Lauren Daigle is crushing it in the music world. Over the last couple of years, she has raked in a number of trophies, including the most recent artist of the year from the K-LOVE fan awards.
Her debut album, How Can It Be, released in 2015 and rose to the first slot on the Billboard Christian Albums chart. The album won a Dove Award in 2015 for Song of the Year and Daigle was named New Artist of the Year. “How Can It Be” was also nominated for a Grammy in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Album category.
On her website, Daigle explains that the album is about trust and was born out of an experience of trusting God in the midst of a painful situation. In the following video, Daigle explains that the very week she was scheduled to record the “How Can It Be,” she had to put it on hold to spend time with her ailing grandfather. “God made death so real, but so beautiful in that time.”
Daigle is currently touring with Hillsong United’s Empires Tour, which is performing throughout the U.S. and Canada through July 30.
