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.
I was dead in my transgressions, wandering in sin. I went searching for redemption down a road that had no end. I was walking through the fire, I was living on the run. With my flesh lost in desire, I was drowning in the flood. But God, rich in mercy, You came to save me. Now I’m alive.
