    Nichole Nordeman grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, in a well-to-do home, playing the piano in church and going to a Christian school. But when her parents divorced when Nichole was 18, things changed dramatically. She felt her family was at the receiving end of pointing fingers from those who hated the sin of divorce so much they couldn't see the desperate needs of a family being ripped apart.

    Still, every Sunday morning, she was there, behind the piano, "stumbling through my spiritual questions." She'd lead the church in worship materials, then sing a few songs she'd written. "That was my only outlet, like reading a journal entry in front of 400 people." Consequently, her albums -- if not everything about her life -- are "bare bones of Christianity, not the shiny, polished Christianity."

    The minister of music at her Colorado church forwarded to Nicole a brochure about a contest sponsored by the Gospel Music Association's Academy of Gospel Music Arts. She almost didn't enter because, as a waitress, the $200 weekend registration fee was too steep. She borrowed the money and sent in her entry. She was selected to compete in the Los Angeles area contest, where the Vice President of Star Song records, John Mays, first noticed her. She won that event and began talking with Star Song about a record deal.
