A wife and mother of three, Nicole C. Mullen just happens to be one of the most inspirational communicators of our time.

Nicole’s gifts have allowed her to travel all over the world, and they have brought her many accolades. She has won multiple Dove Awards, for Song of the Year (Redeemer, and On My Knees), Female Vocalist, Contemporary Song of the Year (Call on Jesus), and the first African American to win Songwriter of the Year.

She has shared the stage with Ambassadors, Heads of State, Dignitaries, and the President of the United States. She has sung in the Royal Albert Hall, Carnegie Hall, Mega churches and small storefronts. Her travels have lead her throughout the United States as well as overseas to places like Uganda, Australia, Rwanda, Sweden, England, Kenya, and South Africa. Still Ironically enough, Nicole declares that her favorite people of all times are “everyday, ordinary people, because that’s who I am, and that’s who Jesus came to redeem”
Growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio, Nicole was brought up in a family that was not only Christian, but also musical. Her grandfathers on both sides of the family were Pentecostal Preachers. She began singing at the early age of two with her Mother, Father (who sings like Nat King Cole), and her two sisters. At the age of twelve she wrote her first song. It was one of worship that declared: “as long as I live, I’ll Praise your Holy Name!”
