West's song, 'Hello My Name Is,' appeared on his 2012 album, 'Into the Light.' 'Into the Light,' is West's second studio album to document the personal stories that his fans, which were sent him in more than 10,000 letters from around the world. He plans to also released a new book, called 'Forgiveness: Overcoming the Impossible,' on June 23 documenting some of the stories that he has received while working on his newest album
'Hello My Name Is,' has held strong to the No. 1 position on the Billboard Christian songs chart for about 16 weeks. It is an illustration of God's great love and forgiveness making us anew through Christ. It tells a story of Jordan, a former drug addict who became addicted to Oxycontin after it was prescribed to him following a football injury. His addiction completely took over his life, robbing him of his college football scholarship and everything that he had worked for in his life.
However, at a rehabilitation center, called 'Teen Challenge,' in North Carolina, Jordan discovered that God's plan was not for him to be defeated by the past, but instead it was for him to overcome these challenges and to grow and be made anew in Christ. From there, Jordan received a masters degree, became a teacher and a coach, got married and discovered a calling into full-time ministry.
The title of the hit song was inspired by the way in which Jordan ended his letter to West. He said, "These days I introduce myself a little differently than I used to. Hello, my name is Jordan and I am a child of the one true king!" In this way, he has been able to overcome his past and, through Christ he has been renewed, redeemed and restored to a new life.
