This picture was taken five years ago after “I Am Broken” premiered at the Tulip Festival Concert at Bethany Covenant Church.

It was a surreal night.

Instead of holding all my trauma inside and continuing to keep it all a secret, I put myself out there big-time.

Here’s the thing. I’m not the only one with trauma. Or even secrets.

The amount of people that cried that night? It was overwhelming.

What is even more overwhelming to me is how God has opened one door after another to allow me to record not one, not two, but twelve more songs since then.

Today, I just booked another ticket to go to Nashville. Coincidence? I think not.

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.
