Christy Nockels And The Power Of Surrender

Christy Nockels is one of my favorite singers ever. Period. I fell in love with her voice from her days with Watermark, the popular duo with her husband Nathan.

It was in the late 90’s, early 2000’s and I was just beginning to really get in to Christian music. Christy had this elegant and humble way of inviting me into a sacred space. She never over-sang. She just seemed to know what to do with every song. To connect you to God seemed to be her agenda, and for me, it just clicked.

That gentle, honest, gorgeous voice has been singing over my life for decades now. Christy has recorded many solo albums, been a founding member of Passion City Church, and sang with so many artists. You definitely know her voice, and you just might know her name. How did she do that?  

I am convinced it’s that unique ability she has to lead people in worship and almost disappear from the spotlight herself. There aren’t many like her…  

Her latest project, This is the Hour, is the most beautiful worship album I’ve heard in a long time, and it’s my one of my all-time favorite albums. For real. I can’t believe I get the honor of talking to Christy, and I get to share this conversation with you!  I will try not to fan-girl too much because clearly, Christy is not about that.
