything changed and he knew he'd found his calling. He now has a renewed vision of who he is as an artist, a songwriter, and a performer, stating, “I have a lot to say about what I walked through to get to where I am. “Over the past few years, I’ve met all kinds of people just like me, people who are dealing with addictions, cancer, suicide,” Williams explains.
“Everyone has a different yet such a remarkable story. These are the people I write for because they are me. I’m the average guy out there struggling just like everyone else, and the folks who are coming to our shows don’t get a chance to share their own stories on a bigger stage.” Then, "Rescue Story" becomes a platform where others can reflect on their own life stories, and say a corporate "Amen!" because of God's faithful Rescue of us all.
“So many times I was in the wrong places and making wrong choices, yet it was God who was keeping me safe, even when I thought he was too far gone,” he says.
