PORTLAND, OR (August 3, 2012) – Catholic music darling, Jackie François’s newest CD, Divine Comedy (spiritandsong.com) has made a strong impression on listeners in it’s first week—climbing to the #3 spot on iTunes Christian and Gospel charts. Nearly three years in the making, contemporary Christian music fans everywhere are enamored with the singer’s sophomore album.

With an average rating of 5/5 stars, comments on iTunes are consistently glowing: “…each song is sung from the heart, it lifts the Christian music field way up…” “I let it play from start to finish and I think I had one of the best prayer sessions I’ve had in months.” “I have been waiting eagerly for this album… Jackie sings from the heart and her lyrics are original and moving.”

“This CD of a perfect example of what it means to be a publisher of worship music” says Robert Feduccia, General Manager of spiritandsong.com. “It’s about providing songs and songwriters to the Church that bring people to prayerful singing. In a uniquely feminine and uniquely powerful way, Jackie does exactly that on Divine Comedy.”

The album contains eight contemporary songs that range from energetic pop sounds like the title track, to longing ballads like the break-out single, “Your Love Is Better.” Ultimately, Divine Comedy encourages all—especially teens and young adults—to live a Gospel-focused life.

Jackie says, “As a worship leader, the greatest compliment is to know people are using the songs to worship the Lord. My hope is that my listeners and those with whom I minister realize that even though we may turn away from God, forget Him, and run far from Him, He is the only thing that can satisfy the longings of our heart; He is everything we need.”

Listeners can purchase the digital version Divine Comedy on iTunes or at spiritandsong.com/DivineComedy. The extended hard-copy version, featuring a bevvy of bonus features including videos and links to chord sheets can also be found on spiritandsong.com.
