Nashville, Tenn. (October 24, 2022) – Curb | Word Entertainment’s Francesca Battistelli earned the GMA Dove Award for Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for “God Is Good” at the 53rd Annual GMA Dove Awards, which aired exclusively on TBN and the TBN app on October 21. The win marks Battistelli’s 7th career GMA Dove Award win. Listen to the winning track HERE.
“It’s always an honor to win a Dove, but it’s extra special when it’s for a song that means so much to me,” shares Battistelli. “I’m thankful to see that ‘God Is Good’ has impacted others in a meaningful way and excited to see how the Lord continues to use it!”
“God Is Good,” which was Battistelli’s first new music offering since her second full length Christmas album, This Christmas, can also be found in God’s Not Dead; We the People, a film released in 2021 in which Battistelli has a starring role.
Battistelli also shares of the song, “The last few years have shown me that no one is immune to difficult times. They are actually promised for the believer. Having a song to point to as a reminder of God’s faithfulness is helpful, and this song in particular has been a huge comfort when ‘tears fall.’ I hope you are encouraged that no matter what you’re facing today, if you’re in Christ, it’s all for His glory and your ultimate good. What a promise! God is always good.”
This Christmas season, fans can catch Battistelli on NewSong’s “The Very Merry Christmas & More Tour” – find more information HERE. Fans can also hear her alongside Sanctus Real on current radio single, “Won’t Let Me Go” – listen to the single HERE.
