Florida-based CCM pop artist Blanca offers up her self-titled solo debut for the Warner-owned imprint Word Records. After nearly a decade as the singer for acclaimed Christian hip-hop act Group 1 Crew, Blanca announced her intentions to pursue a solo career in 2013 and began working on a more pop-oriented style that was introduced in early 2015 on the Who I Am EP. Her debut arrived a few months later and showcased her knack for strong, uplifting melodies and stylistic versatility. Still firmly rooted in the Christian faith, her mix of pop, soul, dance, and hip-hop, offers plenty of crossover appeal, especially on tracks like the Beyonce-esque "Different Drum" and the epic "Who I Am."
