Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Blanca has quickly become a standout solo artist with her first project on Word Label Group. Blanca released last week and entered Top 10 on Billboard's Christian Albums chart, while the debut single, "Who I Am," reached No. 1 on Billboard's Christian Hot AC/CHR chart.  Co-written by Blanca, Australian songwriter Mia Fieldes and Grammy award-winning Seth Mosley, "Who I Am" is a biographical sketch of who Blanca has become during this new chapter of her life and career since leaving Group 1 Crew. I'm running to the One who knows me/Who made every part of me in His hands/I'm holding to the One who holds me/'Cause I know whose I am, I know who I am. The song immediately resonated with fans and became the fastest rising debut single from a new artist. The live performance video for the song was filmed in front of 15,000 fans at Winter Jam Spectacular 2015 in January and can be viewed here.

"I am humbled and encouraged by all the support radio has given to such a personal song for me," says Blanca. "There has been plenty of times when I've allowed fear and insecurity to get the best of me and I've counted it as a failure. But when I see how people have connected to this song and when I read the stories of how God has used this song to remind people of their worth in Him, I realize that He has turned it all around for the good. I'm so grateful for the impact that 'Who I Am' is making and I pray that it continues to encourage listeners to be everything that God is calling them to be."

"Blanca brings a fresh and unique sound to the playlist...perfect for the springtime," adds Jennifer Winborn, Music Director and Afternoon Co-Host, WPOZ (Z88.3), Orlando, FL. '"Who I Am' empowers us all to rejoice in who God made us to be, and to remember that we are His!"

As recently announced, Blanca has also launched a new social media campaign, the #RealTrueYou challenge. The campaign emphasizes the heart of the album and new single, finding our identity in Christ and embracing what makes us different and beautiful in God's eyes. She has challenged fans, friends, and several other artists to participate, and the movement is also gaining support from a variety of partners, including Project Inspired, Jam The Hype, New Release Tuesday, FaithGirlz, and Girls Of Grace. Fans are also responding with such comments as, "You are such an inspiration to girls and women everywhere!," "This is a great idea bc so many girls think you need to wear a TON of makeup to make them beautiful, but God already made them beautiful!," and "Love it Blanca!" 

Blanca is featuring her new music on Jam The Hype TV for two weeks in a row. Last week, she became the first Artist Spotlight to be featured on the website, with early premieres for three songs from Blanca, "Different Drum, "Echo," and "Not Backing Down." This week, the powerhouse vocalist will be featured on Inside The Music EPK and it can be viewed at

Blanca is currently on Building 429's spring tour that runs through May 16th. For more updates about Blanca please visit online,,,
