FRANCESCA BATTISTELLI'S NO. 1 SINGLE "HOLY SPIRIT" RECEIVES RIAA
Nashville, Tenn. (Friday, August 4, 2017) – Fervent Records recording artist and hit songwriter, Francesca Battistelli, was recently honored at a small gathering of label, industry partners, family and bandmates for her second RIAA-Certified Gold record for the GRAMMY® Award winning and No. 1 single “Holy Spirit.”
“What a special night! This song has been such an anchor in my own life, and I don’t think we ever expected this, but the Lord’s plans are always better than ours,” shares Francesca. “To watch this song reach so many people has been such a blessing!"
“Holy Spirit,” from Battistelli’s album If We’re Honest, spent an impressive 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot at Christian radio and was the No. 2 most played song of 2015 at Christian AC Radio. Additionally, Francesca took home her very first GRAMMY® Award with “Holy Spirit” in the Best Contemporary Christian and Gospel Performance/Song category at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
