Katy Nichole, the “In Jesus’ Name” crooner, has recently declared that Jesus Christ is the reason for her success. Her song recently topped music charts and set several new records, paving the way for numerous award nominations for the singer.
Katy Nichole Narrating Her Success Story
The singer has attributed the major success of the new song to the social media platform TikTok. In an interview with CBN News, she explained, “I was going to post just a clip of the bridge of the song. And it was the ‘I pray for your healing that circumstances would change that whole part of the song. It’s just a little clip of it, and I don’t usually pray over my TikTok videos.”
She continued by saying, “It wasn’t something that I was doing on the regular, but for some reason, it was, you know, I was being led to pray over this video before I posted it, and I just said, Lord, touch at least one person. Like it doesn’t have to be a lot of people. Just one person, one story. And that’s the only person I was supposed to reach.”
Nichole went further to explain how the song lyrics were very personal to her. However, she said she had no idea the song would make as much impact as it did.
The song recently won the award for “Best Worship Song of the Year” at the famous K-Love Fan Award. Recounting the experience, she said, “I was in shock when I won the award for Worship Song of the Year. And (it) also just kind of took me back to when I was writing that song and how that experience of writing this song led to that moment and how God just orchestrates things so perfectly.”
Katy Nichole’s Life Testimony
The singer went ahead to share her life testimony. According to her, she had been born with scoliosis, a condition resulting in the spine’s curvature.
She recounted her testimony, “You know, I was born with scoliosis, but it was not diagnosed until I was five. I do remember it getting worse and kind of that fear of knowing it was getting worse. And I may need to have major surgery on my back. And then I had the back surgery in 2015, and it was definitely not exactly how we thought it was going to go. And I came out on the other side in a lot of pain.”
Katy Nichole explained that she was never bedridden but had become stuck because of the excruciating pain that slowly led her into depression. “It literally felt like a smoke cloud had just consumed my life. I knew God was there. I knew he was in it with me. But I could not see him. That smoke cloud was so thick, and it was so intense over my life that I was trapped, and I felt like I was trapped in my own body. I felt I was trapped in my own skin. I felt like I was a person who was looking down on the shell of me. That depression had taken hold of my entire life, and that pain had taken hold of my entire life,” she said.
She recalled how she almost gave up because of the pain. Nichole said, “I reached for a bottle of pills sitting on my dresser. And I looked at it, and I said, ‘It would be that easy.’ I knew what it could do to me, and I went to my bathroom. That bottle of pills fell onto the floor, and I just felt the Lord saying, ‘I’m not done yet. You need to hold on. I held on to those words for three long years. The pain that I felt was excruciating. But the hope, this little, teeny, tiny glimmer of hope, was there. The whole time God was with me, and I reached a place where there were no other options for me. I had gone to every single doctor.”
“No one could figure out why I was in the pain that I was in. And my surgeon said, ‘Well, we can take out the metal rods and screws, but that’s riskier than leaving them in your back.’ And that was terrifying. But at the same time, I said, ‘Take it out. I don’t know if I’m going to make it tomorrow.’
“I came out of the surgery, and I’m telling you, there wasn’t a single window in the ICU that I woke up in, but I saw the light again for the first time.”
These experiences birthed a new Katy Nichole and fanned her gift to flame. She says that she never wants to stop striving to be like Christ.
