Daigle was a contestant on American Idol in 2010 and 2012 but launched into fame when she signed a music contract with Centricity Music and released her first single, “Light of the World.” This led her to traveling around within the Christian music scene. In 2015, she released her album, How Can it Be, which produced three No. 1 songs, including “O’Lord,” “First” and her GRAMMY nominated song, “Trust in You.”


Her triple-platinum song, “You Say,” was a part of her Look Up Child album – and was the No. 1 longest running track to debut on any weekly Billboard chart. So far in her career, Daigle is a two-time GRAMMY, four-time American Music Award and a seven-time Billboard Music Award winner. She has a strong fan base with more than a billion worldwide streams and sold-out shows in multiple countries including the United States, England, France, Australia and Germany.
