Scott MacIntyre, who has been blind since birth and has received two kidney transplants, is releasing a new track, “Light of the World,” to Christian AC and Christian Hot AC/CHR radio venues today. A live rendition of the song was included on the television special “Christina and Scott MacIntyre: Enduring Hope,” which is still airing on local and national networks around the country.
Former Idol judge Paula Abdul called MacIntyre a “inspiration to the entire world,” and he thanked God for using his disabilities and health issues to inspire hope.
“It’s difficult for me to entirely wish away my disability since I’ve seen God use it to transform so many lives,” he says.
“Light of the World,” co-written by MacIntyre and Jack Mooring of Leeland, is “a powerful declaration of faith, urging Jesus to have his way in the hearts of believers,” according to MacIntyre. “Jesus says that we shall not wander in darkness if we follow Him. There will be moments when His Light will reveal locations where we have placed our reliance in earthly things, which may not always be pleasant. But if we surrender to His love, we can begin to share the brightness of eternal life with Him and experience it for ourselves.”
MacIntyre’s previous radio success includes the tune “Look Up!” which was the No. 1 hit on the Christian Radio Chart in 2018 and his holiday single “Christmas Angel,” which became one of the top songs on the chart.A frequently-heard radio personality, MacIntyre and his wife Christina produce the devotional podcast, “Enduring Hope,” which is heard in over 80 radio markets weekly. The couple has two kids and will be celebrating eleven years of marriage this August.
