Acclaimed Curb | Word Entertainment singer/songwriter Francesca Battistelli unveils a brand new single, “God is Good,” today (9/10). The track can also be found in the upcoming film, God’s Not Dead: We the People, in which Francesca has a starring role. Listen to the poignant track HERE.
Backed by acoustic guitar and dobro, Battistelli delivers her signature storytelling on “God is Good,” her first new music offering since her second full-length Christmas album, This Christmas, released in the final months of 2020. “A few years ago, a good friend of ours went through a devastating loss. I really wanted to write a song that would honor what he went through and really speak to that idea of how tragedy affects our lives, because at one point or another, it does affect all of us. If the last year-and-a-half has taught us anything, it’s that we’re not immune to difficult times,” Battistelli shares. “It’s been a hard season, and this song has brought me a lot of comfort, because through it all, there is one constant, and that is that God is good. So no matter what you’re facing today, I pray that this song would bless you and bring you hope and peace, because He is good and He is for you and He loves you so much.”
“God is Good,” penned by Battistelli, Jeff Pardo, and Ben Glover, will be featured in the fourth installment of the popular God’s Not Dead movie franchise, God’s Not Dead: We the People, which will hit select theaters nationwide for three nights only, Oct. 4-6. Battistelli takes on the role of homeschool mom Rebecca McKinnon, who testifies on behalf of her family, her community and her strong Christian beliefs in order to preserve religious freedom. It wasn’t hard for the six-time GMA Dove Award winner to get into character as she homeschools her own kids back home in Nashville. The singer recently announced she is expecting her sixth child, due in February 2022.
