For more than half her life, multi-platinum-selling, Grammy nominated artist Jaci Velasquez has pursued an entertainer’s dream, recording albums in English and Spanish and performing on stages around the world. Jaci Velasquez grew up in an evangelical church where her parents were singers, evangelists and pastors. Jaci has been singing since she was nine years old. From her debut at age 16, she has leaned full-throttle into her God-given gifts, racking up 16 No. 1 hits, penning three books, acting in seven films, gracing 50 magazine covers and launching a non-profit clothing line.
But the dream has seen its share of soul-searching questions, loves and losses, enough to bring any young woman to her knees. And just as the lyric of her 2006 hit “On My Knees” predicted, she has learned, in laughter or in pain, to survive. Her survival is built on trust. “I may not know what to do or what the future holds,” she says, “but I trust that God does.”
