3 weeks ago, popular news sources such as the Rolling Stones posted articles all about 27-year-old Christian Artist, Lauren Daigle, and how she has managed to take spot #3 in the Billboard Top 200. Daigle was well ahead of popular artists such as Drake, Arianna Grande, and Post Malone. She released an album titled Look Up Child, which has had so much popularity that besides hitting #3, it set the record for biggest Christian music album in 2018, biggest traditional sales frame for a Christian album in 9 years, and largest sales week for a Christian female artist in over 20 years, according to the Rolling Stone.
Lauren Daigle has been nicknamed "The Christian Adele" due to her powerhouse vocals, which do sound similar in some ways to the voice of Adele. Her style of music is often described as a soft-rock, but absolutely incredible none-the-less.
Now this incredibly talented artist has certainly showed herself to be far much more than a pretty voice with pretty lyrics. The songs themselves have a sort of power to them, and they are entirely filled with soul. Lauren Daigle also recently visited a maximum security prison, singing songs with inmates. She reflected on it over Facebook saying "I saw hope in the face of the hopeless, joy in the wake of sorrow, wealth in the gap of depravity, and life in the midst of death." Lauren Diagle did and is continuing to do what Christians everywhere have been called to do; to go outside of the church to share the Gospel.
Daigle's album Look Up Child is filled with inspirational and encouraging songs. I highly recommend it for anyone who is going through a tough time and is looking for hope- or if you just like music! Either way, I highly encourage you to check out her album, it's quite fantastic. If you would like to learn more about the album, you can check out the articles linked below!
