Jaci Velasquez

Jaci Velasquez is one of the world's most successful and beloved pop/ballad singers. As proof of her success, there are millions of albums sold, 16 number one radio hits and countless awards.

Velasquez began her career at 14, singing with her family in Houston. With her first Spanish-language album, 'Llegar A Ti' (Sony Discos), the artist, of Mexican and Spanish ancestry, surpassed the expectations of many, becoming a new and imposing presence in Latin pop music. Recorded between Miami and Nashville, Velasquez's second and most recent album in Spanish, 'Mi Corazón' (Sony Discos), was released in May 2001. The album gathers some of the Latin music industry's most important record producers, including Rudy Perez, Desmond Child, Emilio Estefan Jr., and Alejandro Jan.

Launched by her successful albums, Velasquez became the voice and image of the Target stores' publicity campaigns for Hispanic markets.

Last September, Velasquez released her fourth album, the inspirational 'Crystal Clear' (with 'Mi Corazón' producers Rudy Perez and Mark Heimermann), and has already put the finishing touches on an English-language Christmas album that should be out in the fall.

CHASING PAPI is her first film.
