But it hasn't always been easy. His songs have a spiritual message and this can sometimes cause misunderstandings. So, to get his point across he combines great concerts and catchy music and a heartfelt message.
In 12 years, Matt Maher has released six music albums. And like many singers, he's using the web and youtube to explain the meaning behind some of his songs.
"We needed someone to show us how to love. We needed someone to show us how to have mercy, how to extend forgiveness. How to lift up the poor and somehow convict the rich to realize that their poverty is much higher if they don't have God.”
He published his last album this past April. Now he's taking part in a concert tour in the U.S and Canada. In July he will travel to Brazil to take part in a music festival with those who attend World Youth Day in Rio.
