Jaci Velasquez signs to Inpop Records
Published 22 August 2011
Jaci Velasquez has just signed up to the Inpop records, the musical home of Newsboys, Superchick and other popular Christian artists.
Her debut album with the label, Diamond, has been slated for release on February 7, 2012.
With four million album sales worldwide, three RIAA certified platinum and three gold records, and seven GMA Dove Awards, it's little wonder Inpop are excited about signing Jaci.
"I'm personally and professionally thrilled to welcome Jaci to our Inpop family," states Andrew Patton, GM/VP, Inpop Records.
"I've had the pleasure of working with Jaci and her team for more than a decade, and to reunite and bring her new music to the world is an immense honour.
"Jaci has been and continues to be the driving positive force in the latin music community, and her reach in and through the CCM world is also long and sustaining.
"Having the ability to link arms with any artist with such a broad foundational platform is a win-win out of the box for us."
Jaci is also excited to be with Inpop.
She says: "There are many new, creative, and talented faces in the Inpop family that I very much look forward to working alongside.
"This is in addition to a number of familiar faces that I have worked well with in the past, so it's like a family reunion, but better! The way I look at it, it's the best of both worlds."
Fans will also be glad to hear from Jaci again after taking a few years out of her career to marry and have two kids with fellow musician Nic Gonzales, of the hit band Salvador.
Not only is she working on the next album release, but she is also writing a new book and starring in two new films, "The Encounter" and "Jerusalem Countdown", both due out this year.
