Album Review

When it was released in the summer of 2008, Francesca Battistelli's My Paper Heart garnered attention in CCM circles because of "I'm Letting Go," a single that sounded like a B-side to Sara Bareilles' ubiquitous "Love Song," an adult contemporary hit at the time.

[A Deluxe Edition was released in 2010 with bonus tracks from the Dented Fender Sessions as well as a music video.]
