Lily Isaacs is the vocalist and the matriarch of the group. She was born in Germany after World War II to two Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors and moved to the U.S. when she was two. Lily and her parents became American citizens at Ellis Island when she was nine years old. She grew up in the Bronx, NY studying theatre and performing on off Broadway and The Woodstock Playhouse, and in 1968 recorded a folk album on Columbia Records with her friend as "Lily and Maria" where they toured the country and played at such prestigious venues in Greenwich Village as Gerdes Folk City and The Bitter End Café. Lily first came to know the Lord in 1971 when a death occurred in her former husband’s family. The funeral was her first time ever being in a church. Soon after, they were inspired to begin singing Christian music, and laid the foundation upon which the Isaacs ministry has been built. Lily is also a 30-year breast cancer survivor who was the inspiration for the country hit by Martina McBride, “I'm Gonna Love You Through It,” co-written by daughter Sonya, Jimmy Yeary and Ben Hayslip. Lily's testimony has been an inspiration to people around the world, so much that she has written two autobiographies, You Don’t Cry Out Loud and A Wedding Dress With Combat Boots. Being a Jewish believer caused struggles and pain in the relationship with her parents. But in spite of it all, her love for Yeshua (Jesus) has brought her through every chapter of her life. Her passion is to sing and share about His love.
