The Thrill of Hope
The Thrill Of Hope introduces Nockels’ take on holiday classics mixed with original songs, including “Song In The Air,” “Wrap This One Up,” Amaryllis” and “Our Christmas Song,” penned originally. The album is steeped in scriptural references from Isaiah, Genesis, Micah and more, along with family memories as Nockels invited other family members to take part in the project as well. Nockels worked with husband Nathan Nockels (Passion, Matt Redman, Laura Story) to create the LP.
I love Christmas music, and this new Christy Nockels Christmas album is a wonderful addition to my Christmas listening. She’s got such a beautiful voice and she brings beauty to old favorites and creates something special with her new songs.
I really love how soothing her music is. I am sure you’ll want to add this one to your Christmas listening this season!
The Thrill Of Hope is available for purchase, HERE.
I recently received a press release detailing the success that the album is experiencing!
