Steven Curtis Chapman is one of the greatest Christian song writers we have in our generation.
While recording his Deeper Roots album at the studio along with his dad Herb Chapman Sr. and his brother, he had his dad sing lead vocal to “I’d Rather Have Jesus.”
The song has a special meaning and emotion for their family, especially for their dad, since recently they sang it together at the funeral of their Grandmother (dad’s mom).
They had to do 8 “takes” in the studio, because his dad was getting emotional and was crying.
But finally when they were able to record the song completely, it was unbelievable, listen to the song here.
Philippians 3:8 – “Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.”
