Here's a word from Becky Kelley; Noted from Her Website (Link Below) "http://wheresthelinetoseejesus.com/"
Becky Kelly quote; 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 goosebumps 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 nothin'.
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.
"Extended Info From Review Follows Below"
This 1998 Lindbergh High School graduate went from being a stay at home mom who can sing to having her voice heard on YouTube. "It's been a really fast jump from basically nothing to this."
Between the demo and professional music videos made for "Where's the Line to
see Jesus," Des Peres resident Becky Kelley's Christmas song has received more
than 2 million hits on You Tube. "We still get up every morning, 'What's the
number today?' We
can't believe how many people from New Zealand, Australia, France, I mean it's all over the world now."
The song lyrics are based on a true story. Two years ago, her nephew, then 4 years old, would be waiting in line for Santa at the mall and ask this: "Where's the line to see Jesus?"
When Becky's father, a professional musician, would later hear the question Spencer asks, he immediately starts writing a song about it. "I go, 'Wow, that's pretty profound for a 4 year old'... worked on it for several days, did a demo cd, sent it out to my friends and within a couple of hours of getting it, most of them in tears saying, 'Wow, you really got something here.'"
He would give the song to the best singer in his family, Becky. First, they would make a demo music video, then look to St. Louis' Shock City Studios to produce this professional one. Both would be put on YouTube. Becky is constantly receiving emails from people telling her how the song has inspired them. "I think it's just the message. Putting Jesus back in Christmas."
"Where's the line to see Jesus?" is now playing on some Christian radio stations across the country. "I have deejays call and say, 'Do you have any other stuff?' And I don't."
So, starting in 2011, she plans on recording some new music, here at Shock City Studios. "We'll try to get our creative juices flowing in the studio, a lot of it has the Christian background, so that will always be a part of it.
