Lauren Daigle

Biography

Possessing a smoky and striking alto singing voice, Louisiana singer and songwriter Lauren Daigle went to number one on the Billboard Christian chart with her first album, 2015's How Can It Be. Having already drawn some comparisons to Adele, her more soulful follow-up, Look Up Child, was an even bigger hit, reaching number three on the Billboard 200.
Growing up in Lafayette, Louisiana surrounded by gospel, zydeco, blues, and Cajun music, Christian praise & worship artist Lauren Daigle was always singing around the house as a child. However, it wasn't until a serious illness kept her out of school for nearly two years beginning when she was 15 that she turned completely to music as both solace and a profession. Home-schooled during that time, music became Daigle's hedge against social isolation, and she began singing at her local church as a praise & worship leader. Colleagues quickly encouraged her to try out for the American Idol television series, which she did in both 2010 and 2012.
The stressful and demanding process of trying out for the show taught her a lot of valuable lessons, and she returned home determined to sharpen her writing and singing skills. She began pursuing a degree in child and family studies at Louisiana State University, and while there, was asked by a local band to help with vocals on an EP. A demo of the EP made its way to the Centricity Music label, and they signed Daigle as a solo artist in 2013. Her five-song debut EP, the Paul Mabury-produced How Can It Be, was released in late 2014 and landed on the Christian charts. In the spring of 2015, How Can It Be was expanded into a full-length LP and became both a critical and commercial success, crossing over to reach number 30 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and eventually going gold.
Daigle followed up in October 2016 with an album of soft jazz-inspired Christmas standards called Behold. It repeated the chart success of her debut. The following year saw her contribute the single "Almost Human" to the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049, and in early 2018 Daigle issued the single "You Say" ahead of the release of her sophomore full-length. The song marked her debut on the Hot 100, reaching number 44, and the album, September 2018's Look Up Child, became a Top Three hit in the U.S. It also charted in Australia and Switzerland. ~ Steve Leggett & Marcy Donelson, Rovi
