Becky Kelley – Where’s the Line to See Jesus – …

A friend sent this to me:

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.
