Nicole Mullen inspires

Cayman was treated to two truly award worthy performances this past weekend when award-winning gospel artist Nicole C. Mullen performed free at the Cayman Islands Baptist Church Friday and Saturday night prior to Palm Sunday. 

Over 2000 people experienced her performance and Christian message over the two nights.  

“We were blown away by the response from the people of Cayman. We prepared for large crowds as we prayed for God’s blessing and movement among us, and we were not disappointed,” exclaimed Pastor Randy Von Kanel of CI Baptist Church. 

Perhaps best known for her song “Redeemer”, Mullen also performed many other songs that had audiences out of their seats, singing along and swaying, including some from her newly released worship album “Captivated” and other classics for which she has become internationally renowned such as “Call On Jesus” and “On My Knees”. The most touching moment for many was the singing of “Forgiven,” a deeply moving song on the love of God and the grace He offers through Jesus Christ. 

“We are thrilled this was such a success! The goal for this was to reach out to the entire community with the Gospel; the fact that so many came and were touched, not only by Nicole’s performance, but, by her story and her love and message of Christ has truly inspired us as a Church,” he said. 

Since the Cayman Islands Baptist Church only seats about 550 people, the SavNew Park across the road was outfitted with 2 giant screens and the performance was streamed live to audiences seated in bleachers. Families were able to enjoy the show while their children played in the park. 

After each performance, she stayed until every person who wanted an autograph or photo with her were fulfilled. “She was the last one to leave both nights! Truly an amazing woman, she took time with every person, spoke with them and inspired all of us by her true Christian spirit,” said Sharon Williams, organising committee chairperson for the event. 

Food vendors in the park made a real night out for attendees of the event. Vendors for the events included Kingston Hot Jerk, Launch Pad VIP Parents Association, Cayman Cupcakes by PJ’s, Haagen Dazs, Lillian’s Catering and the CI Baptist Youth. Supporters helping to make the event possible were Hopscotch Studios, Lions Productions and Marriott Resort. TCBY offered complimentary yogurt to attendees. “We are so grateful to everyone who helped make this event possible, it was a true community effort and one that all can be proud to have been a part of,” concluded Williams.
