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.
While there are many CDs I love, there are very few that make it to the top of my list. Christy Nockels’ new album, Let it Be Jesus, is one that made it to the top! I saw Christy in concert a few years ago and I have heard her on the Passion CDs, but I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I started listening to her album.
In my moment of wondering, I started listening to her album and I was hooked. This is one of my favorite worship albums in a long time! I think Christy has a beautiful voice and I loved the words of the songs on this album.
There are a lot of times when I am listening to a great worship song that is recorded live and I find the “live” aspect of it to be distracting and, many times, ruining the song. I thought this album was put together very well and I actually loved that it was live.
