Lily Isaacs is a vocalist and matriarch of the world-renowned and award-winning country and bluegrass gospel group The Isaacs. She was born in Germany after World War II to two Polish Jewish Holocaust survivors and moved to the United States when she was 2 years old. She grew up in the Bronx, New York studying theater and performing on Off Broadway, and in 1968 recorded a folk album on Columbia Records with her friend as “Lily and Maria.” She became a Christian in 1971 when a death in the family brought her and patriarch Joe Isaacs to church for the first time. Soon after, they began singing Christian music and laid the foundation upon which the Isaacs’ ministry has been built. Also a 30-year breast cancer survivor, she was the inspiration for a hit country song called “I’m Gonna Love You Through It,” recorded by Martina McBride. Lily’s testimony has been an inspiration to people around the world, so much that she has written an autobiography about her life’s story. Her love for Jesus has brought her through every chapter of her life and she loves to sing and share about His love.
