Milagro (2003)


Milagro (Miracle) is the eighth studio and fourth Spanish language album by Christian/Latina pop singer Jaci Velasquez. It was released by Sony Discos/Sony Music International on April 1, 2003. It was released one week after Jaci released her English album Unspoken. The album was variously produced by Emilio Estefan, Estéfano and Rudy Pérez, among others.


Milagro won a Billboard Latin Music Award in the category "Best Christian Album." Although lyrically considered the most secular of all her works, the album was not as successful as her previous Spanish works due to Sony Discos changing hands in management that same year and a lack of promotion. The lead single

"No Hace Falta Un Hombre" was a hit on Latin radio hitting the Top 5 on the Latin music charts. At that time, Jaci made her acting debut in the 2003 film Chasing Papi. An English version of "No Hace Falta Un Hombre," translated into English as "I Don't Need a Man" appeared on the film's soundtrack. Jaci covers the Gloria Estefan hit "Mi Vida No Es Nada Sin Tí." (English for Gloria's 1980s hit ballad "Can't Stay Away from You")


Milagro peaked at number 9 on the Billboard Latin Pop Albums and number 24 on the Top Latin Albums charts. The album was nominated for a Latin Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Album.
