Co-written with Tauren Wells, this new single 'Detail' is a soft acoustic single about God's involvement in the little details of our lives.

Wyn Starks' new EP, 'At the End of the River', with the Fisk Jubilee Singers, is to be released on February 17.
Bird's Eye View - Matthew Parker & Jacob Stanifer
Matthew Parker & Jacob Stanifer release new pop single “Bird’s Eye View” via DREAM Records. This interesting track gives us a picture of life through God's eyes. It highlights the greatness of God's wisdom. Sometimes, we forget that God knows everything; past, present and future. When we're confused, lost and blind towards the bigger picture, that's when we need to rely on God - the One whose strength is made perfect in our weakness.
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you knew everything? Well, God does. Our new song “Bird’s Eye View” is about asking God to give us a perspective that is much closer to what he sees–the proverbial “bigger picture”. When you’re standing with your feet on the earth, you have a limited view of what’s ahead of you, but if you can get a “bird’s eye view”, you can see what’s ahead and have a much deeper, wiser perspective. As the lyrics say, “I just want to see the world like you, [with your] bird’s eye view.“ – Matthew Parker
Following his #2 Billboard Christian Hot AC / CHR song, “Roses”, “Bird’s Eye View” is out now!

Growing up in a music-loving household, he developed a deep love for music. He’s heavily inspired the likes of Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind, and Fire, The Whispers, The Ohio Players, etc. That era of music heavily influenced his singing and how he creates harmonies throughout his music.
