Music News: Morgan Harper Nichols Releases “Storyteller” Video with Sis Jamie Grace
Written by Christi Given | August 17, 2015
Many of you know of singer Jamie Grace, who is a Christian singer/songwriter and guitar player. She is known for songs like “Beautiful Day,” “Hold Me” and “Do Life Big.” Jamie Grace, as you may remember, has dealt with Tourette syndrome since the age of 11.
She also has a sister named Morgan Harper Nichols, who is an AMAZING singer, songwriter, guitar player and worship artist as well! She has a new video out called “Storyteller” on which she collaborated with her sister Jamie Grace. The track is moving, inspiring and, to be honest…a tearjerker. This song is so precious and I love each person’s testimony in the video of their struggle and how God helped them overcome their problem or how God has used it to help others.
PI Girls, watch “Storyteller” right here:
What is the story behind “Storyteller Sunday,”which is related to her song, “Storyteller” ? The reason she started #StorytellerSunday was because people need to know their story matters and can help someone else. Watch the video below on her purpose behind initiating this inspiring movement of sharing testimonies and also, how to become a storyteller yourself! You MATTER! Yes, your story matters PI girls!! HASHTAG: #STORYTELLERSUNDAY
Morgan started writing and doing music at the age of 14 because of a homework assignment, and in 2007, a song she wrote called “Doesn’t Take the Stars to Shine” landed a placement in the Bratz movie, and she ended up on the Good Day show in Atlanta. According to NewReleaseToday, she also has opened up for musicians like violinist Ken Ford, a former American Idol contestant. Morgan is an impressive young lady as she raised her own funds for college by doing a national tour called Singing for College. Wow, I am impressed! She is so ambitious, such a hard worker and so inspiring! Don’t you agree?
Not only does Morgan Harper Nichols sing and write her own music with her guitar, but she also is a full-time worship leader in Georgia, where she lives. She got married a few years ago to a minister, and they founded a publishing company called Great Name and founded Want Less, GIVE More. Love them! Her husband sounds just as amazing as she is, and together they are reaching people for the Kingdom of God.
Morgan released her self-titled debut album in May 2015, and it was released with Toby Mac’s Gotee Records. She also collaborated with other Christian bands such as All Sons and Daughters, Third Day’s Mac Powell and, of course, the Gotee crew with Toby. I love her new album release—her voice is so raw, powerful and unique! I also love her singles “Morning,” “Where You Are,” “I Can’t Save Myself” (feat. Mac Powell) and “Everyday People.”
I love her song “Lead Me Back.” Listen to it below. Some of my favorite lyrics are:
“Break down every wall that I’ve been building for a kingdom without truth. Tear down every lie that I’ve believed in. Let me come alive in You. For this world will slip away. Lord You will still remain. Lead me back to You….”
—Jesus Freak Hideout.com (“Lead Me Back” lyrics, Morgan Harper Nichols’ new release)
As many of you know, Jamie Grace got her start with Toby and he is even featured in her “Hold Me” video as well. Toby Mac is on fire and released his latest project this year in 2015, called This Is Not a Test.
