Singer/songwriter and 2022’s breakout Centricity Music artist Katy Nichole recently released her self-titled debut EP at digital and streaming outlets everywhere. The highly anticipated EP features the multiformat No. 1 hit, “In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” the current single climbing the charts, “God Is In This Story (Feat. Big Daddy Weave),” “Jesus Changed My Life” and three more tracks, each drawing from her prayer journal and well of life experiences.
“This EP is coming from a real, honest and not holding back anything place because I’m so unashamed to say the name of Jesus and to tell people how good He really is and how treasured by God they are,” says Nichole. “I want people to know that my God is good even though my circumstances are not always good.”
Singing songs from her EP, Nichole made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 18, receiving a rare standing ovation for a debut appearance from the thousands in attendance. A behind-the-scenes view of her appearance can be seen here.
Along with her Opry debut, Nichole received a standing ovation on the same stage during the K-LOVE Fan Awards, where her song “In Jesus Name (God of Possible)” was named “Worship Song of the Year.”
Holding the most consecutive weeks at No. 1 for a debut single from a female artist ever on both the Billboard Hot Christian Songs (14 weeks) and Christian Airplay (9 weeks) charts, “In Jesus Name (God of Possible)” also continues at No. 1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel Songs chart, occupying that top spot virtually every week since it released on January 26. Nichole further breaks into the Top 5 on the Billboard Emerging Artist Chart and was named a YouTube “Trending Artist On The Rise” for the song’s concept video that has been streamed nearly six million times.
“I’m completely in awe of Jesus,” shares Nichole. “Over this last few weeks, I’ve played both of my dream venues, Red Rocks Amphitheater with Chris Tomlin and the Grand Ole Opry. So many dreams that have been kept in my heart since I was about 11 years old have come true, and I’m beyond thankful right now… I’m honored that the Lord has given me this gift to share His mighty name with others.”
