In 2002, while Nick was in Beauty and the Beast, he and his father were approached by producers of a Broadway charity album called Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure.  They asked Nicholas to record a song for the album's 4th volume. The Jonas' accepted the offer and decided to write a song for the album, instead of singing a traditional Christmas song.  On the car ride home, Nick already had an idea for the song, which later turned into his first recording of Joy To The World (A Christmas Prayer)

It was Nick's very first studio recording. The song featured Nicholas as a soloist, and Mr. Jonas and two ensemble members of Beauty and the Beast as background vocalists.

The entire album was recorded on 15th, 16th, and 17th of September, 2002 and the CD was sold the following holiday season.

In 2003, while Nicholas was in The Sound of Music, he recorded a new demo of Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer), after someone who worked for a record company heard the first version. This new version was made into a single and given out at the Jonas's church as well as after shows. In November, INO received a copy of this demo and with short notice, the song was in heavy rotation on the radio and Nick had a recording contract.This was also what he sang on his first televised performance, in the same Christmas season.

In 2004, after signing a record deal with Daylight/INO records, Nick began recording his solo album. The album featured 11 full-length songs, 8 of which were written by Nick in collaboration with family members and professional song writers. The album was fully mastered and a promo was sent to various radio stations and critics for review. The album was first set to be released in November 23 of 2004, but was then pushed back to January 25, 2005. Eventually it received a very limited release, December 16, 2004, it seems, but was taken off the market very quickly. Soon after, Steve Greenburg of Columbia records heard the album and liked Nick's voice, as well as the idea of having Nick and his brothers as a music group, and thus the band known as Jonas Brothers was born! Although back then, they were called the Sons of Jonas.

Nicholas Jonas. This is the REAL one. If you ever see a different one (ex. the ones for sale on amazon, ebay..), BEWARE. Those are FAKE.

Around the time Nick's album was supposed to be released, one of his songs were featured in Darcy's Wild Life soundtrack, a kids show featuring Sara Paxton as Darcy. It originally aired in 2004-2005.

The CD was released on May 17, 2005 and is available on ebay.


Now during the Jonas Brothers early years, another CD featuring one of Nick's songs was released. During the solo days, Nicholas was signed with INO records, a Christian company, which had released other compilations before.

Nick's song, Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer), was a bonus track in the Christmas album. Released on October 3, 2006.
