The term “angelic voice” is often bandied about but if there is one person who certainly deserves this appellation, it is Lauren Daigle. Blessed with a rich, soulful alto tone, Daigle is one of the most popular Christian artists in America. She has dropped several hit singles like Look Up Child and You Say. She has also won several awards and is the first artist in history to top all five of Billboard’s main Christian charts simultaneously. There is, therefore no doubt that this Lauren is a winner in her career. But then, what about her personal life; is she married and who is the lucky fellow? All these and more questions are addressed below.
Details of Her Humble Beginnings
Lauren Ashley Daigle was born on the 9th of September 1991 in Lafayette, Louisiana. She hails from a family of five comprised of her parents, Mark and Laura, and two siblings named Brandon and Madison.
Daigle grew up in Lafayette and fell in love with various genres of music as a child. She also took to singing and utilized her natural talent to serenade her family. The young lady however encountered a setback after she was diagnosed with a viral infection, known as Cytomegalovirus, at the age of 15.
The infection weakened her immune system and she was forced to remain indoors for the next two years. This situation predictably depressed Daigle and her mom signed her up for voice lessons to cheer her up. This trick worked as she did not only rediscovered her love for music but also joined the church choir.
Lauren Daigle’s Career Breakthrough
Upon making a full recovery, Lauren Daigle enrolled at Louisiana State University. She subsequently joined the school choir as well as a soul covers band. The young lady also tried out for American Idol on three occasions (2010-2012) but did not succeed.
She, however, did not despair but continued to sing in her school choir. Daigle’s hard work ultimately paid off in 2013 when she landed a solo contract. She immediately moved to Nashville and dropped her debut album titled How Can It Be in 2015.
The album was a resounding success. It topped the Billboard Christian Charts and also reached No. 16 on the general charts, fetching the Louisiana native several awards. Since this amazing debut, Lauren Daigle has gone on to establish herself as one of the most popular Christian artists in America.
She has dropped other works including the bestselling 2018 album, Look Up Child. Daigle’s efforts have won several awards. They include the 2019 Billboard Music Awards for Best Christian Album, Best Christian Artist, and Best Christian Song; as well as the 2019 Grammy Awards for Best Contemporary Christian Music Song, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album.
Ellen DeGeneres Show Controversy
In November 2018, Lauren Daigle appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. She had a warm conversation with the iconic personality and also gave a stirring musical performance. Daigle’s appearance later snowballed into a controversy as some fans criticized her for appearing on a show hosted by an openly gay woman.
Several people, however, came to her defense, and she was forced to speak out. The songstress stated it was so sad that some people would condemn Ellen because of her sexuality. She also went on to describe the talk show host as a “joyful”, “beautiful”, and “kind” person.
In a subsequent appearance on another talk show, Daigle was asked for her thoughts on homosexuality. She maintained that she was not God and as such, couldn’t speak on the propriety or otherwise of homosexuality.
Who Is Lauren Daigle’s Husband?
Daigle has never been married. There has also not been any report of her dating anyone. It is, therefore, possible that she is single. It may also mean that the singer is dating someone but chooses to keep it under wraps. Whichever it is, you can trust that we will update you as more details come to light.
Meanwhile, during April fool’s Day of 2019, the crooner shared a cheeky Instagram post in which she unveiled the supposed stud in her life. The stud, however, turned out to be Mr. Potato Head from the Toy Story franchise. Daigle’s post drew hilarious reactions from several of her followers. One described Mr. Potato Head as perfect while another stated that they made a great couple.
