ARTIST OF THE DAY
Francesca Battistelli

At only six years old, Francesca was an aspiring actress. She longed to be on Broadway - singing and dancing and acting. Francesca’s passion for life on the stage wasn't all that surprising, given her mom and dad’s extensive theater background. Her parents met when her dad was the assistant conductor for the national tour of “The King and I,” while her mom played Anna, the show's female lead opposite Yul Brynner.

When Francesca was 15, she put her skills to use in an all-girl pop group out of Orlando, just like NSync! But when that gig eventually ended, Francesca says she was thankful for an opportunity to clear her head. “Not long after, I recharged my batteries by going to this youth ministry that I absolutely loved,” Francesca shares. “It was there where the Lord really captured my heart for Christian music. I started playing guitar and really longed to bring something authentic to the scene that even non-Christians could listen to.”

From there, it’s Christian music History! Francesca released her debut My Paper Heart to rave critical reviews and a slew of #1 hits. Her debut album went on to become the first Gold record (Over 500,000 copies sold) debut of a Christian artist in a decade! Now four albums into her career (including a stellar Christmas record), Francesca Battistelli is a Christian radio mainstay, award winner and all around awesome person!
