Nicholas (Nick) Neel, born 23 September 1997, is the son of Doug and Michelle Neel. He is an 18-year-old singer and songwriter originally from Riverton, Utah. He is also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His favorite quote comes from the LDS scriptures found in Doctrine and Covenants 18:10, “Remember the worth of souls is great in the sight of God.”
Cdbaby.com describes his music as “a cross between Pop, R&B, and Religious, with an Acoustic flare.” His style of music compares to that of David Archuleta, One Direction, and Colton Dixon.
Nick has always loved singing and has been actively engaged in the music world since a young age, and intends to do so for the rest of his life. In the “About” section of his Facebook page, Nick comments, “I enjoy hanging out with friends whether at church, at scouts, or at choir. Yup, that’s right! I sing. It’s one of my passions. I hope someday I can become a famous pop star.” He has performed for and alongside several well-known artists such as David Archuleta, Janice Kapp Perry, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The One Voice Children’s Choir, Jessy Funk, Alex Boyé, Kurt Bestor, Vocal point, Kevin Olusola, and The Osmonds.
He has co-written several songs for the Especially for Youth (EFY) program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He co-wrote and sang the song “This Life” featured on the 2015 EFY album, and the song “Trust Him” on the 2014 EFY album.
“This Life” is about living up to our potential and not wasting life on trivial pursuits.
It’s a reminder I needed. For a long time, I found ways to do the least amount of work for the greatest amount of “reward” in the moment, but in the long run, I was really hurting myself and limiting the chances I could have.
Music moves me more than anything, so I decided to write this song to help me with my own problems and hopefully help others with the same problems because, like the song says, “Life is just a matter of time.”
He continues, “Regardless of your talents or abilities, whatever you have or can do is exactly what you need to bring people unto Christ and fulfill the mission that only you can do. If you take the time to cultivate these skills and let them grow, you will be able to use them to help Heavenly Father’s kingdom grow.”
Nick has done many recordings and has had the opportunity to work with people and for organizations such as Glenn Beck, Deseret Book, Jenny Phillips, Tyler Castleton, Janice Kapp Perry, Aaron Edson, Two Little Hands Production, Lex de Azevedo, and David Osmond. He has also performed at prominent locations including the LDS Conference Center, Radio City Music Hall, The Salt Palace, and Salt Lake Capital Theater. He recently starred in the 2016 original musical “The Prodigal Son” by Andres Paredes at the Conference Center Theater in Salt Lake City, Utah from 12-14 May 2016. He is also a first place winner in the Priddis Singing Competition.
