Congrats are in order for gospel singer C West who tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Katie Soriano-West. 

Text “RICKEY” to 71007 to join the Rickey Smiley Morning Show mobile club for exclusive news. (Terms and conditions).

The two wed earlier this month in a suburb outside of Atlanta, then traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica for their honeymoon to celebrate the nuptials. 


To further commemorate the moment, C West — who met Katie in 2016 — released an acoustic ballad about his future with his new bride titled “West.” 


“I wrote this song to express my love for Katie,” he says. “I’ve always told her that she doesn’t have to change anything about herself because she is already perfect for me. As we grew deeper in love, I realized that I did want her to change one thing: her last name. In the creative process of creating this song, I wanted to do a play on words with my last name, but I really struggled. I sat down and I asked God to help me write a song about her and that’s when it all began to come together. Katie reminds me of a beautiful sunset. It rises in the east and it sets in the west. This song is about settling down.” 


We’re looking forward to seeing more from the newly married couple, as they already have a joint Instagram account: @TheCartieCrew.

Congrats to the Wests!
