Nashville, TN - (September 18, 2013) - On September 17 at an event in Franklin, TN, Pepsi MidAmerica unveiled their Christian Artist Can Panel Series which features Fervent Records' Francesca Battistelli (Diet Pepsi) in addition to fellow Christian artists Matt Maher (Dr. Pepper), Matthew West (Pepsi) and TobyMac (Mountain Dew). Each artist is featured on three million cans for a total of 12 million cans available throughout the Midwest this fall. The Christian Artist Can Panel Series were first announced at the inaugural K-LOVE Fan Awards in June.

"It is so surreal to see my face on a Pepsi can," said Battistelli. "I am beyond excited to see God reach many lives through these cans and the songs each artist is giving away. It's a fantastic honor."

"Pepsi MidAmerica is honored to partner with K-LOVE to present the Christian Artist Can Panel series featuring some of Christian music's finest artists," added Lee Crisp, President & COO, Pepsi MidAmerica. "These Pepsi cans were originally intended to quench thirst but now we realize they're able to quench a deeper thirst…a thirst of the soul."

Included on each can is a link offering a free song download from the artist associated with the can. Fans can purchase a collector series which includes all four cans in the K-LOVE online store here or Battistelli's individual can in her online store at here. They will also be available at various stores throughout fives states in the Midwest.

Battistelli was on hand at the unveiling Tuesday night alongside the other artists. She is just back in town from Disney's "Night of Joy" in Orlando, FL, where she performed in front of Cinderella's Castle marking the first time in nine years that a solo female artist has secured the prestigious spot on the event's main stage. Battistelli is presently writing for her third studio album scheduled for release in 2014 and playing select shows throughout the U.S. She also has three nominations, including a nod for "Artist of the Year," at the 2013 Dove Awards scheduled to take place in Nashville, TN, on October 15.
