Jana Kramer was honored last week by Safe Horizons -- an organization that empowers victims of domestic violence, child abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking -- with the Empowerment Award.
Jana only recently opened up about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her first husband.
Fourteen years after she escaped her marriage, she finally began to open up about it.
Jana is now on a mission to raise awareness of domestic violence.
In this emotional video, Jana opens up about the struggles she faced trying to leave her abuser.
