EDITORS’ NOTES

CCM goes clubbing on Blanca’s audacious debut. The result is a batch of songs featuring infectious hooks and uplifting messages that are married to energetic dance beats. A call for Christian unity, “Different Drum” leaps out of the gate with a bouncy R&B groove. Just as ecstatic is the Lecrae-featuring “Get Up,” a hip-hop meditation for those torn between sin and salvation. Blanca can also transcend lyrics and express her passion with spiraling vocal gymnastics, as on the brass-laced “Forever Love.”

About Blanca

Blanca Elaine Callahan, known by her stage name Blanca, is a CCM pop singer based in Orlando, Florida. Prior to starting her solo career, the Puerto Rican-born, American-raised vocalist spent a decade singing with Christian hip-hop outfit Group 1 Crew. After forming in 2003, the group signed with the Warner Bros-owned Fervent Records, eventually releasing four albums and making a strong showing on the Billboard Christian charts in the late 2000s. In 2013, Blanca announced her departure from Group 1 Crew and began working on her first solo release. With her powerful vocals and strong pop sensibilities, Blanca's music remains firmly rooted in the Christian faith, but offers plenty of crossover appeal. Her debut EP, Who I Am, arrived in January 2015 and was followed several month later by her self-titled debut album. A mix of uplifting pop, soul, dance, and hip-hop, the album debuted in the Top Ten of Billboard's Christian chart and cracked the Top 200 pop chart. Blanca released a remix EP called "Not Backing Down" in 2016 and in 2017, she released the single "Real Love," the first taste of her second album. ~ Timothy Monger
