Music by Irlene Mandrell

We Will Stand

(Eric Horner)

We live in the land of the free. A nation united by our common beliefs. That we’re all created equal; every child, woman and man. We have the right to live our dreams the way our forefathers planned.

There are those who vow to take it all away. To change our way of life and make us fear each coming day. But America is stronger than the acts of evil men. We will overcome them, no they will never win.

We might bend, but we won’t break.

We live and die for freedom’s sake.

Our liberty was won by God’s own hands.

We will not fail.

We will not fall.

We will stand.

 

So let us pray for wisdom from above. And we will be victorious as we defend the land we love.

 

We may bend, but we won’t break.

We live and die for freedom’s sake.

Our liberty  was won by God’s own hands.

We will not fail.

We will not fall.

We will stand.

 

We will not fail.

We will not fall.

We will stand.

 

We will stand.

We will stand.

We will stand!

 

   “When I heard the words to this song, it made me cry.” shares Irlene.  “Talkin’ about it does, even after I heard it so many times. They’re strong to me.  This one just hits close to home. When he told me it was after 9/11 - I’m okay, I guess that’s why.  Because he has so much heart. It was about something traumatic that had just happened, that he wrote it and  I guess I get that out of it.  So I’m hoping that when I sing it, because I feel so strongly about it, that it comes across.”

   Irlene gains the help from her three children Deric, Vanessa and Christina as they lend their talents for background vocals.

   “Deric didn’t play drums on this one, although he’s played on a few of the tracks that will be on the album.” shares Irlene. “All three of my children are doing the background vocals.  That’s the only background vocals I’ll have on all of them will be my kids and they were singing on this.”

  Irlene is currently working on her debut album.  The release date has not been set.  However, Irlene plans on releasing several singles prior to the album’s release.  The album will feature songs that portray God, family and country.  Irlene ensures us that the entire album will be dedicated to the Military.

   Interesting parties can find Irlene’s debut song “We Will Stand” where ever downloadable music is sold.  This song has hit our list of Top Songs of 2015 and has earned a nomination for the Spirit Award’s Song of The Year Award.

   Some stories have an ending.  However, in reality one story becomes part of another story that keeps going for generations to come.  This is a story, in which the author is still writing.
