Overview

When it was released in the summer of 2008, Francesca Battistelli's My Paper Heart garnered attention in CCM circles because of "I'm Letting Go," a single that sounded like a B-side to Sara Bareilles' ubiquitous "Love Song," an adult contemporary hit at the time. It seemed like an opportunistic move on the part of her handlers, but Battistelli was no copycat: the rest of My Paper Heart positioned her as an up-and-coming singer/songwriter in her own right, a youthful songstress with a smoky, soulful voice -- much like a younger, faith-based version of Fiona Apple or Rachael Yamagata. 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. [A Deluxe Edition was released in 2010 with bonus tracks from the Dented Fender Sessions as well as a music video.]

I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful this CD is. If you are looking for something to lighten you spirits and put a smile on your face and a dance in your step, then this CD is for you. And of course, it will lift your heart.

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.

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".
