Andrea Bocelli and Francsca Battistelli Sing 'What Child Is This?'

Grammy-awarding winner artist Francesca Battistelli joins Andrea Bocelli for a beautiful rendition of ‘What Child Is This.’ This Christmas classic is the perfect selection for these two powerhouse voices.


‘What Child is this
Who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?’

Andrea Bocelli is one of the most famous musicians and he’s been sharing his vocal talent with the world for years. His music has touched hearts all over the world and now he is teaming up with renowned Christian singer Francesca Battistelli.

This beautiful duet is featured on the holiday special, “Andrea Bocelli: The Heart of Christmas,” which is set to air on TBN. When Battistelli was asked to perform with Bocelli, she enthusiastically said yes and the entire experience was even more than she could’ve imagined. Battistelli told The Christian Post, “There was a moment where we’re in this beautiful church, and we’re singing and worshiping Jesus and Bocelli’s voice just rolled out incredibly. I looked out into the audience and I had this moment that was so emotional for me. I had to snap myself out of it so I wouldn’t cry. It was just so, so special.”

It’s obvious when you hear these 2 sing out the powerful lyrics just how much weight is behind every single note.

‘This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.’
Who else is rejoicing in the birth of our Savior?
