I Wanna Be There - The Isaacs

I have posted about this before but the song I Wanna Be There is still climbing the Singing News charts and we would love to see it go even higher. The Isaacs sang it Sunday night in Haughton, Louisiana. It was just one of the amazing songs in a whole evening of amazing songs but it was pretty special for us.

We first told you about I Wanna Be There back in September of 2013. The song is on the Isaacs' latest CD The Living Years. It was written by Jimmy Yeary, Sonya Isaacs Yeary and Rebecca Isaacs Bowman. The first verse is written about Gordon Mote and the second verse is about Odie. 

It is an awesome song about folks receiving their miracle in Heaven IF they do not receive them here and I wanna be there when they do receive it. I wanna be there when the blind man sees for the first time. I wanna be there when the crippled girl runs for the first time.

The Isaacs and their label have released the song as a single to radio and it is climbing the Singing News Gospel Charts. The label is making a push for the song and we would love to see it go higher. It will be number 11 in a future issue and their label thinks it still has potential to climb.

If you have a southern gospel station call them or drop them an email and tell them you appreciate the song. If you listen on XM send Enlighten an email and thank them for playing it too.

Hey, if you see the Isaacs in person let them know you love them loving on Odie with that song. God knows how we desire the miracle for Odie. One of these days We Will Receive it!

We have heard the Isaacs do it live a few times but we have never been able to get a good recording of it. We could have recorded it Sunday night but we were enjoying it way to much to pull out a phone. Here is a YouTube clip of the album version. If you know Odie, I dare you to listen to it without tears.
