Katy Nichole‘s life has changed after the TikTok video of her debut single, “In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” went viral, garnering over 80 million views.
Nichole recently signed to be an artist on the Christian label Centricity Music after being discovered on social media. The opportunities came flooding in after her song became an anthem to millions on TikTok and Instagram.
The single was written during the COVID-19 pandemic and has a personal meaning to the singer who’s in the midst of her own health crisis.
The chorus was comprised from Nichole’s journal entries that proclaim: “I pray for your healing /That circumstances would change /I pray that the fear inside would flee /In Jesus name /I pray that a breakthrough would happen today /I pray for miracles over your life in Jesus name.”
Her words serve as a bold declaration of her unwavering belief in God’s ability to heal and the power of prayer.
Nichole was diagnosed with scoliosis before penning the song, “In Jesus Name (God of Possible).” Following surgery on her spine, the young singer, who has been singing in church since she was 14, suffered from depression while she was bedridden due to the pain. Three years after her first surgery, Nichole underwent a follow-up procedure to remove the metal rods and screws that were placed along her spine to keep it straight.
“I go into the second surgery, and I come out of it, and the smoke cloud of depression was gone. I encountered the Lord at that moment,” Nichole recalled in a statement shared with The Christian Post. “When I got my X-rays after surgery, my spine was actually straighter than when the rods had been in it. So when I say that God can do miracles, I mean it, because I’ve seen it.”
