Let It Be Jesus
If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE music. Music that worships the Lord is my most favorite. When I was asked to review Christy Nockels’ (of Watermark and Passion) new album, Let It Be Jesus, I was thrilled! And I was not disappointed. The album features worship songs performed and recorded live. It’s such a blessing! These songs seem new and fresh but at the same time like well-known favorites. I always love that kind of beauty! This album just released today. You can purchase it on iTunes or Amazon.
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.

Christy said in an interview of the experience, “I can’t wait to release this offering and to share what a beautiful night this recording was,” Nockels said. “Something so unforgettable happened as we worshipped Jesus together in wonder and remembrance.” And the true worship is apparent!
I love that these songs are perfect to listen to at home, in the car, before a Bible study, with the family, or at church, during a worship service. I’m very thankful for Christian artists like Christy who continue to bless us and bless the Lord with worship songs.
