Our Vocalist
Nicole Nelson

Nicole was born in a small town in North Carolina. She grew up a tomboy surrounded by land, horses, and cows. While brought up by parents who believed in God, she did not know what following Jesus truly looked like until her late teens when she joined a Christian rock band. Her love of singing was a complete surprise to her family.

Despite growing up in an idyllic country setting, Nicole is no stranger to adversity. She was a victim of abuse, divorce and the fear of infertility. After floundering aimlessly for a few years she and her husband found their way to a wonderful church family and she renewed her dedication to God. Today she is a mother to a high energy little boy and has a wonderful marriage. Together she and her husband serve on their church children’s ministry.
