Where's the line to see Jesus"?


About the Song
While at 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 Jesus"?
My sister 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.
It was 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.

Then 2 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.

Getting 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 everyone.
