Ten Years ago, Joy, my daughter, competed in a national acting, singing and performing competition. She practiced and practiced and had such a great time. (Joy was made for performance since she came out of the womb.) For her solo, she chose a contemporary Christian song called, “I’m Letting Go!” by Francesca Battistelli. Joy practiced the song over and over and over again until even I could sing her cover song for the competition in my sleep. But I loved the song and at the beginning of her career, I became a fan of Francesca.

Fast forward a few years, and a long time friend of mine who is a music producer and song writer emailed me and said, “Francesca B. is reading and enjoying one of your books.”

How fun! And so we became friends through the internet and I kept enjoying even more of her beautiful songs and enjoyed our correspondence. I thought it would be fun to share her and her newest album, Own It, with all of you.

She is a mama of four sweet ones and has such a heart for the Lord and struggles with the same issues of life that we all have. She collaborates with her musician husband, Matt, and they have the privilege of working through these creative projects together. I knew you would enjoy our conversation and so decided to share this podcast with you.

Last year, she was called to fly to Italy to perform with the famous classical singer, Andrea Bocelli. for a Christmas special for TBN. What a fairly tale story and time it was for her.

Francesca has won one Grammy and had four career nominations, two K-LOVE Fan Awards, six Dove Awards (including being named the Gospel Music Association’s Artist of the Year) and seven No. 1 singles!

I hope you will enjoy our chat together. I love her heart and her desire that we all find our roots in Jesus to hold us through all seasons of our lives. Be inspired.
