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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
