When enthusiasts speak, a wise artist will listen, and thatâ€™s the case with the new, Christmas-themed single fromÂ The Lore FamilyÂ onÂ Horizon Records.Â Even as their current single,Â â€œThe World Needs A Song,â€Â was just beginning its climb on the charts, whenÂ Darren LoreÂ played the track for some colleagues at theÂ National Quartet Convention, the response was overwhelming: this Christmas is just the time for the musical message ofÂ â€œHis Name Is Jesusâ€Â to be heard by all.
Written byÂ LoreÂ and hitmakersÂ Chris BinionÂ andÂ Nathan Woodard, the song establishes an irresistible groove from its very first notes, beforeÂ Samuel LoreÂ begins its depiction of Jesusâ€™ birth, building in energy and spirit to the joyous revelation of the chorus:Â â€œHis name is Jesus, Godâ€™s only son, the chosen one /Â Who was born to save usâ€¦â€
AsÂ SamuelÂ notes, â€œ‘His Name Is Jesusâ€™Â is such a fun song! It has a country/southern swing to it unlike anything weâ€™ve ever recorded. The best thing about the song is who it is all about: Jesus! My favorite line comes from the end of the chorus: â€˜â€™Cause no other name could ever do what He does!â€™ We stand firm in our belief that only Jesus can heal, deliver, and save us!â€
Jake Whisnant, who sings bass â€” and was recently married toÂ Fayth LoreÂ â€” further reflects onÂ â€œHis Name Is Jesusâ€: â€œWith its upbeat, country flair, itâ€™s different from your typical Christmas song. This song reminds us that even as a baby, Jesus Christ was and still is the God we have come to love. He is the promised Messiah that would save God’s people from their sins and that’s exactly what He will do for anyone who accepts Him.â€
