**NEW CHRISTMAS SONG....one of the best!**

    **Beautiful story and song.. enjoy.... **
    *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. *
