In the heart of Tuscany, Italy, international music legend Andrea Bocelli explores the heart of Christmas in a new TBN special, set to air Dec. 20.
"It's been an absolute joy to welcome TBN viewers into the little church in my beloved birthplace, Lajatico—the exact spot where I discovered, as a child, the power of music as an instrument of prayer," Bocelli says.
Grammy winner Francesca Battistelli joined Bocelli for the special for "What Child Is This."
Battistelli told Charisma the behind-the scenes story, as well as her love of all things Christmas, in an episode of "C-Pop," the Christian pop culture podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.
Her interview begins at the 26-minute mark. Check it out.
