With a voice as thick and swampy as the Louisiana bayou in which she was born, Lauren Daigle didn’t start singing in her church choir until she was 16 years old. However, her mom insists she’s been belting out tunes since she was in her crib.
“I wasn’t really sure I could sing, honestly,” Daigle admits. “But [at that time] I felt this passion was a calling placed on my life.”
At age 18, she was asked to lead worship for her church’s youth group. Her talent in that arena brought her to Atlanta, where she joined the 30,000-member North Point Community Church and began leading main services as well as working with youth at NPCC’s camps and special events.
