Francesca Battistelli is a Grammy Award winning musician from New York City. Raised by parents immersed in the arts and Broadway, she developed a love of music, theatre, and performance at a young age. But instead of using these talents for applause and accolades, Francesca prefers to point people to something beyond herself –towards hope in Christ. Her soulful piano-pop sound resembles a blend of her music interests – jazz, rock, gospel and R&B – woven beautifully together with themes of trust and risk-taking. In a noisy world filled with sounds and images, we cry out for an authentic voice–one who is not afraid to speak truth and purpose to a generation.
As we aim to faithfully walk with Christ, there will be times when we are tempted to compromise what we believe and follow the waves of the culture instead.
