At the International Christian Retail Show (ICRS) 2013 in St. Louis, Missouri, Tom Janicik connected with Joey Nicholson, who is an author and accomplished musician from Gainesville, Georgia, and is also a minister, worship leader, and award-winning songwriter whose music is touching people throughout the world. Within a week of returning home to Georgia, Joey contacted Tom to let him know that he had written, arranged and recorded the first song from Tom’s book. Since then Joey and Tom have developed 16 songs, 4 songs from each of the 4 chapters in Tom’s book.
Joey and Tom will be attending ICRS in Atlanta on June 22 – 25, 2014 where they will release their new worship album titled, “Your Gift of Grace” ($14.99, CD, published by EveryShore Publishing and Gift of Hope Publishing, ShoreLine Records).
Thoughts from Joey Nicholson, Artist and Producer, on Your Gift of Grace
“Tom’s words and thoughts from his book Your Gift of Grace are very deep and meaningful, and yet, challenging for us as believers to reach out to others with compassion. The common theme of grace is woven throughout this album, and Tom’s tender heart is made transparent in songs such as ‘Whiter than Snow’ and ‘Recreated’.
When writing and even recording songs like ‘Just for You’ and ‘These Hands’, I really felt a strong desire to see others come to salvation in Jesus. I believe this Spirit-led process of songwriting collaboration seemed to come so easy because I agree with Tom’s words and that we both just want others to experience the healing, salvation, and total freedom that we have found in Christ.”
