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.
You’re the God who stays. You’re the one who runs in my direction When the whole world walks away. You’re the God who stands with wide open arms and you tell me nothing I have ever done can separate my heart from the God who stays.
