Aged 32, Ni-Cola is described as one of the North West’s freshest talents to be birthed from the city of Manchester, England. With an electric stage presence, the singer/songwriter fuses, pop, Gospel, funky house, Jazz and soul with her rich alto signature sound. Ni-Cola’s heart is evident throughout her music, she is able to share her personal stories of love, compassion, and trials, in a 21st century Mancunian way with a few jokes in the midst. Ni-Cola has ministered up and down the country and internationally at countless events; from high schools, festivals, concerts, nightclubs, outreaches, Television, radio and conferences. Ni-Cola needs no introduction, she can engage a small intimate crowd or command an auditorium full of people to let go and have a good time in the presence of God.
Ni-Cola won the “Best Newcomer” award at the Oasis Awards 2006. In 2010 Ni-Cola received a nomination for Best female at the GMA awards.
Her Debut Album” My Passion His Heart” was released by independent record label 1nC Promotions in December 2007, this received great reviews from both secular and Christian media. In 2010 Ni-Cola’s embarked on a 20 date US college in Ohio and Alabama. On Ni-Cola’s return to the UK, she successfully headlined her own UK Tour showcasing her sophomore album “Love Out Loud which presented another accolade to the “Lil lady with the big voice”. Receiving the awesome news that she had been nominated for the prestigious MOBO award for “Best Gospel” Act, alongside the likes of Emile Sande, Labrinth, Plan B, and Rita Ora, she is now flying her MOBO flag. 2014's bar has been set very high for the Manchester born singer, who is also the first cousin of X factor finalist Misha B. Having just returned from performing at the Barbados Gospel fest alongside, Tye Tribbett, Damita Haddon, and Hezekiah Walker, she is fresh, full of energy and ready to set the stage alight with her fire. Ni-Cola is now the proud CEO of Manchester Community Spirit, (an arts charity dedicated to reaching out to disadvantaged young people across Manchester) using the creative and performing arts. We’re in a new year, a new season and I’m ready says Ni-Cola, to go back into the booth and make some more great music, working with some amazing stars. There are some projects that I have been supporting in 2013 that will be released this year, and so expect some surprises.
Make sure you don’t miss out on hosting her in the new year!
