Meet the Artist

Francesca Battistelli

Dove Award Winning Female Vocalist of the Year, Francesca Battistelli began her musical journey at a very young age.

When she was just six-years-old, the future singer/songwriter discovered an inborn desire to be a performer. It was after seeing a presentation of The Secret Garden on Broadway, with her parents that Battistelli set her sites on the stage.>Both of Battistelli's parents come from the theater, so her decision was a surprise to no one. Musical theater training and dance lessons helped the singer form a stone solid work-ethic.

At the age of fifteen, she spent time in the trenches with Orlando-based pop group Bella. After the group disbanded, Battistelli attended a youth ministry where she says God moved her in the direction of Christian pop music. She began learning how to play the guitar and set out on a mission to write, in her own words, "soulful pop music that someone (plays) in the morning and says, 'now I can start my day, I feel encouraged'."

Battistelli released an independent album, Just a Breath, in 2004. An EP titled I'm Letting Go followed in early 2008. Her major-label debut, My Paper Heart, arrived later that same year on Fervent Records. The disc produced the hits "I'm Letting Go," and "Free to Be Me," a number one single.

The heart of Francesca Battistelli is a lot of things ... colorful, vibrant, alive and unrestrained. While it may tear easily like paper, it has a resilience that is much stronger than any paper you'll ever find. Crafted by the Master himself, Francesca Battistelli's heart is as beautiful as her voice and that is something extraordinary and rare.

4 stars By Timothy Yap, Nov 08 2017
"Greatest hits" collections are an interesting genre in themselves.  They allow us to map the artistic evolution of a singer especially when the songs are arranged in a chronological order. This is certainly true of Francesca Battistelli's latest package.  "Greatest Hits: the first ten years" puts us in the front seat as we witness how Battistelli starts to evolve slowly but surely from being a consummate CCM pop artist to become more of a contemporary worship artist.  This CD is thus a retrospective journey where 12 songs are cherry picked from each of Battistelli's three regular albums.  On top of that, one song has been included from her Christmas effort and for the sake of diehard fans two new songs are tagged towards the end of the record.  All the songs that have found their way to the disc (save for the Yuletide track and the new songs) have had been big hits for Battistelli including six No. 1 radio hits, three top 5 hits, three top 10's.

Let's be honest: Battistelli's best works are in her first two albums.  Here she really stands head and shoulders above her peers.  Her knack for songs that have signature melodies with lyrics that allow her protagonists to bring engaging perspectives on glorious themes are just sublime.
