Nicole C. Mullen
Nicole C. Mullen embraces a rainbow of musical colors from straight inspirational CCM to the smoothest redemptive R&B on the market. She's become her own force alongside such high-wattage contemporaries as Yolanda Adams and Ce Ce Winans, expressing herself in varied canvases: sweeping orchestral ballads, funky double-dutch pop rhythms, acoustic studio jazz and even incorporating choirs of African children, both in-studio and live on stage on her unity-themed hit "Freedom." She puts the same thorough effort and high energy into all her work, which, when combined with her unquenchable natural groove, has churned out stellar single after stellar single. She's secured countless awards (Doves, Grammys, GMA's "Artist of the Year," SESAC's "Songwriter of the Year") but her hits like "Redeemer," "On My Knees," or "When I Call on Jesus," have gone beyond just mere chart-burners, to become standout industry models. Behind the music and the ministry is a powerhouse personality, an unstoppable voice, a wife and mother, and a general contagious force for good.
