Nicky and Friends 2
Tired of cheaply produced, musically boring Children's CDs? 'Nicky and Friends Vol.2' is a fun, inspiring CD that will encourage your kids that they can do anything with God's help. Using A-list Nashville musicians and a reach-for-the-sky script, 'Nicky and Friends' is a song-filled CD your kids will want to hear over and over again. And best of all, because all of the instrumental soundtracks are included, your kids can sing along and perform their favorites at their church or school. Included is Terry & Barbi Franklin's Dove Award winning song, 'Out Of His Great Love.' 'Nicky' is a creation of ventriloquist Barbi Franklin. This little doll has been all over the world touching kids in dozens of countries. Terry & Barbi Franklin are singers, songwriters, and speakers that have ministered full-time for over 23 years as a duo, focusing on their theme: "Inspiring Love in the Home & Revival in the Church." Through Family Concerts and Marriage Seminars nation-wide, as well as in 34 foreign countries, they are reaching countless marriages and families with the hope and love of Jesus. They founded Heart for the World, Inc., a missions organization which focuses on evangelism as well as impacting marriages and families world-wide. Through marriage seminars, evangelism crusades, and concert ministries around the globe, the Franklins have seen many thousands of souls saved, churches planted, and lives changed by their message of hope and restoration. Through the years, they have worked with many well-known Christian leaders and artists such as Billy Graham, Jim Cymbala and The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, Focus on the Family, Coach Bill McCartney and Promise Keepers, Adrian Rogers, Jack Hayford, Steve & Annie Chapman, Bill & Gloria Gaither, David Jeremiah, Kay Arthur, Gary Smalley, Josh McDowell, Don Wildmon and The American Association, and many others. As songwriters, they have had noteworthy success - artists across a wide range, from Glen Campbell to The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir have recorded their songs - and they have won Dove Awards and award nominations - but more important to them are the many changed lives through healed marriages, families and churches as God has used them around the world. Terry & Barbi have a passion to see God bring Renewed Spiritual Hunger and Awakening to the church...starting inside our homes...and spreading to the whole Family of God. They bring their sons, Tyler and Travis, with them whenever they are available (both are now college students). Using Terry's skill at the keyboard and Barbi's talent on violin, (Tyler and Travis play guitar and drums when along), they lead listeners into a worship experience that touches hearts through their musical and family harmony. During seminars and speaking events, their music is an added bonus to every event. In their family concerts, Barbi sometimes includes a short segment with "Nicky" especially for the children. This character is loved by young and old alike and is especially effective during their evangelism meetings overseas. Both Terry & Barbi have traveled in music ministry since they were very young. After over 23 years of ministry together, they continue to encourage strong family values, unity, and renewed hunger for God.
