Mi Corazón (2001)

Updated: Oct 12, 2023


Mi Corazón (My Heart) is the fifth studio and second Spanish language album by Christian/Latina pop singer Jaci Velasquez, released on May 8, 2001 by Sony Discos/Sony Music International.


The album is produced by various producers that include Rudy Pérez, Mark Heimermann and Emilio Estefan (Gloria Estefan's husband) among others. The lead single "Cómo Se Cura Una Herida (How Can a Wound Be Healed)" topped the Billboard's Hot Latin Songs and Latin Pop Airplay charts. The song is in two versions: the Latin Pop version that starts the album and a Ranchera version that ends the album. The second single "Vida Mía (My Life)" is a duet with the Latin salsa group Son by Four. The album also contains a Spanish language version of the Crystal Clear track "You Don't Miss a Thing" translated as "Pensando en Mí (Thinking About Me)."


Mi Corazón peaked at number 5 on the Latin Pop Albums, number 7 on the Top Latin Albums and number 24 on the Top Christian Albums charts in Billboard magazine. The album was certified Gold and Platinum simultaneously two months after it was released by the Recording Industry Association of America.

In 2002, Mi Corazón won the Dove Award for Spanish Language Album of the Year at the 33rd GMA Dove Awards, was nominated for a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album at the 44th Grammy Awards and was nominated for Favorite Latin Artist at the 2002 American Music Awards.
