When Canadian Singer-Songwriter Nikki English lost her father and largest supporter to cancer in 2001, English struggled with the loss but eventually used his passing as a catalyst to spark her whole hearted pursuit of a career in music. When the same tragedy struck longtime friends of English, her previous life challenges prepared her for inspirational action.
After years of babysitting children from a neighbourhood family, English remained close to the children and family long after babysitting age. After the tragic passing of their father, English attended the funeral where both children gave moving speeches and played songs as an ode to his frequent encouragements to live their dreams. English knew she needed to find a way to reach out to them. That evening she penned her new solo single ‘Follow Your Heart,’ and in no time had it recorded and shared it with the family.
“It was important to me that I do this. Losing my father was painful but it gave me the courage and fire to do what I really wanted to do. I wanted them to know that your loved ones are never really gone. Your life is simply a living tribute to their memory and to truly follow your heart is the best tribute you can give,” says English.
Now with a new single on the horizon, English who has spent the last few years in successful rising Canadian Country Trio Western Avenue and is excited to step away from the group for a short time to release this moving and deeply personal song as a solo artist.
With stirring vocals and uplifting production ‘Follow Your Heart,’ reminds the listener that your loved ones are always close by- in your heart. Released to iTunes presale September 2nd with official release on September 30th, 2014.) https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/follow-your-heart-single/id914091832

(Ephesians 3:14-21) We know who our enemy is, and we may even be dressed for battle (Eph. 6:11). But we don’t feel ready. Our weaknesses seem large and our strength small.
To stand firm in this life, we need the power of our living Lord operating within us. To have God’s divine power released in us requires serious, sustained prayer (v. 18). When we communicate with the Father, His Holy Spirit will give us discernment so that we can recognize truths about spiritual warfare and gain insight into the adversary’s tactics (1 Cor. 2:14). Starting each morning with the Lord lets Him strengthen us to stand steadfastly for Christ, no matter what is in store for us that day.
Prayer is an essential element in our protection against the devil. If we are prayerless—that is, if we fail to seek God’s guidance and neglect to put on His armor by faith every day—then we will be defeated. Our understanding and vision apart from the Lord are too limited and the enemy is too powerful for us to stand alone. However, Romans 8:37 tells us that with God, we will be more than conquerors. He will make us ready if we draw close to Him through prayer, listen to His instructions, and follow through with obedience.
The enemy despises prayers that are offered through faith in Jesus Christ, because he has no defense against them. Persevering prayer strengthens you. It also crushes Satan’s might and sends him running (James 4:7). Drop to your knees in prayer to the Lord and watch what happens.
