Nicole is originally from the Canton, Ohio area and was raised in a loving, Christian home. She was very active in her local church, where at a young age Nicole discovered she was blessed with a God-given ability to sing and the desire to use her gift for the Lord. She worked diligently to refine this gift and sang in many local concerts and productions. She later attended Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana, where God continued to bless her with incredible opportunities to use her musical gifts for Him.
Nicole focuses her ministry on entering into the presence of God through a powerful vertical worship style to raise our personal standards and create an atmosphere of expectancy to receive God’s favor. Nicole is an accomplished professional gospel soloist and was privileged to perform with several gospel music artists over the years. She also is a former studio singer for the Gaither Music Studio (www.gaither.com) where she perfected her unique calling of ushering in the presence of God through music. Nicole has a passion for mentoring other musicians and teams to use their abilities and talents to create high-quality worship that ushers in the presence of God. She also has a heart for encouraging women along their faith journey to find and follow God’s purpose for their lives.
