Our producer Brandon Bee had a word that he used to express delight or approval. When he saw, or heard something he liked he would exclaim, “Glory!”.
I never learned the story behind why he chose that word. The more I have gotten to know Brandon Bee, I have seen that everything he does, while it may from an outsider as random, is actually thoughtfully chosen so I know it was for a good reason, maybe it was Mary’s song. That could be, but more likely it was the way that the good things that happen in life continuously reveal God’s glory to us. God loves us and is on a mission to bless us and grow us and love on us. Even stuff that seems bad at first, God can use to bless us.
Mary wrote this song a long time ago, it was her dad Harold’s favorite song that she had written and he would often request it when Mary was at a piano. In all the years I knew Harold, his constant love and support were amazing. That is why it seemed so out of character that when he heard that Mary’s first album did not include his favorite song the he got a little angry. But because he insisted that we do a second album so he could have a recording of his favorite daughter (only daughter) sing his favorite song. We didn’t make it in time for Harold to listen to it, he passed away before the project was complete.
