Grammy ® nominee Matthew West is continuing to give voices to the stories of thousands with his latest Christmas single “One Last Christmas” out now at digital retailers.
The song was inspired by the story of Dax Locke who passed away from Leukemia at the age of two just last year. However, his love of all things Christmas and desire to live to see the holiday, caused St. Jude’s Hospital, his hometown of Washington, Ill. and literally people all over the world to “decorate for Dax” earlier in the year so that he could enjoy an early Christmas. People put up their Christmas trees, hung Christmas lights and even made sign’s for Dax and then submitted the photos to www.decoratefordax.com. Dax did make it to see one last Christmas, he passed away on Dec. 30 2009. Just a few weeks ago, Dax’s parents gave birth to a baby girl.

“We are so incredibly touched and honored by the song,” remarks the Locke family. “We both cried and hugged each other while watching the video. We miss Dax more than words can express. His memory will shine on thanks to Matthew! We feel so blessed!”
West is also releasing a viral video with information on how people can support the Locke family and their donations to fund St. Jude’s Hospital for one day. To view the video, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye39mgcHC3E.
