A hymn for the Most Holy Name of Jesus, “In Jesus’ Name”

J-P Mauro - published on 01/03/23

Katy Nichole's breakout hit from 2022 is the perfect hymn to celebrate the feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus.

Katy Nichole’s breakout hit “In Jesus’ Name” was one of the best faith songs of 2022. The tune went viral when Nichole played just a verse on TikTok and now it’s her flagship song as she has taken her musical vocation to the next level. Not only is it a fantastic hymn of faith, but it is also the perfect song to celebrate the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus.

Driven by Nichole’s rich, belting voice, the song is itself a prayer for intercession, for Jesus to bring peace to the world and each of us. Nichole commands the listeners with a phenomenal performance that hits the listener right in the heart. The song is equal parts jubilant and comforting, and practically demands to be played on repeat.

In an interview with Way Nation, Nichole explained that when she initially recorded the clip of “In Jesus’ Name,” she never really expected it to become as big as it became (the song stood at the top of Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs for the majority of 2022):

“Well, I recorded like a little clip of it right after I wrote it. So a week later I posted it to TikTok.

“The crazy thing was that I’m recording a couple videos as content for the week and specifically ‘In Jesus’ Name’ right before I posted it, I prayed over the video. I just said, ‘God, do with this what you’re going to do.’ I know that this feels like my story, but if it’s only one person who feels like it’s their story, that’s the only person I was supposed to reach.

“And the funny thing is, I left it for like 4 hours and I came back to a million views. I mean, that’s that’s insane. Insane and completely not what my intentions were.”

Katy Nichole’s collection of songs has already grown to include several more faithful singles, as well as collaborations with more established artists. She even released a few holiday songs for Christmas.
