Katy Nichole Shares Word of Encouragement With Fans: ‘Your Story Is Not Done’
By Movieguide® Staff
Christian music artist Katy Nichole recently performed at the Rock the Universe Christian music festival and encouraged fans to find hope in Christ.
“I’ve talked about having scars, and I know what it’s like to have pain. I don’t just sing the songs to sing the songs. I sing the songs because that was how I got through my pain… was by writing songs and talking to Jesus,” Nichole said at the festival, which took place at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, from Jan. 27-28.
Nichole is open about her faith journey, her battle with depression, her scoliosis, and how she relies on Jesus as her hope and strength.
Movieguide® previously reported on Nichole’s rise to stardom, after her TikTok of her singing “In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” reached 80 million views:
A few months after its release, “In Jesus Name” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart and now holds the record for the most weeks at No. 1 for a debut single by a female artist on both Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs (20 weeks) and Christian Airplay charts (nine).
“I felt like my story is pretty messy and broken,” Nichole shared. “But I knew God’s handprints are all over my life.”
Despite her success, Nichole recently revealed that at one point she ‘wanted to give up.’
“I didn’t see the hope; I couldn’t find it,” she said on stage. “I had back surgery, and I was in a lot of pain. After I had the surgery, I just saw no hope. I reached the place where I grabbed a bottle of pills. I took it to the bathroom with me, and somehow, it fell out of my hands onto the floor, and the pills spilled everywhere.”
“In that moment, I heard the Lord say to me, ‘Hold on, I’m not done yet,'” she added.
After months of recovery, Nichole said that a rainbow in the sky gave her hope that God was not done with her story.
“I knew in that moment that the words that I was holding on to, the Lord’s words, were going to take me somewhere beautiful, and I trusted Him in that,” she said.
She continued: “You don’t see hope, you want to give up, and you’re just waiting on those words. And sometimes, the Lord speaks through others to bring you those words. I will bring in those words to hold on because your story is not done yet.”
After a follow-up surgery three years after her initial back surgery, Nichole no longer suffers pain due to scoliosis.
