APX Song Used by High School Chorus

It appears that "Don't Stop" won't stop.
As you may know, Journey's 1981 mega-hit "Don't Stop Believin'" was redone with great commercial success by the cast of the television show "Glee" in 2010. It actually went to #4 in the new, choral version, whereas the original classic-rock version only went to #9.
J's oldest daughter, Janna, is currently in chorus in high school, and earlier this fall her teacher was wishing aloud that there was a Christian version of that song. Janna mentioned to her later that her dad's band, ApologetiX, did a Christian version called "Don't Stop Till Egypt."
That song was released on our Wise Up and Rock CD last November and received some radio airplay around Christmas, because it tells of the flight of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph from Bethlehem to Egypt after the visit to King Herod by the Wise Men.
The teacher wound up liking the song so much that she added it to the program for the annual Christmas concert! Janna and some other students auditioned for the solo part last week.
No matter who gets the part, both J. and Janna are extremely tickled that the school will be performing that parody. No matter who gets the part, both J. and Janna are extremely tickled that the school will be performing that parody.
The school's name is Eden Christian Academy, so you might call this story "Don't Stop Till Eden."
