“For anyone who has ever struggled to openly share the hope of Jesus with a friend, Nichole offers “What If,” from 2005’s Brave. “I wrote ‘What If’ for a friend of mine who isn’t a Christian,” she explains. “I think it’s so important to have people in our lives who don’t speak our same faith language. And to dialogue about that without feeling the pressure to say the right thing, to point to the right book or to argue someone into the kingdom of God. At the end of the day, it has to be about love.”

Here’s Prince’s version
Jamie Grace has come a long way since she was discovered through YouTube videos by Christian music veteran TobyMac back in 2010. Her life has always seemed to revolve around music, growing up playing instruments and singing both in church and at home with her older sister, Morgan. She’s only 24, but in that span she has already racked up several big hit songs (You Lead, Hold Me, and Beautiful Day) plus numerous awards and nominations (Grammy’s & Dove Awards).
But don’t be deceived by her youth. Being in front of audiences from a young age has helped her gain a unique perspective on life and relationships. One thing she’s learned is how sharing your personal struggles can heal, not only yourself, but others who may be experiencing the same thing. She’s been open about being diagnosed with Tourette syndrome when she was only 11, and how God has helped her overcome this as a singer.
She now has her Bachelor’s degree in children’s ministry, which she has used to help speak wisdom and love to kids and young adults through her Vlog (video blog) The Jamie Grace Show. Check out one of her recent videos about how to date & still have friends:
