Call it life feeding art. Call it truth in advertising. Call it a vintage Francesca moment. It happened as Francesca Battistelli was working on the follow-up to My Paper Heart, one of the most joyful and successful national debuts in recent memory, and it provides a telling glimpse into the mindset that makes her art so powerfully uplifting.

"Everything was completely different this time around," she says. "When I made the first record, that's all I was doing with my life—writing and recording, writing and recording. But this time I remember thinking, 'OK, if I can just get through these four things—being pregnant, writing and recording my album, moving to a new city and touring!' There were times when I was like, 'I don't know how I can do this,' but I kept thinking, 'I'll be okay.'"

Faith within struggle. Joy amid chaos. They're key to what makes Francesca's music so widely appreciated by critics, fans and peers alike, and to why she has been able to achieve a long-stated goal: "to bring something authentic to the scene that even non-Christians could listen to."
