8 Powerful quotes from Nightbirde that will fill you with hope


Nightbirde | Facebook | Fair Use

Cerith Gardiner - published on 07/20/21

The singer's faith and gratitude in the midst of suffering are an inspiration to us all.

We recently shared the stunning performance of Nightbirde on the reality show America’s Got Talent. And while her song “It’s OK” was beautiful, her contagious joy, faith, and love of life were even more remarkable.

The singer, whose real name is Jane Marczweski, has been given just a 2% chance of surviving her battle with cancer. Yet in her performance and in her writing we see how her faith in God fills her with hope — not necessarily the hope of living a long life, but of developing a deep and everlasting relationship with God.

The depth of her spirituality is refreshing. She talks of her pain, her anger, but most importantly her vision of God permanently by her side. As she shares her inner most thoughts as she battles cancer, she invites each of us to draw closer to our Heavenly Father, to feel joy and gratitude, but most of all, to live in hope.

So if you’re in need of some heavenly reassurance, or want to embrace life and all it has to offer, take some time to reflect on these thoughts from Nightbirde.
