Jaci Velasquez to Release First Worship Album, ‘Trust’

CCM artist Jaci Velasquez is set to release Trust, her first studio album in five years and her first for Integrity Music. The project will be released both in English and in a Spanish-language version, Confío, and will release globally on March 31. A Billboard Latin Music Award winner with five Spanish albums to her credit, this marks the first time Velasquez will release an album simultaneously in both languages and is also her first worship album.

Produced by David Leonard and Chris Bevins (Salvador, Phillips Craig & Dean), Trust features new songs penned by Velasquez and her husband Nic Gonzales (lead singer of Salvador) along with songs by Martin Smith, Michael Farren and more. The title-inspired track, “Trust You,” was penned by Velasquez with Aruna Abrams, James Slater and Bobby Hamrick and encapsulates the core message of the new project and also touches on Velasquez’ relationship with her son Zealand, who has autism.

Velasquez has 17 albums, 16 No. 1’s, five Grammy nominations, seven Dove Awards, and multiple gold and platinum records to her credit. Along with promoting her new album, she is currently working on a book, a clothing line that raises support for Autism related causes, and will be featured in two Christian films due out in 2017.
