Hundred More Years by by Francesca Battistelli

Her name may be hard to pronounce, but Francesca Battistelli’s second album, Hundred More Years, is easy to listen to. She offers catchy, light songs on themes like grace, love, forgiveness, and God’s goodness. Battistelli begins with an instant radio hit, “This Is the Stuff,” which centers on how God can use mundane incidents, like losing your keys, to grow a person. She recently won the Dove Award for Artist of the Year for her work on her first album, My Paper Heart. (Fervent Records)
