Francesca Battistelli has been nominated for a 2016 Grammy Award for “Holy Spirit,” the third nomination she’s garnered in two years from her breakthrough 2014 album If We’re Honest.
Battistelli was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for the track that spent 15 consecutive weeks at No. 1 and topped 5 radio charts simultaneously over the summer, becoming Battistelli’s third consecutive No. 1 following “Write Your Story” and “He Knows My Name.”
"It's a huge honor to be nominated for another Grammy! I'm beyond thankful that this album has had so much life--to be nominated a second year in a row for the same project is incredibly rewarding.”
The Grammy Awards will be presented Feb. 15 in Los Angeles. This is Battistelli’s fourth nomination overall. She is currently on the road for The Third Annual Francesca Battistelli Christmas Tour, which resumes Thursday in Newnan. Georgia.
The tour will wrap up an amazing year for Battistelli, who is expecting her third child in March. She was voted Female Artist of the Year at the KLOVE Fan Awards last spring, received her first Billboard Music Awards nomination, took three more nods at the 2015 Dove Awards and has had a song at the top of the radio charts for 19 weeks this calendar year.
