Francesca Battistelli (:

Francesca Battistelli is a twenty-six year old Italian-American Christian singer from New York, NY. When she was fifteen years old, she joined an all-girl pop singing and dancing group called Bella. When the band broke up, Francesca picked up a guitar and started writing music. In 2004, she released her first independent album, Just Breath.

Francesca signed with Fervent Records in 2008, and released her first signed album, My Paper Heart. Her first single, I'm Letting Go, was released to radio stations during the spring in 2008, and was later named the 16th most played song on Christian radio stations.

This is one of my favorite songs from this album, called Beautiful Beautiful.

This is my all time favorite song by Francesca, called This is the Stuff, from her new album, Hundred More Years

The David Crowder* Band!

The David Crowder* Band was formed in Waco, Texas  in 1995 when David Crowder was attending a Christian University. He noticed that most of the students were not attending any type of church, so he decided to start a church of his own. From that point on, the church grew, and so did its band.

The band released two independent Cd's in 1999, which caused the band to gain quite a following of fans. Soon after, they signed with sixsteprecords/sparrow records and has released six more albums since.

The David Crowder* Band's current members are:
The Astrik (*) that is often placed after the word Crowder, was explained in a comentary  from the band's Cd "Church Music". David Crowder poked fun at his fellow band member, by saying it stood for David Crowder [is about to go insane because Jack Parker continually tries to sabotage the work of the rest of the] band"

This is one of the band's most popular songs, " How He Loves"

Gegory and the Hawk

Today I was having a hard time thinking a topic for this blog. So I thought I would talk a little about one of my favorite bands, Gregory and the Hawk. Their songs are so amazing! Not many people are familiar with the band, because their songs are not the typical pop, country, or rock. Each song deals with some aspect of life in a way that makes you wish you would have thought to describe it like that, which is pretty cool to me. Every one of their songs is like a poem, short and sweet, but gets the point across clearly and in an interesting way. Most of their songs remind me of a metaphorical poem, with we just learned about in English Class. (:

Here is the first song I heard by them (: hope you like it as much as I do!
