Kissed by Mercy

One of the stars of our UK Tour, Nicki Rogers, has written and recorded a brilliant song exclusively for Mercy Ships! The track, Kissed By Mercy, is inspired by her time on board the Africa Mercy in January, and all profits from sales of the song will go towards helping us continue our work in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Kissed By Mercy is being premiered at 5pm tomorrow – 30 March – on Loretta Andrews’s Drive show on Premier Radio. Tune in to hear the song, and Nicki discussing her time on the ship.

Our creative team has also put together a fantastic video for the track, which you can see below, and you can buy the single through Nicki’s site here. Please tell all of your friends and family about it: the more copies we sell, the more lives we can change!

Nicki says: “I had the amazing privilege of visiting Mercy Ships in Benin. Although I had seen their work via social media, nothing could have prepared me for the experience of seeing their work in person. I came home to the UK with an absolute, steadfast passion to tell as many people as possible about the life-transforming operations I witnessed, and the love and care that was delivered to each and every visitor to the ship by the staff on board.

“One of the ways I can do this is by using my craft as a songwriter to help convey the work of Mercy Ships. It was a big challenge and I was nervous of being able to capture the heartbeat of this amazing charity – but with the help of my good friend and producer Dan Wheeler, we managed to create the single Kissed By Mercy. I'm overwhelmed by the response so far to the song and the video, and hope that as people catch a glimpse of this extraordinary charity, others will have their hearts moved to join with us in supporting the continued work far into the future.”

Nicki’s new Best Of album, which features Kissed By Mercy as the lead track, is available for pre-order on her website.
