Reba McEntire Performs ‘Seven Minutes In Heaven’ Live On The Today Show

Country music legend Reba McEntire performed a song, “Seven Minutes in Heaven,” that is sure to cause many eyes to well up with tears on The Today Show.

Sadly, losing a loved one is a part of life. It’s an unfortunate, painful and heartbreaking aspect of living that always hurts no matter the surrounding circumstances. Sure, the passage of time may lessen the sting of that loss, but that hole will always remain, and their absence will forever be noticeable.

In an appearance on The Today Show, Reba performed a song about being momentarily reunited with a loved one who has passed away. Reba, as she beautifully sings the moving and tear-jerking song “Seven Minutes in Heaven,” details how she would spend that limited amount of time in that location. 

She states she would not seek out Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley or even attempt to chat up Peter at the pearly gates. Instead, she would find the person most near and dear to her heart and ask them about their experience in heaven.

“I wouldn’t spend all my seconds asking God questions
‘Cause He knows I’d be back soon
If I had seven minutes in heaven
I’d spend them all with you”

In an interview with Hoda and Jenna, Reba mentioned that the song was especially meaningful to her because she had lost her mother in 2020.

“But when you find a song that really touches your heart and chokes you up, I got to sing it, I got to record it,” Reba said. “And that’s what you’re always looking for is a song that touches your heart. That way, when I sing it, it’ll hopefully touch your heart, too.”

That will undoubtedly be the case for many people who happen to hear Reba’s emotional and beautiful new song, “Seven Minutes in Heaven.”
