Two-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum artist Lauren Daigle told thousands K-Love fans Saturday (May 27) that “God will literally do the most amazing things through music and through songs.”
During the “Songwriters Showcase” at the K-Love Fan Awards weekend experience in Nashville, Tennessee, Daigle joined Steven Curtis Chapman, Bart Millard, Anne Wilson, Matthew West, and Michael Cochren onstage to share the stories behind some of their songs.
Each artist performed three songs. Daigle chose to sing “Rescue” from her 2018 critically-acclaimed album “Look Up Child.”
“God will do something amazing with songs,” Daigle said. “I got this picture of this girl that I didn’t know—hadn’t met her—but it was a very clear, clear vision of someone that was experiencing drug addiction.”
Saying that the whole story was laid out before her, Daigle reiterated, “I didn’t know this person.”
Years later, a woman approached Daigle and shared, “I ended up going through rehab, and I used your song ‘Rescue’ to carrying me through.”
“I remember seeing this person and thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, she doesn’t even know that this is exactly how the song was written,’” Daigle said, explaining that God gave her the story of this woman, whom she didn’t know, in order to impact her life for his glory.
“Rescue” was Daigle’s third single from the album and talks about how God will send an army to find his hurting and lost child.
Some of the lyrics are as follows:
I hear you whisper underneath your breath. I hear your SOS, your SOS. I will send out an army to find you. In the middle of the darkest night, I will never stop marching to reach you. In the middle of the hardest fight, it’s true, I will rescue you.
