Francesca Battistelli is a Christian musician. She has known from a very early age what she wanted to do. When she was six she saw “The Secret Garden” on Broadway and knew she loved music and theater. Growing up she was in dance classes and musical theater training. Then when she was 15 she was in an all-girl mainstream pop group in Orlando, where they got to travel and perform in places like the Hard Rock Live and House of Blues. After this she moved to Nashville where she wrot
e her first single “I’m Letting Go.” The song reached number 10 on Christian CHR charts and when her album “My Paper Heart” debuted it was number 1 on iTunes.
I feel that Francesca is worth sharing because she has an amazing ability to write songs that can reach many people. Even though she is a Christian artist her songs are meant to be for anyone, Christian or not. I also admire her for going after her dreams. Since she was little she has wanted to be in music and know she has accomplished so much. She has won the Dove Award for “Artist of the Year” and “Female Vocalist of the Year” for both 2010 and 2011. Her music has also been in shows such as The Biggest Loser, Jon & Kate Plus 8, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, So You Think You Can Dance, and more tv show
s and movies.
