Her powerful lyrics resonate with millions of people all over the world…
Lauren Daigle has exploded onto the music scene … establishing herself as one of the most successful artists in Christian music history.
“Your songs reach deep into hearts,” wrote one fan on Twitter.
I love the power of her songs … but what I love even more is how so many ‘nones’ are hearing about God’s love.
Her “crossover” songs – gospel songs that are being released in the secular market – are helping to open worldwide doors to the gospel.
At the 2019 Gospel Music Association (GMA) Dove Awards, Daigle won the awards for:
- Artist of the Year
- Song of the Year – “You Say”
- Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year – Look Up Child
“You Say” was first released in mid-2018 and has been the #1 rated single on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs chart for a record 66 weeks.
Daigle won a Grammy award for both the single and the album.
The lyrics of “You Say” talk about what God says about us … in spite of what we think about ourselves.
The words of the chorus are powerful:
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, You say I am Yours
And I believe, I believe what You say of me.
Listen to “You Say,” the 2019 Dove Award Song of the Year here (4 ½ minutes).
Another powerful song on the Look Up Child album is “Rescue.” It assures us that God is our comfort and our shelter when we feel lost.
