Grammy-nominated Christian singer Lauren Daigle was the featured artist on "Good Morning America" Thursday where she revealed that her single helped a rape victim overcome suicidal thoughts.

"There was a girl the other day that said she was raped for 12 years or something and went to commit suicide like seven times, she just tried it," Daigle told GMA host Ginger Zee before her performance on the show.

"The record ['You Say'] pulled her out of that space she was in," Daigle said, crediting the "power of music."

During the Facebook Live interview, the Louisiana native also talked about her favorite Christmas traditions, such as "eating shrimp and grits."

"'Little Drummer Boy' I love the words of that song. I love 'Oh Come Oh Ye Faithful and The Christmas Song'" Daigle said of her favorite Christmas songs.

 

She then took the GMA stage and passionately performed her hit Christian single "You Say" which is a song, she says, about owning one's "identity."

The 27 year old recently came under fire for comments she made in an interview on "The Domenick Nati Show" for iHeart radio. Daigle was asked about her stance, as a Christian, on homosexuality and whether it's a sin.
