February Hill was born and raised in Atlanta Georgia. Singing since the age of 3, she had the opportunity to participate in several chorus groups, ensembles, praise and worship teams, talent shows, and community events. Having a very colorful childhood, Mrs. Hill wrote about her experiences and put them to music. Although she has had very intimate conversations with God since a very young age, her music did not reflect that until she was a young adult. Here she was able to move past singing about her feelings to singing about the goodness of God.
Her motto is to practice the way you plan to perform. “In every area of life you should give it your all. Be passionate about what you’re about.” The mother of two beautiful young adults, Genesis and Corey Brown, Hill’s greatest challenge and joy has been to coach her children to respond to God’s instruction; and her best coaching strategy has been to lead by example. Minister Hill has several gifts. Some gifts are singing, teaching, and ministering for God’s kingdom. Although she does not yield to the way she is being led every single time, she always has an experience that she is willing to share that just might bring someone to Salvation or bring someone to hope.
She teamed with Jehovah Jamz Records to teach and minister through song, but most of all, she teaches through her lifestyle. Jehovah Jamz Records released their compilation entitled “Revelation, Rhythm, and Rhyme” where she participated to record the songs “He’s So Good” and “God is Love.” Currently collaborating with Jehovah Jamz Records, they have released her first two singles entitled “I Love Your Presence” and “God You Make Me Wanna.” Her debut album will be released in 2021.

THE STORY BEHIND THE MUSIC
Nicoshia Wynn is a singer, songwriter, and speaker who loves to encourage others through leading worship and her unwavering faith in Christ. Nicoshia was inspired to write her new single after her youngest son was born a day shy of 25 weeks, weighing 1 pound and 14 ounces (he was about the size of a half sheet of paper). Her son was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital for more than 100 days, during which he was on a ventilator for 8 weeks (touch and go), had heart surgery, approximately 3 -5 infections (pneumonia and e-coli) and was diagnosed with a lung disease called Bronchopulmnary Dysplasia (BPD).
This experience activated her faith and trust in God. After four long months of Nicoshia’s son being in the NICU, he was discharged from the hospital two weeks prior to Christmas and was called the “miracle baby” by doctors because he beat all of the statistics and odds of being severely premature.
As Nicoshia reflected on this experience and others, she knew that her and her husband’s strength during difficult times was only because of God’s holiness, awesomeness, and their faith! She also knew that no matter what the circumstance was and as painful as it was to see her son in this circumstance, she knew that God still deserved his praise and their worship.
Her new single reflects the essence of God’s goodness and His faithfulness. She hopes that this song will encourage and inspire others to never let their circumstance outrun their worship and love for God.
Nicoshia is the founder of Relentless Academy, a non-profit for youth, arts, and education whose mission is to prepare youth for academic success and resources to build generational wealth for the future. Nicoshia is married and has three beautiful children. She is from Milwaukee, WI, resides in the Twin Cities and is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
