LAUREN DAIGLE WINS ARTIST OF THE YEAR AT 2019 DOVE AWARDS
Christian singer Lauren Daigle has been named Artist of the Year at the annual Dove Awards. The successful recording artist, who came into the event with the most nominations, ended up winning additional awards for both “Song of the Year” and “Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year.”
Much of Daigle’s good fortune and her masterful crossover into the mainstream music industry is down to her tremendously successful 2018 hit single, “You Say,” which has dominated the charts since its release.
“Interestingly, while “You Say” has been consistent with its reign, the tune it’s on the same level as was able to dominate the chart in three separate years, racking up a total of 61 frames at No. 1,” wrote Hugh McIntyre at Forbes.
“With only two albums to her name, Lauren Daigle has already established herself as one of the most successful artists in Christian music history.”
“Just to see the support of so many people, it’s really, really moving. It’s overwhelming,” Daigle told the audience after winning song of the year, according to Fox News.
Lauren also took to social media following the event, expressing her amazement at the power of her songs in reaching the hearts of so many.
“Ahhh!! Honored with three @GMADoveAwards for Artist of the Year, Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year!” she wrote. “It is incredible to see the impact these songs and the album are having in peoples lives and throughout our music community.”
I can certainly like many criticise her for going on Ellen. However sometimes people need to hear the message in deeper places.
Her talent is evident. Christianity’s version of Adele
Obviously comments like the ones above where Lauren Daigle couldn’t say if homosexuality is a sin because there are people she loves who are homosexual and she is not God are not helpful.
Also referring to Ellen as full of light is quite concerning.
What is interesting about both of their statements is how similar their beliefs are. Daigle, a professed Christian, and Ellen, an openly gay entertainer both have the same philosophy. They are both promoting a false gospel of love and acceptance instead of sin and repentance.
While Daigle does mention Christ, it seems that despite being a professed Christian with ample opportunity to share the gospel message to secular audiences, she doesn’t do it.
A couple of weeks’ before appearing on Ellen, Daigle took the stage at the American Music Awards where she presented an award to the late rap star, XXXTentacion. Daigle was interviewed twice at the AMA Ceremony and not once did she glorify God or share her faith. Instead she gave glory to music (not God) for the ability to transform lives.
In a second interview, Daigle continues to talk about the power of music without mentioning God, Jesus, or her Christian faith. Later, when discussing her hit song, “You Say,” she says the song stopped people from committing suicide. When the interviewer asks how she feels about this, Daigle again credits the power of music and then says, “I choose to just stick with the fun. I’m like where’s the party at? Let’s have a good time.”
Here are some other articles that may shed some light on her faith. Obviously Christians of varying maturity can end up in the public spotlight
Not everyone who appears in this public space can clearly represent Christianity properly.
However it seems Daigle is seeking to have a foot in both camps which her Lord and Saviour said was impossible
Matthew 6:24 King James Version (KJV)
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.(money).
