Praise and Worship Leader
What: Jaci Velasquez and Nic Gonzales
Gonzales is the lead singer of Christian band Salvador. Velasquez, who now has two children, said motherhood has changed everything in her life. Her sons have prompted her to think about how much she loves them, and, if she loves them so much, she said she wonders "how much more does God love me?" Velasquez met her husband at a birthday party for a mutual friend when she was 19. He later asked her on a date, and they dated on and off until she was 27, when they finally got married. Gonzales had been making music since he was 12 years old. He said his band Salvador started as "a jam band that was based out of a church. The church needed a worship band, and he stepped up to fill in. "Christian music, I think, can mean a lot of things for a lot of different people," he said. Gonzales said Christian music uplifts his soul. "It's a way to become part of a culture that's healthy," he said. Gonzales said he and Velasquez don't often perform together. However, when he travels and sings with her, it is different. "I kind of feel like I'm still at home," he said. Unlike her husband, Velasquez grew up in a musical family. From the time she was 9 years old, she traveled and performed with her parents. Eventually, she became a Christian singer. "For me, whatever is in me is going to come out because it's my artistry," she said.
Praise & Worship Leader firstname.lastname@example.org Born in Austin, TX, Nic spent his early years as a utility musician in church and started leading worship at the age of 15. This was just the start of a musical career and life he never saw coming. Gonzales' parents have faithfully served the church in every position imaginable, so serving his home church (The King of Glory Church, Austin, TX) in a variety of ways was just everyday life for Nic. Nic is the front man of the award winning band Salvador. His music has taken him all over the world and landed him in middle Tennessee where he lives with his wife (Grammy Nominated singer Jaci Velasquez) and his two sons (aged 2 & 3). After 12 years of recording for WORD records (Nashville), Gonzales is poised to release a new record with his bandmates. Fairview is extremely excited to welcome Nic as the new praise and worship leader. Nic has 20 years of experience leading worship in the local church. Nic said of his new opportunity as Worship Leader at Fairview, "I am so happy to be part of a church and worship team that are impacting their community with the love of Jesus Christ.
The program was incredible as they enjoyed the music of Nic Gonzales of Salvador and his wife, Jaci Velasquez; comedy and keynote address by The Skit Guys; and art by Joe Castillo.
Singers Gonzales and Velasquez led the crowd in praise music that brought the audience to their feet as they sang along.
Lead vocalist and songwriter Nic Gonzales has had an eventful year, with his recent marriage to Jaci Velasquez and the birth of their first child, and it's reflected in his songwriting.
To prepare for the new album sessions, Salvador co--founder and lead singer Nic Gonzales cleared out some space in the detached, single-car garage of his 1950s-era home in Franklin, Tenn.
The strategy came with some risk, as the band had been out of the studio for so long that, as Gonzales puts it, "I couldn't even remember what it was like to record." "We wanted to get back to the love we had on that first record," says Gonzales, who co--founded the band with his cousin, bassist Josh Gonzales. The song "Deeper In Love" began as something Nic Gonzales and his wife, singer Jaci Velasquez, had considered for a praise and worship project. "It's a call to each person that to change the world, we all need to start from the inside," Gonzales says. "This record is ten times more funky," Gonzales says. "We taken him to every specialist that we can, and no one can figure it out," Gonzales says. "This record is a celebration of life, and no matter what's going on in your life, even if it's tough, we're going to make it," Gonzales says. What's more, it won't be enough for him if this fuel--injected album, born in a funky garage, moves your body to dance all your troubles away. He's praying it will move your heart and spirit as well, especially if you need a lift.
