Pop star Jessica Simpson broke out into a beautiful rendition of "Amazing Grace" during a recent interview on "TODAY," noting that the powerful hymn is about "walking through fear."
"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."
Watch Simpson sing "Amazing Grace" at the 7-minute mark:
Simpson has been making headlines for openly revealing some difficult details about her past struggles with sexual abuse, marriage and alcohol.
"I had started a spiral," she told Kotb, noting that, a few years back, she was drinking constantly. "And I couldn't catch up with myself."
Simpson said she quit drinking after a Halloween in which she found herself disconnected and not present for her kids.
It was a wake-up call that led her to become sober and to start working with a therapist.
"I just realized that I had to surrender," she said.
