Due West performing Everything Is Beautiful is one of today’s YouTube additions to Top Country Music Videos.
Everything Is Beautiful is from the soundtrack to the 2010 film Letters to God. Due West producer Jason Deere (along with Trina Harmon and Josh Snyder) wrote the song for Tyson Busenbark, who was stricken with cancer as a teenager.
Due West had become friends with Tyson as he battled his illness and had performed impromptu concerts at Tyson’s high school and donated concert proceeds to help cover his medical expenses. One of Tyson’s last requests was to have a song written from him to his Mother. “Everything Is Beautiful” was that song. Sadly, Due West flew across the country to sing the song in August of 2008 at Tyson’s funeral. He was eighteen years old.
