Battistelli's dealings aren't quite as somber and jazzy as those singers' -- she does, after all, operate within the confines of ...

Battistelli's dealings aren't quite as somber and jazzy as those singers' -- she does, after all, operate within the confines of Christian music, where a certain degree of exuberance is almost required -- but she is heartfelt and transparent in her delivery. Her warmth and her aptitude in adopting various sensibilities -- soft R&B, piano pop, balladry -- render Battistelli a talent to watch in years to come.~ Andree Farias

    Love it!

    This is a great CD. We bought it for our 8 year old daughter for Christmas because she likes the song "Free to Be Me". She plays the CD all the time and now the whole family knows and loves all of the songs. We all especially like the song "Beautiful".

    One of the best CDs I own!!

    Wow!! I don't even know where to begin. This album is great. I love every one of the songs! It is so uplifting and positive. All her songs have a great Christian moral and a great beat. She doesn't sound mixed but just herself, which I love. Every one of these songs I can relate to. Also, I love the CD's design! I strongly recommend this CD and I am sure that it will be worth your money.
