Lauren Daigle
"Trust In You"

  Centricity Music's newest artist, Lauren Daigle, is living up to the high expectations for her current single, "Trust In You." The song reached No. 1 on Billboard's Contemporary Christian music charts. It was named "Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year" at the Dove Awards. It followed on the heels of the title track from  "How Can It Be" which also made the top 5.
  A followup Deluxe Edition of the CD released on May 6.
  And, by the way, Lauren won three Dove Awards including "Songwriter of the Year" at the 48th Annual Dove Awards.

  Life experience often serves to sharpen a songwriter’s edge and provide them with a more colorful palette to draw from when creating images with their music. Though she’s young, Lauren Daigle has lived a lot of life and those experiences—some challenging and others exhilarating—enrich her perspective and create her heartfelt worship music.

  Blessed with a voice that is both smoky and sweet, Daigle has forged a unique sound that combines the soulful, heart-in-throat vulnerability of Adele, with the passionate fire to serve God that Lauren admires in Brooke Fraser. How Can It Be, is ripe with the kind of compelling lyrics and engaging melodies that invite listeners to draw closer to their creator, and that’s just what she had in mind.

  “There’s a continuing theme on this record—trust,” says Daigle. “My heart’s cry is that people feel empowered as a body of Christ. It’s just heavy on my heart for all of us to rise up in unity and recognize the goodness of God. My hope is that people are empowered by knowing who they belong to, knowing that they are the son or daughter of God, and in response to that being able to worship fully, worship with complete abandon.”

  Faith and music have been intertwined in the Louisiana native’s life since birth. Growing up in a region steeped in blues, country, zydeco and Cajun music has inspired her to frame her worship music in a unique light. But Lauren admits she almost pushed music to the backburner, unsure if it was her true calling, until a devastating illness brought her young life into sharper focus.
  “It honestly was one of the best things that had happened to me,” Daigle says of contracting a debilitating virus when she was 15 that kept her out of school for nearly two years. “I was a sophomore living life and having a blast. Then there was a big halt. Because my illness was an immune deficiency, anything that was airborne I’d catch it. If any friends were sick I couldn’t be around them, so going to school became off limits.”

  In the quiet solitude forced upon her by this condition, God spoke. “The Lord began to just pour in passion for music, singing and writing songs,” says Daigle.
  “When I was six-years-old people would say, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ And I’d say, ‘I want to be a singer.’ My mom called the house, ‘The Music Box,’ because I’d walk around the house singing all the time. But when I got older I went to this college prep school and felt I needed to get serious, so I thought I’d go into the medical field and do mission work. Then when the Lord brought me into that solitude I was like, ‘How did I get distracted from what my true passion is? I NEED to be singing.’ He really brought me through all of that season to pour in a passion for ministry and a passion for music.”

  Once she was well, Daigle attended a charter school and completed a year and a half of class work in six months and actually graduated early. She took a year off from school, traveling to Brazil to do mission work, before enrolling at Louisiana State University to pursue a degree in Child and Family Studies, but music was always on her agenda.
  She led worship at her church. Then, came here three year effort to ake it on American Idol.

  "I tried out for American Idol for the first time when I was 17 years old (in 2010)," she told Hallel.com. "I made it to the end of Hollywood Week and got the big 'NO' on the green mile, the round where you are one on one with the judges to find out if you have made it to the Top 24.

  "I tried out again the next season and did not even make it to Hollywood. The following year (2012), I tried out one more time and made it from the Hollywood rounds to the Las Vegas level, but I was cut after the first round in Las Vegas.
  "During this time, I asked the Lord to come meet me in the middle of the performances. It didn't matter that I was potentially singing in front of millions of viewers because it felt empty. Without His presence there was no joy in the process. This is when the Lord taught me about the importance of worship and how fulfilling it is to lift up His name. I left American Idol with a great experience under my belt, but joyfully returned to Louisiana to lead worship for my sweet church."

   She sang on an EP a local band was recording. It was that gig that led to an invitation from Centricity Music to attend a retreat in Washington State. When the lead singer of the band had an emergency appendectomy, Lauren stepped in and immediately impressed label execs that encouraged her to come to Nashville.

  “After the first week of being in Music City I thought, ‘Ok, I’m moving to Nashville!’” Daigle says of her current home. She began collaborating with local songwriters, sang background vocals on Jason Gray’s hit “Nothing Is Wasted” and landed her own deal with Centricity Music. She made her debut with the beautiful Christmas anthem “Light of the World,” which served as an appetizer that left fans anxiously awaiting her first project.
  She did a duet with Atlanta's Chris Tomlin on "Noel" on his Christmas album, "Adore."

  Produced by Paul Mabury (Brooke Fraser, Hillsong, One Sonic Society), Daigle’s How Can It Be is a compelling collection of songs that celebrate God’s faithfulness with a sense of wonder and awe. In the title track/first single, Lauren gives voice to the grateful heart inside every believer as she sings: You plead my cause. You right my wrongs. You break my chains. You overcome. You gave Your life To give me mine. You say that I am free. How can it be?

  The project opens with “I Am Yours,” a powerful reminder of our worth as children of God.
  “It talks about being weak. Sometimes after a stressful week, we’re tired and drained but when we find security in the Lord and we can say ‘I’m yours,’ that’s when the strength is there,” says Daigle. “He constantly provides and He constantly pours it into us. As I was writing, thinking about how I wanted the structure of the EP to go, I thought it would be awesome if people could immediately recognize their place in the Lord. I wanted the project to start off with this song to really encourage people, even if they’re not Christians, by saying, ‘There is a place for you as a child of God.’”

  Lauren penned the current #1 hit “Trust in You” with Mabury and Michael Farren.
 “‘Trust In You’ came from a series of transitions in my life,” she explains. “My grandfather had just passed away and he and I were super close. When I lived in Baton Rouge and went to LSU, I lived with him. He was so much fun and one of the most influential men in my life. He was the first person really close to me that I had lost.
  "I was telling Michael Farren about it and he told me about a book he was reading by a man who once worked for Mother Teresa. Upon arriving, she said, ‘Is there anything I can do for you? And he said, ‘Yes, you can pray for me. You can pray that I have clarity.’ And she said, ‘No, I am not going to pray that you have clarity because clarity is the last thing that’s holding you back.’ He said, ‘Mother Teresa what are you talking about? You have had clarity your whole life.’ She said, ‘No, I’ve never had clarity. I’ve only had trust.’ When I heard that, I knew it was not about seeing the big picture. It’s about trusting that the Lord is going to be there for you.”

  “Come Alive (Dry Bones)” is an evocative song that showcases the power and passion in Daigle’s distinctive voice. “I wrote that with Michael and it’s from Ezekiel 37 where the Lords tells the dry bones to come alive,” Daigle shares. “We all have times in our life when we feel things are dead, but I have to remember I have the power in me through Christ that can create anything from dust.”

  Each song carries the listener on a worthy emotional journey. All Sons & Daughters joins Lauren on the impressive “Power to Redeem,” while “Salt & Light” is one of Daigle’s favorites. “I wrote the song in my old apartment and thought, ‘Ok Lord, I just have so much joy in my heart that I want to make sure that my life brings a beautiful song to you. I want my life to sing to you,” she says. The album closes out with a bonus track, “Light of the World,” the inspiring Christmas anthem that has become a fan favorite.

  In a short time, Lauren has made an impressive mark on the Christian music scene. She appeared on Jason Gray’s Christmas tour and opened for Atlanta's Aaron Shust on the Morning Rises trek. She sang with Hillsong at a mega church in Birmingham, an experience she’ll always treasure, and leads worship three or four Sundays a month at Atlanta’s North Point Community Church, pastored by Andy Stanley. She has a heart for victims of human trafficking, a cause she has given her time and energy to since her college days.

  Lauren Daigle has a passion to see lives changed and knows that music is a powerful vehicle.
  “I hope that as these songs hit peoples’ ears, they don’t hear my voice, they don’t hear really good production, so they can say, ‘Whoa Lord, I’m encountering YOU right now,’” says Daigle. “That’s my heart’s cry for How Can It Be. That people are moved and lives get changed because they get to encounter more about God and see His character.”
