Watch Lauren Daigle Stun The World With Performance That Brought Thousands To Jesus
It’s not very often that a Christian artist takes the world by storm in such a way that they beat out big name artists like, Ariana Grande, Cardi B, Drake, and Nicki Minaj. Yet Lauren Daigle has done so.
Lauren made major headlines in the music world after her new album “Look Up Child” debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Not surprising to anyone who has heard her music, ‘Look Up Child’ hit number 1 on the Top Christian Albums chart, selling 115,000 album units in one week. This debut marked the best sales week for a Christian album in nearly nine years. Talk about an amazing feet.
According to Billboard.“That’s the largest overall week for a Christian music album in 2018, and the biggest for any Christian set since the charts began ranking albums by equivalent album units in late 2014.”
Part of Daigle’s charm is that her music has crossover appeal with the secular market, which she said her music was designed to do. IF you listen to her voice, she has a remarkable resemblance to Adel.
There were only two artists ahead of her on the Billboard Charts, which included Paul McCartney and Eminem, holding slots 1 and 2.
Daigle told the associated press, “I wanted to bring elements where people who weren’t necessarily church people, or Christians, or whatever the title is, who don’t really dive into that kind of music can hear something and it be compelling enough and it be strong enough to where they are drawn in and feel welcomed and invited.”
She also stated: “We have this saying in my team that’s called ‘Extend the tent pegs. And it’s not to leave behind anybody that has listened to this music so far and that has been along this journey with me because I am 100 percent grateful. So I don’t want to leave anybody behind, but how to do I also make music that people who might not listen to Christian music they can also connect to? They can also relate to? That’s super-important to me to make music that permeates all the walls and just tear all the walls down. People need love, people need hope. People need joy anywhere in life.”
Look Up Child, which was released on Sept. 7, is the third studio album for the 27-year-old Daigle, following her wildly successful first set, 2015’s “How Can it Be”, which topped Top Christian Albums for 12 weeks.
Lauren is also up for two Grammy’s, and she’s going strong.
Lauren’s career is just getting started and we can only imagine with such success already, that she has a wonderful and amazingly successful career in front of her.
