During the intimate hour-long discussion, the beloved singer, songwriter and teen idol opens up about her successful career, overcoming a disfiguring chemical peel in 2008 and how her faith helped her heal.
Speaking about the botched facial treatment, Tucker said, “I wanted to get a chemical peel on my face. It’s a normal [procedure], it’s not even a hospital stay. They caught the laser on fire with the oxygen… the only thing I remember hearing is, ‘Get the ambulance, we’ve got a fire.’ [I had] second and third-degree burns from here down on my face, and then the flames went up into my nose and down into my lungs… It was the worst thing… I was just saying, ‘God, why me?’”
Currently, Tucker is preparing for the launch of a new album while criss-crossing the country with her instantly recognizable vocal flare and legendary repertoire that includes “Delta Dawn,” “Some Kind of Trouble,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “Love Me Like You Used To” and many more.
