As a worship leader for many years, she has been an integral part of Passion Conferences from its inception in 1997. She’s seen first hand music sweep people into the presence of God in a powerful way. A pastor’s kid, who was born in Fort Worth and raised in Oklahoma, she grew up singing in church. She met her husband, Nathan, in 1993 at the Christian Artists Seminar in Estes Park, Co. They recorded an independent record with fellow worship leader Charlie Hall under the name Sons & Daughters that led to an invitation from Louie Giglio to participate in the first Passion conference in Austin. Christy’s voice gained a national platform when she and Nathan formed the duo Watermark, recording four acclaimed albums before that musical season ended, paving the way for Christy’s solo career. In 2008, the couple moved to Atlanta to become part of Passion City Church where she serves on the worship team with sixstepsrecords labelmates Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill. The following year, Nockels released her acclaimed solo debut, Life Light Up and spent much of the next two years touring with Tomlin and Passion.
Let It Be Jesus is Christy Nockels 3rd solo album. It’s full of great worship and praise and my favorite song is the first track “Freedom Song”. It’s upbeat and fun but most importantly its great worship.
She has an awesome sound with a mix of country and contemporary. I’ve really loved her for a long time and was a HUGE fan of the duo Watermark, of which she was a member. You can definitely feel the great passion she has for worship. And who wouldn’t with Chris Tomlin and Kristian Stanfill as your worship team mates.
This is quickly becoming a favorite CD for me and I look forward to more music from Christy.
