  • I totally love some of these songs from Francesca Battistelli. For some reason I'm finding some of the new Christian acoustic songs quite a bit more heartfelt in showing the heart and feeling of the artists in Christian music.
    More on her from her website.

    "“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”—E.M. Forester So, what do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a question that takes many people years and years of trial and error and self-discovery to figure out. But for singer/songwriter Francesca Battistelli, her mind was made up when she was only six years old. After seeing “The Secret Garden” on Broadway with her parents, the decision was ultimately a no-brainer. “There was just something about live theater—especially musical theater—that has always resonated with me,” Francesca says. “So I thought that was it. I was going to be Mary Lennox in ‘The Secret Garden’.” Of course for anyone who knew her family, Francesca’s passion for life on the stage wasn’t all that surprising, given her mom and dad’s extensive theater background. In fact, they 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.
