The Story Behind “Waymaker”
Hi, this is Michael W. Smith. I first heard about the song Waymaker through my daughter, Anna. She knew I was looking for songs for the live event we were going to do in the summer of 2018. Awaken, which is the record that has Waymaker on it, is where we prayed over our city and sang over our city. It was an amazing evening. My daughter had had some personal struggles. She knew a lot of other people who had been facing struggles and thought, wow, what a song. Come to find out this song has been around for three years. It came out of Nigeria. So we did it that night at Bridgestone, and it was powerful. When we recorded Waymaker that evening, something shifted in the atmosphere, and I knew this would be a song that I would possibly be singing for the rest of my life. So I’m excited about the single and grateful that Anna introduced me to the song.
