The 10-track studio album was produced and recorded in Nashville, Tennessee by well-known South African born musician and producer Daniel Ornellas (Tree63). Featuring on drums, Jerad Kneale (Rebecca St. James, Audio Adrenalin), on guitar, Grammy Award-winning artist Dwayne Larring (Lauren Daigle, Natalie Grant, Sonicflood) , and Scotty Murray on guitar. Bilingual, Dalla Torre, recorded the same full 10–track album in Portuguese as well, titled Teu Coração.
“Jessica has a rich powerful voice that is reminiscent of some of the great Bethel singers. The fact that she can not only sing these wonderful songs in English, but also has the skill to deliver them in a beautiful way in Portuguese, gives her an incredible edge. I’m trusting for great things as she moves forward,” says Ornellas.
The single “You Want My Heart,” was written by Jessica Dalla Torre, Daniel Ornellas, Jessica Crawford, and Jessica’s father Amadeu Lourenço. “The song was inspired by the idea of a conversation between us and God. The message is that God loves us regardless of what we do, He just wants us to draw closer to Him, to be healed of any wrong we’ve done. Our own efforts to please God, even though we try hard, will fall short if we don’t have a relationship with Him,” says Jessica.
Jessica spends most of her time touring internationally and locally, raising funds for her ‘Into Your Heart Foundation’ which serves underprivileged communities with basic needs. She has performed at conferences in South Africa; Orange County, USA; and Lisbon, Porto, Algarve in Portugal.
“I love meeting different people and experiencing their unique cultures. People share their testimonies with me when they are moved and drawn closer to God during praise and worship, it keeps me focused on my calling for the Kingdom of God. When you praise and worship with your voice it creates a divine connection to the heavens. It opens your heart – allows healing and a softening of your spirit. Worship breaks chains of fear, sickness, sin, evil and destruction. I pray that people will be touched and inspired, that God’s word will shine through and that people may have a deeper connection with Him,” concludes, Jessica.
