Video: Where’s the Line to See Jesus?
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:
A Christmas song prompted by a 4-year-old’s question, “Where’s the Line to See Jesus?” and recorded locally by our town’s Becky Kelley has gone viral on YouTube with more than a half a million hits in fewer than two weeks.
Kelley, 30, of Des Peres, said today that the response to the song and video has been amazing. Since the video’s taken off, Kelley’s been spending up to three hours a days answering fan e-mails from around the world and fielding calls from radio station DJ’s and record producers.
“I’m blown away,” Kelley said. “DJ’s are calling and asking me, ‘Who are you? Do you have anything else? What other records do you have.’ And I have to tell them this is it. I don’t have anything else.”
The song was prompted by a question Kelley’s nephew, Spencer Reijgers, asked while they were standing in line at a mall to see Santa. She mentioned it to her father, Steve Haupt, a St. Louis business owner with a background as a pianist, and he wrote a song around the idea.
Haupt is an elder with the McKnight Road church, where Becky Kelley is a member.
