the mall a couple of years ago, my then four year old nephew,
Spencer, saw kids lined up to see Santa Claus. Having been taught
as a toddler that Christmas is the holiday that Christians celebrate
the birth of Jesus, he asked his mom, "where's the line to see
mentioned this to my dad, who immediately became inspired and
jotted words down to a song in just a few minutes. After putting
music to the words, and doing a quick recording at home, he
received a great response from friends. He sent the song off
to Nashville without much response, except for a Christian song
writer who suggested adding a bridge at the end of the first
chorus. My dad then asked if I wanted to record the song to
see what we could do with it. I listened to the song, made a
few changes to the words to make it flow better, and we headed
to Shock City Studios.
at the studio where Chris, owner and producer, rewrote the 2nd
verse and part of the chorus... with goose bumps and emotions
high, we were all hopeful and felt like we had something special.
The demo was recorded in just under 2 hours and sent off again
to Nashville... still no response.
weeks before Christmas last year, my cousins Greg and Robbie
decided to do a video to see what we could accomplish on YouTube.
The first day we had 3000 hits and it soared from there. We
received e-mails, phone calls, Facebook messages from people
all over asking for the music, CD's, iTunes, anything... we
had nothing. After a couple of meetings with Chris following
the amazing response, we got serious. We headed back into the
studio this past spring... this time with guitars, drums, bass,
pianos, choirs... the real deal.... and here we are today.
iTunes set up, a website put together, and loving that thousands
upon thousands of Christians have come together... remembering
the true meaning of Christmas. Out of the mouths of babes come
profound truths that many adults can not understand. Hopefully
Spencer's observation will cause people all over to reflect
on the love of Jesus, and that one day we will all stand in
line to see Him. We are most thankful to our Heavenly Father
to have this chance to share our music with you. Merry Christmas
