Hailing from Lafayette, Louisiana, Lauren Daigle is an artist whose gospel, blues, and zydeco influence clearly shows. Known for her smoky voice, and Grammy Award-winning range, Lauren captures audiences far outside the range of her conventional Billboard Christian fans.
While one could compare this artist to Adele, she is rather a distinctive talent who blends genres and sounds that the deepest soul seekers could only hope to hear. “You Say” entered the charts as Lauren’s debut track reaching a ceiling of 44th but inspiring massive success for the album in which it featured.
“You Say” was a part of her album entitled “Look Up Child” and claimed the third most popular album prize out of all artists in the US. Given her powerful delivery and relatable songwriting, it’s no wonder than this star was the first to take the number one place on no less than five Christian charts at the same time.
It claimed Lauren top albums, airplay, songs, streaming, and digital sales. Putting forth a message that assures all of overcoming struggles and listening to the guiding voice of trust in that which is greater than the self, this humble but strong ballad describes the ability to be loved.

Lauren explained, “This song for me was just a reminder of identity. It was a reminder that when I’m weak, He is strong. So how do I change that and bring that into my everyday life? When I feel inadequate, how is it that there are always these moments where I feel like God just steps in and supersedes my inadequacies.”
