I love "Hundred More Years."  It's just refreshing amidst some of the tough stuff we go through everyday.
I am also a huge "Beautiful, Beautiful" fan.

Francesca is awesome! I have loved her music since hearing "Free To Be Me" on KLOVE. It has become my motto, so to speak. Her music is about everyday people and everyday things. I have already purchased tickets to her concert with Jeremy Camp in the Tri-Cities Washington this November. So excited to see her live!!

That song just ministers to me every time I hear it!

Thank you for allowing the Lord to use you in the lives of many!

Well done good and faithful Servant!

All of her songs have been such a blessing to me.  I love her new song, Mercy in Motion.  I would love to hear her sing that one.  Thank you Francesca for your dedication to our mighty God.  Thank you K-Love for playing all these wonderful songs.  I have gone through a divorce this year after 36 years of marriage.  Without the songs K-love plays, I am not sure I would have made it.  The songs have kept me lifted up and praising our amazing God.

I love the song Beautiful, Beautiful from Francesca.  The first time I heard it I cried.  I never felt anything but, however, I know that God loves me as I am.  It's by and through His grace that I am here today and he has given me two beautiful daughters that love me as I am.

I absolutely LOVE Francesca Battistelli...her song "Behind the Scenes" has really helped. I say that's the song about my life. I lost my best friend and boyfriend and Christian music has helped me believe in God again and know that I'm gonna be ok. But I saw Francesca at the Winter Jam and I plan on seeing her when she comes to Louisville, KY at the Stare Fair. Thank you so much for being such a great inspiration Francrsca, you're amazing!!!!![

I have a story and a question for Francesca. At Winter Jam in Knoxville I purchased what has become one of my favorite shirts from your booth...the I love my husband shirt.  I loved wearing it and my husband loved when I wore it as well. I work at the post office and have to wear a uniform most days.  Two months ago I was working in the back and got to wear "regular" clothes. I fell on an unmarked wet floor.  Before I realized that I had broken my elbow and sprang my wrist, I went and changed shirts in an effort to save my I love my Husband shirt by soaking it the the bathroom sink. Since that time my husband was diagnosed with protate cancer.  Last Monday he had his prostate removed. Today, praise the Lord, we got the path lab results back and the cancer had not grown past the prostate itself so he is now cancer free!  Now more than ever, I would love to purchase another shirt.  How can I possible get one?

My husband who is 58, loves Francesca's album - "Hundred More Years".  Every morning before he steps into the shower, he puts on her CD and he sings with her, "This Is The Stuff".  He has been doing this for a few months now!  Thank you for your music and blessing my husband.

My 4 year old grandson was told to clean his room and as he was doing that, my daughter hears him singing at the top of his lungs, "This is the stuff that drives me crazy". Of course she had to laugh, but he still had to clean his room. He had a different take on the song obviously. LOL

Francesca's songs speak to my heart and they are very touching. My daughter, 15, sings a special in church every other month and always sings one of her songs.  My daughter has told me that the songs speak to her and portray her at certain times in her life...we both love her music and how it speaks to both of us! Thank you.

I love her songs and my favorite son is Motion of Mercy. I also go to meet her this year. In Norfolk, VA in Winter Jam. I voluteered and I got to sell her products and they said when she is done signing that she will come to her table. Then I saw her leave I was disappointed. I hope I will get to meet her one day.
