Katy Nichole—“Hold On”
This summer, KAMB is the place for encouraging new music and programming for you and your family. As you go about this new week, listen for Hold On by Katy Nichole
Katy Nichole has had a busy year! She made her music debut in 2022 with “In Jesus’ Name (God of Possible),” followed by “God is in This Story” with Big Daddy Weave. She was also featured in David Leonard’s “Good Lord.” You may have heard them on KAMB! Her first album, Jesus Changed My Life, was released in February, and includes the single Hold On.
Though only 22, Katy Nichole is a seasoned performer. She started singing in her church choir, and by 14 was writing songs and leading worship. She said: “My earliest memories of feeling the Lord’s presence were when I was singing and when I had a song in my heart.”
While in college, she started to pursue a career in the medical field, but God seemed to be leading her toward music instead: “I think our desires are sometimes different than what God has planned for us. A lot of times, we’ll think it’s going to be a certain way, and then God’s like, ‘Nope, this story is going to look a little different.’”
During struggles with severe scoliosis, depression, and anxiety, music kept Katy encouraged, and reminded her of God’s plan for her life. Through her music, she wants to inspire others to look to God in their struggles: “God’s healed me, so I know He can heal someone else. I’m going to share my story and hope it will encourage others to go and share theirs.”
Hold On was inspired by a time in Katy’s life where she struggled with depression and anxiety. In moments where she wasn’t sure she could keep going, the Lord reminded her that He was not finished with her, and has a beautiful plan for her life. This faith helped her to “hold on” and keep going, and she hopes that her new song helps others facing struggles: “I hope this song can encourage you and remind you that your life matters so, so much and you can hold on because you have a purpose,” she said on her Instagram.

We cannot always see what lies ahead, but this song encourages us that we should place our trust in God, who knows what is in store for each of us. Like a rainbow after rain, this reminder of God’s love for us can brighten life’s storms.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful;
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
