FrancescaBattistelliIfWereHonest-webFrancesca Battistelli’s third studio album, If We’re Honest (Fervent Records/Word Distribution), debuted at No. 1 on the SoundScan Christian Albums chart. If We're Honest is the GRAMMY-nominated, Dove Award-winning artist’s third consecutive album to reach the top spot on the chart. 

During the release’s first week at retail, Battistelli was tapped by FOX News’ FOX & Friends to perform the album’s hit single, “Write Your Story,” followed by a performance of the album’s “When The Crazy Kicks In” on FOX’s After the Show Show.  She also performed the aforementioned songs and more from the new album on a 60-minute “Delivered Live” special on SiriusXM’s “The Message” and for more than 3,000 people at a KSBJ Radio event in Houston. She was featured on the cover of the May issue of CCM Magazine as well as May/June issue of Christian Musician Magazine, and was recently interviewed or featured by USA Today, The Tennessean, The Christian Post and multiple radio outlets. She was also featured in a Family Christian Stores Facebook chat and a Google Hangout with NewReleaseTuesday.com

The artist added another feather to her hat May 5 as the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) awarded her a Christian Music Award for "Strangely Dim," a top 10 single from Hundred More Years: Deluxe Edition (Fervent/Word).
