Release of “I Wear Your Crown”

September 2, 2022

My single, “I Wear Your Crown” is now available on all platforms.

This is the song that I almost gave up on.

It also has even more meaning to me than when I wrote the words back in January. I listened to this on an endless loop while I was dealing with my mom being in and out of the hospital and going through so much misery and pain; I felt powerless to help her.

To know that she is now up in heaven wearing her own crown in the presence of Jesus…what a wonderful thing.

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
