For over 30 years, Phil and Brenda Nicholas have been motivating, inspiring and challenging audiences and congregations throughout the world. Since the early 80's when they started ministering full time, Phil and Brenda have collected a list of impressive credits.
They have toured throughout the U.S., Canada and in Europe. They've made appearances at Carnegie Hall, Constitution Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Spectrum in Philadelphia, The Forum in Los Angeles, Madison Square Garden and The Apollo Theater in New York to name a few.
They have made countless numbers of TV and radio appearances (700 Club, TBN, BET and more). Their recordings have won and been nominated for numerous awards including Grammy, Dove, Excellence and Stellar awards.
Nicholas' albums also have been number one national best sellers in both the United States and in Europe. Ebony magazine best stated it in an article: "The husband and wife gospel duo, who started their own record label (Command Records) in their living room, demonstrate that they are a dynamic force in the gospel music industry for the new millennium..
One of the major reasons for their tremendous success is their material. Nicholas writes and sings songs that truly minister. Their major hit, "God's Woman", has blessed thousands of women encouraging them to be strong women of God. Their songs "A Love Like This", "The Closer I Get To You", "Dedicated" and "I Do" were a string of huge hits which blessed untold numbers of Christian marriages. Their release, Fired Up!, includes the song, "God Will See You Through", uplifts those who are
going through life's toughest trials.
The Nicholas's have not been content with exposing their talent to the world. Through their label Command Records (distributed worldwide by Word Records Inc,) they are responsible for seeing others share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the masses. They recorded such artists as
The CLC Youth Choir, Kenny Smith, Vernessa Mitchell, Rodney Friend and Allen Wiggins on their innovative record label, to name a few.
Phil and Brenda (who are out of the late, renowned Dr. E.V. Hill's church), have a sincere desire to see souls won and the body of Christ edified. "The Lord said, 'If I be lifted up, I'll draw all men unto me' "We have sincerely dedicated our lives to Him and He is doing the rest. All we want to be is a reflection of Christ! "
Married 31 years, their recent release, "The Love CD" is a powerful ministry tool to build and strengthen Christian couples. To commemorate their 25th Wedding Anniversary, they released, Nicholas' Classic Wedding & Love Songs - a compilation of all the love songs they have recorded for the past 25 years. Each June, they also host "The Nicholas Love Cruise" (started in 1998) which is healing, fortifying and saving hundreds of marriages each year.
