New Christmas Song~

A very dear friend of mine sent me this link along with this story...

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.
