A song created from an entry in Katy Nichole's prayer journal has gone on to impact millions of people worldwide, and that number continues to grow every day.

Katy Nichole has not only gone viral, now reaching well over 150 million people with the chorus to her debut single “In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” but she has also reached the second-highest position on the iTunes’ overall Top Songs chart while remaining No. 1 on the iTunes Christian & Gospel chart since the song’s release.

"I started Tik Tok in 2020 when quarantine started, and everyone had nothing to do. I kind of got a little momentum going. I posted every week. I made different videos. Some were music-related some of them not. This was just a regular week when I posted this video of a song called God of Possible. I didn't have any expectations for this video. I didn't know what it was going to do," said Katy.

"It was just me sitting at a grand piano playing a song that I had written on one of my writer's trips. I guess it was something that was going to resonate with people. The video kind of just took off." 

Long before TikTok was even a social platform, Katy was singing in her church choir. By 14, she was writing songs and leading worship. Now at 21, she has released her debut single and is preparing to release a full album.

"The inspiration from this song came directly from a prayer journal, my prayer journal," Katy explains. "I talk to God through a journal, and I like to write things down, just so I can remember them, and I can go back and look at answered prayers. One of those answered prayers was that the lyrics were in the journal. I could highlight different parts that I was praying over myself."

Katy Nichole has her own miracle story of healing. 

Prior to writing “ In Jesus Name (God of Possible),” Katy was diagnosed with scoliosis and underwent surgery to straighten her spine. This led to persistent post-surgery pain that sent her into a bedridden mental and emotional spiral. Three years later, Katy went back in for an operation to remove the metal rods and screws that had been placed in her back.

“I go into the second surgery, and I come out of it, and the smoke cloud of depression was gone. I encountered the Lord in that moment,” Katy remembers. “When I got my X-rays after surgery, my spine was actually straighter than when the rods had been in it. So when I say that God can do miracles, I mean it, because I’ve seen it.”

Serving as both an ambassador for the Shriners Hospitals for Children® and as a volunteer for Musicians On Call, her healing has also emboldened her to be an advocate for others facing health challenges. It’s further given her a new direction for her music—and her life.

“There’s no story that doesn’t matter to God. Every story was written by Him, and He’s the greatest author of all time,” says Katy. “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.”

Today on Connections, Katy shares the story behind her song. She also shares what it's been like to go viral and hear her song on the radio for the first time.
