Jaci Velasquez breaks her silence about recent divorce.
LESS THAN two years after her 2003 wedding made the news, Christian/Latin music superstar Jaci Velasquez's marriage has ended in divorce. Velasquez and Indiana native Darren Potuck were married on 16th August, 2003, in Franklin, Tennessee. Jaci told Christian Music Today, "When my husband and I started out as newlyweds, we were like all newlyweds, wanting that dream marriage. Somehow, things took a turn and we have ended up in divorce." The 25-year-old singer continued, "I sought counselling, but the painful truth is that our marriage didn't work out. I've had such a difficult time with this. My heart hurt so badly that I felt like I wanted to crawl under a rock and just die. I can't say that I have ever felt such pain before. My heart literally felt like it was breaking in half."
Velasquez went on to talk about the song "Lay It Down" from her latest
album 'Beauty Has Grace', released by Word Records. The lyrics of that
song contain the lines: "All of my hopes and my dreams and my best
laid plans/Are slowly slipping through my folded hands." Commented the
singer, "I am learning how to live out the words of 'Lay It Down'
daily and experiencing God's love, grace and mercy like never before.
My God is so awesome, I can feel him lift me up every time I feel like
it's all too much for me."
