Pope Benedict XVI once said, “Dear Artists, you are the custodians of beauty!” and it’s hard not to think of this when you listen to Alanna Boudreau. This gifted singer and songwriter epitomizes the very essence of this quote with her heartfelt songs and lyrics. They are songs full of solace, healing and redemption.

Though Alanna is a Catholic, she does not categorise her music as such, “not because it doesn’t deal with the faith, but because of the inclination of some to automatically be turned off by such a label or assume that it will sound a certain way without listening to it.” Like life, faith infuses her songs in a very natural way, making listening to them an experience full of discovery.

Here we’ve chosen our favorite of Alanna’s tracks in one easy playlist. We hope you enjoy her songs as much as we do!
