Velasquez was recently named the Spokesperson for 2013 Tennessee Walk Now For Autism Speaks after having personal experience with the illness.
She has spoken about the organization to various events, and represented Autism Speaks Tennessee at the Autism Speaks™ Kick-Off Celebration, the Autism Speaks™ Presents Autism Sings! concert, and the Autism Speaks™ Tennessee Walk Now fundraiser in Nashville, Tenn.
"I am honored and humbled to take on the responsibilities of being the spokesperson of 2013," said Velasquez in a press release. "Although the emotions that I am feeling are unfamiliar and uncharted, I find comfort and unwavering support through my faith, family and both old and new friends alike."
Velasquez's five year-old son, Zealand, was diagnosed by the Nashville school system as having autism as he entered Kindergarten. This incident has resulted in her push to research and help spread Autism awareness.
After over 20 years in music, Velasquez has two independent albums, five Spanish, three Christmas, and two compilations. Off those records she has three Platinum albums, three Gold albums, 16 number one singles, six top 10 singles, and seven Dove Awards.
