Singer Zach Williams: ‘Jesus Is in Everything We Do, Keep your Eyes on Him’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Christian musician Zach Williams is ready to celebrate the Christmas season with the release of his latest album, “I Don’t Want Christmas to End.”

In addition to holiday excitement, Williams is also thrilled to be able to go back out on tour and lead people in worship.

Williams is doing a holiday tour, performing his new album from December 2nd to December 18th. 

“After the year we all had, sitting at home, not playing music, not seeing our fans, it feels really good to see people back in a room worshiping together,” Williams said in an interview with Faithwire. “So we’re looking forward to Christmas this year.

“We’re moving into a season where – this is the reason we celebrate Christmas, because of the birth of our Savior,” he continued. “That word ‘Savior’ – that is it. For us, He’s the one who does it all. He provides and takes care of us and has the plan for everything that’s going on in our lives and in this world.”

The singer also opened up about how hard 2020 was, for him and others. 

“It kind of woke everybody up, I think, just to see how quick everything can change in just an instant,” he shared. “You can lose everything you’ve worked for overnight, and a lot of people did.”

However, Williams continued to have faith in God and his plan for us all. He encouraged others to “keep your eyes set on Jesus,” especially during the Christmas season.

“I know it might be hard sometimes to see that,” the singer-songwriter said. “But [Jesus is] in everything that we do, so just keep your eyes on Him. Keep following Him, and it’s all going to work out.”

Williams previously worked with Dolly Parton on his Grammy-nominated song “There Was Jesus.”

“This is very much my story if I think back to the last 20 years that it took me to get to where I’m at in my life,” Williams said. “Even if I go back further than that to my childhood, I think about all these moments that I missed in my life…now I can look back and see that God was in the middle of every one of them and working out the details. It’s just a special song.”

Williams recalled that Parton recognized immediately that the song was “special.”

“I wrote the song with a couple other people and when we got the demo back, I heard this girls voice on it that just reminded me of Dolly Parton’s and I said ‘wouldn’t it be really cool if we could get Dolly Parton to really sing on this.’ Everybody kind of laughed but we tracked down her management and she agreed to listen to the song. The day that I met her, she told me that she didn’t even make it to the chorus and she knew it was special,” Williams said.

“I found out that this is Dolly’s 50th GRAMMY nomination,” Williams added. “I thought how cool to be in this with her… it’s just a special song.”
