Jaci Velasquez | GigSalad Greenroom Interviews

By Destin Harrison

On March 31st, Jaci Velasquez released her first English record in 5 years (and her first Spanish record in 14 years!) Although she hasn’t been as active on the music scene in recent years, Jaci has hardly taken a day off. Prior to the release of her latest album, Trust, Jaci has been busy co-hosting the “Family Friendly Morning Show” with Doug Griffin which airs on over 100 radio stations nationwide, advocating for autism awareness on behalf of her son Zealand, and she even tried her hand at farming.
