ISAACS - Favorites: Revisited By Request
Grammy-nominated and award-winning family group The Isaacs have just re-recorded some of their classic hits and most-requested songs. “Favorites: Revisited by Request” features the intricate, family harmonies that have made them a household name among Gospel, bluegrass and country music lovers and led them to performances on some of the world’s most-celebrated stages.
“When you sing a song for years and years it naturally changes,” stated group member Sonya Isaacs Yeary. “You’ll emphasize a word differently, or a harmony part might change a little bit. An inflection or a way that you say it or sing it might change. You just get comfortable with a song, and the more you sing it together the better it gets. The more we sing these songs the more we enjoy singing them.”
That list of songs includes such signatures as “It Is Well (Elisha’s Song),” “I’ve Come to Take You Home,” “He Understands My Tears,” “Stand Still” and more, including “Is Not This the Land of Beulah,” which Ben Isaacs described as a song he relates to in a new way these days.
“That song, to me, is timeless,” Ben says, “but I think as I’m maturing and getting older I’m understanding more about the Land of Beulah and heaven and where I want to be in my relationship with God. When you’re younger you don’t always focus on the future. You focus on the ‘right now.’ I see that song in a new way now.”
No collection of Isaacs’ favorites would be complete without selections that feature their incomparable a cappella arrangements, which garner consistent standing ovations in venues ranging from concert halls and churches to bluegrass festivals. Fans will enjoy their requested rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner” as well as “I Have a Father Who Can.”
Another track that is special to The Isaacs is “From the Depths of My Heart,” a hit penned by Sonya and Ben. “This year is the 25th anniversary of this song,” stated Lily Isaacs. “It was a number one song in Gospel music for several months when we first recorded it. We thought, ‘How cool would that be to re-record something after 25 years?’ A lot of the fans that we’ve met in the last 10 or 15 years may have never heard it.”
Becky Isaacs Bowman added, "I can’t say there’s one song on this record I’m ashamed of or embarrassed of or that I theologically disagree with today, and that’s important. These songs we sang and believed in 25 or 30 years ago when we were establishing our careers still stand the test of time.” Turn back the clock with the Isaacs as they sing “Favorites: Revisited By Request.”
