You might be thinking – you guys at Twelve:Thirty are all about helping me Transform my Worship Experience, why do you do interviews and podcasts with Christian Music Artists?
The answer is simple: A Christian music concert is a Worship Experience.
These artists spend their lives writing and performing music on stage in front of thousands. They are intricately involved in planning set designs, production, media content, set lists, and hundreds of other details for the experiences they create. They are Worship Leaders. And we can learn from them.
I had the opportunity to chat with veteran artist and Worship Leader Nicole C. Mullen about her career, her music, her concert experiences and her upcoming tour with several other veteran artists.
Check it out.
While studying at Christ for the Nations Institute in Dallas, Nicole C. Mullen joined a vocal group called Living Praise and began pursuing a music career. Under the name Nicole, she recorded her first solo album, Don’t Let Me Go, in 1991 with the independent label Frontline Records, and produced by Tim Miner. She continued her singing-songwriting-choreography career in the 1990s, singing backup for Michael W. Smith and the Newsboys, writing for Jaci Velasquez, and working as a dancer and choreographer with Amy Grant. She also provided backup vocals for the music video at the end of the VeggieTales program, Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space! and the opening of the VeggieTales presentation, Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed. She was signed to Word Records in 1998 by VP of A&R Brent Bourgeois. Her fourth album, Talk About It, was certified gold for sales in excess of 500,000 copies on April 15, 2008.
