Francesca

‘Cause I got a couple dents in my fender, Got a couple rips in my jeans ... sing along if you know the rest!  Francesca Battistelli stopped by the K-LOVE Morning Show today - you know, from her song "Free to Be Me".  A few things we learned:

She's getting married in 35 days!  When not out performing, her time is consumed with planning for her wedding.

A fender-bender was the inspiration for the memorable lyrics of "Free to Be Me".  She backed into a lawyer's car.  Driving away, she began singing to herself "got a couple dents in my fender, got a couple rips in my jeans".  See the pic below for evidence of ripped jeans.  A check of her rental car (not pictured) showed no dents.

Her parents have a background in theater. In fact, they met when her dad was the assistant conductor for the national tour of “The King and I,” while her mom played the show's female lead opposite Yul Brynner.

Jonny Diaz

Jonny Diaz (pronounced Die-Az, not Dee-Az) stopped by the show on Friday and played a few songs live in the K-LOVE studio, including his hit song "More Beautiful You".  We've heard from so many people - especially women - who say the lyrics to that song really resonate with them.  

 

More Beautiful You

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way 
But her hair isn’t straight her body isn’t fake 
And she’s always felt overweight

Well little girl fourteen I wish that you could see 
That beauty is within your heart 
And you were made with such care your skin your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

There could never be a more beautiful you 
Don’t buy the lies disguises and hoops they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do 
So there could never be a more beautiful you

Little girl twenty-one the things that you’ve already done
Anything to get ahead 
And you say you’ve got a man but he’s got another plan 
Only wants what you will do instead

Well little girl twenty-one you never thought that this would come 
You starve yourself to play the part 
But I can promise you there’s a man whose love is true
And he’ll treat you like the jewel you are

So turn around you’re not too far 
To back away be who you are
To change your path go another way
It’s not too late you can be saved
If you feel depressed with past regrets
The shameful nights hope to forget
Can disappear they can all be washed away
By the one who’s strong can right your wrongs
Can rid your fears dry all your tears
And change the way you look at this big world
He will take your dark distorted view
And with His light He will show you truth 
And again you’ll see through the eyes of a little girl

Chris and Conrad on July 1st

Lisa Williams, Chris and Conrad, and Eric Allen.

 

This morning, Chris and Conrad sang two songs from their CD Chris and Conrad.  They did a live version of "Lead Me to the Cross" and "You're the One".  We love the passion they have when they sing.

Okay, and they're funny.  They lived up to their reputation.  We laughed about reverse bangs, the pre-amble to the constitution, Smeagle, Conrad's many jobs, Kiss and Conrad, and lots more:)

We're working on editing some video from their visit.  We kinda went improv nuts after the show and Chris played a voice coach professor trying to help us become better djs.  Conrad was his helpful assistant.  THEN, Chris became Harry Caray and interviewed us on his fake radio show.  And Conrad was again his helpful assistant.  As soon as that's edited, we'll have it here for you to watch:)

We're also learning how to get audio up on this blog so you can hear interviews you miss.  Hopefully, some time next week we'll have that figured out.

So after the morning show, and after our insane video improv session...

We had our monthly all staff meeting.  And Chris and Conrad closed the meeting by singing "Lead Me to the Cross" for our staff. 

And then they sang Happy Birthday to K-LOVE President Mike Novak:)  (Happy Birthday Mike!  We love you!)

They're passionate about freedom in Jesus Christ.  And they have a great sound.
