Lauren Daigle Is Topping Pop Charts As A Christian Artist, And It's Wonderful News

I promise you that Christian music is so much more that a hymn or the "church-y" songs you might think of.


Ever heard of the song "You Say?" Well, here you go.

This song has been on top pop charts on the radio, Spotify, Apple Music and more. It has been in the top hits along with songs from Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Khalid, Post Malone, Halsey, The Chainsmokers, Lauv and so much more. Lauren Daigle is actually a Christian artist whose new album "Look Up Child" is being praised by many. So much so, that she won a Grammy for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.

In the Christian music industry, Lauren Daigle has been very successful for roughly four years. Shortly after Selena Gomez shared Daigle's music to her millions of followers on Instagram last year, Daigle's songs blew up.

"You Say" is about when you don't feel like you are enough, God is right there to tell you that those feelings are wrong and that you are enough.

These words were so powerful to others that she is also amongst the best musicians in the lineup for Hangout Music Festival and Firefly Music Festival. It also has been featured in covers by other artists including the well-known sister group called Cimorelli.

This has been a success in the Christian music industry. People want to hear Christian music during a time when it would have seemed that this would be the opposite. It's great music that makes you feel better than before you listened to it. It serves as nothing, but positive and loving words, instead of the derogatory or negative music that is also popular today.

Other artists such as Avril Lavinge and Tori Kelly have also released Christian songs while being known as some of the more popular alternative and pop artists.

Whether you believe in God or what these songs are telling you or not, just know that every word is true because it is backed up by the word of God. Those other songs that you hear on the radio aren't going to fulfill you as these worship songs will. I can't express enough how powerful these words will be to your heart.

I encourage you to listen to this genre and to keep listening. It is only going up from here.

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
