Nichole Nordeman to Perform for Bluefield College Homecoming

She’s been nominated for some of contemporary Christian music’s most
coveted awards. She’s produced a variety of hit singles in the industry in
just two short years. She’s Christian music sensation Nichole Nordeman, and
on Friday, October 19, the rising young musician will perform live in
concert on the campus of Bluefield College as part of the school’s
Homecoming 2001 festivities.

Nordeman was a 1999 Dove Award nominee for New Artist of the Year and a
2000 Dove Award nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year. In fact, she left
the contemporary Christian music industry “wide-eyed” with her debut album
of the same name, which included two number one singles. And, with her
follow-up CD, “This Mystery,” she seemed to have all the answers for
Christian music fans. But, as she1ll share with Bluefield College listeners
on October 19, that isn1t the case.

“I don1t have all the answers,” she said. “In fact, merely being brave
enough to question is a path in itself. Questioning is such a prerequisite
to growth. If you1re not asking hard questions, how can you be taking a
journey to the answers.”

And, questions about faith and spirituality are what she1ll ask in her
music and lyrics at Bluefield College. Singing hit singles from both her
CDs, but primarily her newest release, Nordeman will explore the mysteries
of a relationship with God.

“This [new] record for me is more about who God is, as opposed to who I
am,” Nordeman said. “The first record, [“Wide-Eyed,”] was about my struggle
in my relationship with the Lord. This record has become more about the
mysterious, the intangibles, and the question marks about our faith that we
sometimes want to skip.”

During her BC concert, her second on the Virginia Baptist college campus
in just two years, Nordeman will challenge listeners to ask themselves
questions about life, like: “What am I doing and why am I doing it?” She1ll
also challenge listeners to avoid living life on “automatic pilot.”

“It’s human nature to feel bogged down by the routine of life,” Nordeman
said, “but we miss out on some pretty awesome things when we1re on automatic
pilot. Jesus didn1t live life like that.”

Opening up the Nordeman show at Bluefield College will be Forty Days, a
rising young acoustic Christian band promoting its very first label
recording, “Everyday.” Based in Dallas, Texas, Forty Days has quickly built
a huge regional following over the span of the last few years.

The Homecoming concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. on October 19 in
Bluefield College1s Harman Chapel. Tickets at the door will be $12. For $10
advance tickets, please call the BC Office of Student Activities at
276-326-4256 or the BC Office of Public Relations at 276-326-4212.
