Item description for Llegar a Ti by Jaci Velasquez...
On this energizing collection of Spanish-language devotional songs, Texan singer Jaci Velsquez uses her deeply emotional, octave-stretching voice to spread the word to a whole new audience. About half the songs are translations of existing hits, from "God So Loved" to "On My Knees," "Little Voice Inside," and "I Promise," while the rest are new songs written in Spanish. The songs are fabulous, and they mirror the eclecticism of contemporary Hispanic sounds--from the amped-up Tejano surefire hit "Con Tu Amor," which will please fans of Selena, to the many lush ballads and the freestyle-inspired dance-floor rocker "Junto a Mi." --Mike McGonigal

Jaci Velasquez---her CD is neat! Nov 1, 2006
Whether you speak Spanish or not, this is a great CD. The first song has a very strong latin vibe to it, and is a song you can sing in front of the mirror of (really!). I love the song Llegar a Ti, and Junto Mi. I like all of the songs, because they're all so smooth and rich. It's also nice to know you're not swearing in Spanish when you sing along! I really enjoyed this CD, and I'm sure you will too.
this album is gold!!! Jul 23, 2005
This is mos DEfinetly Jaci's best album, str8 up,,i dunt think she has come up wit anyhting matching up to this, "Mi corazon" her next album after this one is almost as close, but " LLegar A Ti" is jus top, theres sumthn unique about this album,,from the opening song,,to the grammy winning song "llegar a ti" to the spanish version "Un lugar Celestial", the guitar is awsome in this song, to de "creer en ti"..wich i think is one of the best in the album,,"Solo tu" is also a very tuching song,, "Junto a ti" makes u wanna jump wit its dancestyle club beat..and all the way through till "Al mundo Dios amo"..i think this the only Jaci album that ive listened all the way through, cuz all the songs r good,, especially "llegar a ti" i dun think they aint anybody out there, not even secular that can top this today..im still waitin on it,, but Jaci was at the top of the game in this album..im still waitinfor her to come out wit sumthing like this or ta least a remix o sumthn outta this album wich i think would be great...also look at her album "Mi corazon" its not as great as this one but youll find the fist song on that album "Como se cura una herida" (wich also won a grammy) to be just as good as any song in " Llegar a ti"...well i hope this review helped.. now i gota bounceeeee
Jaci at her Best Apr 2, 2004
This album kicks off to a great start with "Con Tu Amor", an awesome song with a Latin feel. The high-quality songs continue with the soulful "Llegar a Ti" (the title track and, in my opinion, the best song on the album), translations of her English songs ("Un Lugar Celestial", "Al Mundo Dios Amo", "Como una Flor", etc.), and great new songs like "Junto a Mi" and "Solo Tu". This is definitely Jaci at her best--Milagro, while more modern and popular, just doesn't live up to the standard she set in Llegar a Ti. I would recommend this album even if you don't speak Spanish. (Actually, it's a good way to learn it!)
Latin Music With A Meaningful Twist: Jaci Velasquez! Oct 3, 2002
I have always been a fan of Latin music, well, certain artists like Selena, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, Jon Secada, and Gloria Estefan. However, none of them (no offense) can match up to the versatility and voice of Jaci Velasquez. Although LLEGAR A TI fits into the Latin genre, because of some of the music, it has a more meaningful twist than the rest of the above. Jaci proves to herself and all her loved ones that she has a purpose in doing in what she does. That purpose is to reach out to believers and unbelievers alike through witnessing for Christ, by music.
Her voice is outstanding on this CD! My all-time favorite song of hers is on it: the title track! The Spanish versions of "Un Lugar Celestial (A Heavenly Place)", "Look At What Love Has Done", "God So Loved", "On My Knees", "Flower In The Rain", and "Little Voice Inside" are just as beautiful as the English versions. The originals are living proof that Jaci loves God, and she loves doing music!
I pray that Jaci will continue to reach out to the Latin community with this "new" kind of Latin music in a very positive way, with both LLEGAR A TI and MI CORAZON! God bless you, sister Jaci!
