Matthew is the son of Daniel and Tammy Howell. He accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior of his life at the age of seven. He would anxiously await to be called to the stage to sing “This Little Light Of Mine”, with The Howell Family. Singing has been a lifelong dream for him. Matthew is very active in youth ministry at the Thayer Freewill Baptist Church, and loves to spend time in the summer working at Camp Niangua. His hobbies include singing and traveling, all kinds of sports, including playing golf with Daniel and David.
