One of the biggest upcoming Hip Hop artists is Nicky Gracious. Nicky is a gifted lyricist and rapper with a troubled past including drugs and incarceration. His story is one of pitfall after pitfall until Jesus took hold of his life. Nicky's story created several holes and brokenness in him. Jesus had other plans! Today Nicky is touring, writing, and creating songs and doing anything that glorifies the name of Jesus. His music is transparent, vulnerable, and honest -- a gift from his loving creator and he would be the first to tell you.
Nicky always had big dreams, but instead listened to the disparaging voices in his head that convinced him those dreams were impossible. When he was at his darkest moment of despair and frustration, Jesus radically transformed him and gave him a purpose. God showed him that He had plans for him in the music industry.
Now Nicky's honest and in-your-face approach to sharing the gospel through music is transforming the lives of thousands of people. He is proud and unashamed of his relationship with Jesus and how that transforming relationship saved his life and made him a new creation!
Nicky Gracious is currently touring the country with Rip. They are in Madison, Wisconsin for one night -- October 12th at Door Creek North. Doors open at 6pm and it is going to be a great night!
