Centricity Music’s singer/songwriter, Billboard Chartbreaker Katy Nichole was singing in her church choir long before 150+ million people around the world heard her 2022 Dove Award-nominated, K-LOVE Fan Award-winning “In Jesus Name (God of Possible).” The track became the biggest hit this decade on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart, crowning the list for a record-breaking 20 weeks, and is now RIAA Certified Gold.
With her relationship to both music and God inextricably intertwined along her path through anxiety and depression to health and wholeness, Nichole’s debut single, “In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” launched a breakout year that found her nominated for an American Music Award, co-hosting and performing on the GMA Dove Awards Pre-Telecast and realizing her second-straight No. 1 with “God Is In This Story.” Co-written and produced by Grammy-nominated Jeff Pardo, the songs spent 44% of 2022 at No. 1 at radio and topped six 2022 Billboard year-end radio and sales categories. Releasing her full-length debut album Jesus Changed My Life earlier this year, this 11-track odyssey is filled with the unabashed honesty and vocal clarity that have made the 23-year-old one of Christian music’s fastest-rising artists.
Nichole’s third single from the album, “Hold On,” launched with a remarkable 34 out-of-the-box radio adds. The Recording Academy (GRAMMY Awards) featured song and companion K-LOVE premiered video highlights this artist’s personal story of holding on in her darkest moment. Top 5 and headed to the top of the radio charts now, “Hold On” points to a bigger picture beyond what you can see in the moment; beyond the pain, beyond the struggle.
“I know firsthand what it means to be broken and desperate,” reveals Nichole. “However, I have also experienced the beauty and wonder of God redeeming and breathing life into situations that seemed utterly hopeless. I want my music to speak truth and shine a light for those going through dark times.”
Sharing her music live for tens of thousands while on tour, Nichole hit venues across the country with Jeremy Camp, Matthew West and CAIN, plus returned to the Opry stage April 4 after making her Grand Ole Opry debut last year. Being featured now on The Candace Cameron Bure Podcast, Katy has also sang to a worldwide livestream audience via a packed arena at Chris Tomlin’s “Good Friday Nashville” event, performed at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, was featured on Universal Orlando Resort’s “Rock the Universe,” and performs at all the major festivals, fairs and more this summer. This fall she re-joins CAIN for a 33-city tour launching Sept. 20 in Baton Rouge, LA.
