The Husband and Wife Singing duo of Angelo & Veronica have been friends of mine for a long long time; and I would have never imagined reading this about The Lovely Veronica Petrucci – Depression!!!
Here’s her story:
Veronica Petrucci has been most widely recognized as apart of the husband and wife Gospel/R&B/ Latin duo, Angelo and Veronica. Their debut solo album in 1992, “Higher Place” caught the attention of both Gospel music mogul Bobby Jones and legendary hit pop songwriter Diane Warren to create the incomparable sound that is Angelo and Veronica. They went on to record 6 albums with Benson Music Group, Verity Records and Harmony Records, a division of Sony, Inc. Their song “God Knows” was included in legendary Gospel artist, John P. Kee’s “Show Up” video and also made top 15 on the Contemporary Christian Music charts.
Veronica released her first solo Spanish language album “Atrévete a Soñar” in 2009. She has released her latest album “Made It Out Alive,” which includes special guests Fred Hammond, John P. Kee, Shirley Murdock, Canton Jones and the Mississippi Mass Choir. Veronica has also recorded a song called “Hope” for the major motion picture, Unconditional which is a duet with Brian Courtney Wilson produced by Award winning producer (for Marvin Sapp and Israel Houghton), Aaron Lindsey. She will soon be releasing her first book publication similarly titled, “How I Made It Out Alive
Hallels: Thank you so much for your time. I know you have a brand new book coming out which is called “How I Made It Out Alive.” Tell us briefly what’s the book about?
“How I Made It Out Alive” is a book that I started writing in 2010. It is an extension of the album “Made It Out Alive” and based on my testimony told through a devotional style book. It is based on the story of my life of one day 17 years ago that my life spiraled so out of control with fear, anxiety and depression almost causing me to take my own life. I heard voices telling me, “You are not a good wife, not a good mother, not a good Christian and you’d be doing more harm than good by staying in the world”! So I decided that day would be my last day and planned to take my life. Thankfully, my husband and son came home before I carried out this demonically inspired plan.
