"Having been a professional singer for the better part of my adult life, with a fair amount of success, I think I know when I hear an original voice. Ester Nicholson has all the essential qualities of greatness, a unique tone, wonderful phrasing, emotional flexibility and passion. In a nutshell the girlʼs got soul." - Rod Stewart
"The beauty and power of Ester Nicholson's voice arises from a sacred core where she communes with the Spirit of song itself. Listen and feel, for her message and song is a source of healing and inspiration. Her presence as a spiritual practitioner and an artist is a blessing to any community where she speaks and performs." - Michael Beckwith, founder of Agape International Spiritual Center and “teacher” in The Secret.

“Ester Nicholson, wow, I was blown away. As the Oncology Resource Coordinator for Blessing Cancer Center, I attended the afternoon session celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness in October of 2008. I went to this event with some enthusiasm, but little expectation, and then Ester came on stage. She is lovely, down to earth and an amazing artist. She weaved her life story so beautifully and with heartfelt emotion during the hour of her keynote and performance. Looking around the audience, it was very apparent that they were as captivated as I was. I highly recommend her as a motivational speaker and artist for your event.” - Cheryl Hintz, RN BSN OCN Oncology Resource Coordinator Blessing Hospital, Quincy, IL
“I had the distinct pleasure of having Ester Nicholson as my keynote speaker for the annual luncheon/fundraiser for the United Way of Williamson County womenʼs group. We had about 400 in attendance and Ester was not only captivating with her energy and talent but she was also very inspirational in delivering her message. Ester was extremely easy to work with in preparing for the event and made it a priority to make sure that her message was one that would resonate with the audience to whom she was speaking. Her beautiful voice and heartfelt message through her song was a wonderful gift to those in attendance and a rare addition that most event goers donʼt expect.” - Ann Buchanan, President/CEO United Way of Nashville, TN
“Our community was so immensely moved by Esterʼs performance that we continue to be asked about her return. Ms. Nicholson has displayed a high degree of integrity, purpose, and faith. In addition to her excellent musical accomplishments, she has proven her ability to inspire people and reach out to the audience through her motivational talks and personal experience. Ms. Nicholson would be a positive element to any event, and I am happy to give her my wholehearted endorsement.” - Bonnie Kleissle, Administrative Director Blessing Hospital Cancer Program, Quincy, IL
"In the summer of 2009, Ester Nicholson, was our featured guest performing artist at the Jaywalker Lodge annual, Fourth of July Celebration. Ester was terrific as a workshop leader, performer and inspirational speaker. Clients at our treatment center who are now alumni living in the community often remind me of the morning talk where she shared her experience, strength and hope with clients struggling with addiction issues. Ester Nicholson is spiritual authenticity. Those who have met her, to a person, comment on her honesty and the all-embracing love she carries with her for the world and others. We cannot wait until she returns to grace our community with her presence again." - Kim Nuzzo Director, Solutions Program Jaywalker Lodge Carbondale, Colorado
"In 2008, Ester Nicholson served as the featured “storyteller” for Renewal Houseʼs main fundraising event, A Womenʼs Thanksgiving. Renewal House is a non-profit agency whose mission is to foster healing, resiliency and continuing recovery for women struggling with addiction and their children. Esterʼs message and performance fulfilled our expectations and more. She did a beautiful job of combining stories of her personal journey with songs of hope and healing. She literally had the crowd on its feet as she concluded her performance." - Jude White, Executive Director Renewal House, Nashville, TN
"To try and put into words the wonder and magic of Ester Nicholson is a difficult undertaking, but I will do my best. Ester Nicholson totally blew our congregation away with her music, her spirit and her open-heartedness. She is the real thing! She will not only feed the people who come to hear her sing, but she will touch their hearts with her spoken message as well. I highly, without hesitation, recommend her for your event, or your Sunday Services. I am a huge fan of her music myself, and will not miss an opportunity to have her at Unity of Pensacola anytime she can fit us into her growing schedule. You will not soon forget this remarkable woman who is changing lives through her dedication to Spirit. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 850-438-2277. Blessings," - Rev. Jamie Sanders Unity of Pensacola
"The first time I heard Ester Nicholson sing, I cried like a baby. The term Angelic is thrown around so easily, but when it comes to Ester, she truly does have the voice of an angel. This new CD of hers is so much fun to listen to, and has a healing quality rarely found in today's music. I'm also thrilled that she recorded a song I wrote called "What Would Love Do Now". I recommend this beautiful CD to anyone who loves good, soulful music and a powerful, moving vocalist combined." - Brenda Russell, Grammy Nominated Recording Artist & Songwriter
