Makenzie Phipps’ Video Of Alan Jackson’s “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You” Goes Viral
Country music singer-songwriter Makenzie Phipps is consistent when releasing acoustic covers throughout the week on social media. At the request of her Aunt Zena, Makenzie along with the help of guitarist, Shane Begley, recorded a cover of Alan Jackson’s “I Want To Stroll Over Heaven With You”. The video started to gain momentum after two days and had been viewed 30,000 times. Then, like lightning, the video took off and has been viewed nearly 1 million times and over 10,000 shares. Phipps recently finished recording new music and will be releasing her next single later this fall.
“Hymns have always been so important to me because they were the first songs I ever started singing,” shares Phipps. “My mawmaw got me into singing when I was very young in church, so I enjoy doing them when I can. I felt like recording one that my aunt Zena loves and had mentioned to me in the past. I am just so blown away by how much this song has touched individuals throughout the world, and am blessed to be doing what the good lord intended for me to do!”
