Back in 2017, Reba McEntire brought the sense of spiritual renewal during the ACM awards night. The moment became special with a Grammy-nominated Contemporary Christian Music artist, Lauren Daigle. The pair rendered a stunning performance of “Back to God” which did not just awe the audience, but also made them reflect on their faith. Daigle’s voice was a perfect complement to the country legend’s exceptional voice. Their voices naturally spread the genuine conviction of joy among the crowd.
Words are not enough to express that heavenly vocal combination. But before anything else, let’s know more about Lauren Daigle.
Lauren Daigle, an angel on earth
Lauren Daigle, a Louisiana native, is a woman blessed with a voice that is both smoky and sweet. Her unique sound that combines a soulful heart-in-throat vulnerability with the passionate fire to sing for the Lord has brought light to the dim world of secular music. She has lived a life that went through stitches and burns which enriched her perspective and created her heartfelt worship music.
Daigle has earned two Grammy nominations for Best Contemporary Christian Album for her debut record How Can it Be, and Best Contemporary Christian song for “Trust in You.” She also received a Dove Award for Artist of the Year, and Billboard Music Award for Top Ten Contemporary Christian Album.
Daigle has a soft heart for country music
The acclaimed CCM singer-songwriter proudly expressed her fondness for country music. Being a part of the ACM Awards alongside with such an iconic artist like McEntire has become one of the most thrilling experiences she ever had.
“I grew up listening to country music with my dad on the way to school. It is such a full circle moment to now be singing ’Back to God’ with Reba on the ACM Awards!” Daigle says. “This opportunity offers a new platform to share hope and redemption, and I’m excited for us to collaborate in showing the world His unconditional love.”
Indeed, the song’s message reaches the deepest part of our heart if sang with sincerity. Take time to reflect with Reba Mc Entire and Lauren Daigle’s duet.
