    Watch: Jessica Simpson Sings Powerful Rendition of ‘Amazing Grace’ on the Today Show

    During a recent appearance on “Today,” popstar Jessica Simpson opened up about her past struggles with addiction before breaking out into worship on the show. 

    Hoda Kotb interviewed the thirty-nine-year-old mom of three, who opened up about her new memoir, Open Book. Jessica, who grew up in a Christian home, shared how being sexually molested as a young child really impacted her life negatively, but also taught her how to walk with faith. 

    “It’s about walking through fear and about it being okay to be afraid,” Simpson told host Hoda Kotb. “And the other side of fear is what’s so beautiful — that’s when you get the reward.”

    “I had started a spiral,” she told Kotb, referencing her battles with alcohol addiction, marriage problems, and sexual abuse. “And I couldn’t catch up with myself.”

    Eventually, in 2017, Simpson realized she needed to make some changes. 

    “I just realized that I had to surrender,” she explained. “I just want to continue on the path that I’m on and at this point in my life, now I’m strong enough to deal with anything that comes my way because I don’t have something to retreat to that will numb me from actually going through it.”

    At the end of the interview, Simpson sang a song that she said brings her peace, the well-known hymn, “Amazing Grace.”
