Lauren Daigle's "O' Lord" Third Single To Achieve No. 1
Grammy-nominated and multi-Dove Award-winning artist Lauren Daigle's latest single "O' Lord" is the third single to achieve No. 1 from her RIAA-certified Gold debut album How Can It Be. The single, released on Sept. 15 last year has hit No. 1 on Mediabase Christian Audience, the Mediabase AC Published, and Nielsen ACM Monitored charts.
Daigle commented on the news saying, "Wow! Five singles in. Who would have known? I'm so grateful that people are still connecting with these songs."
"'O' Lord' is a song that is for my darkest times. If it has brought any hope, then it has served its purpose. Thank you to my team, the radio programmers, and the listeners for making space in their hearts and giving 'O' Lord a chance."
The artist has had a profound impact on listeners since she released her debut EP in 2014. Her radio singles, "How Can It Be," "First," "Trust In You," "Come Alive (Dry Bones)," and "O' Lord" have each reached the Top 5, with "First," "Trust In You," and now "O' Lord" reaching No. 1.
On Thursday, Daigle performed "O' Lord" along with other songs at the NAMM Night of Worship held at the National Association of Music Merchants's annual NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif., in a performance that was broadcast online.
The artist posted a short video clip on her social media taken from the audience which you can view here. One fan, Laura, commented on the performance, "Amazing worship, thank you Lauren! May God continue to give you words for each new song."
Lauren Daigle has received two Grammy nominations, first in 2016 for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for her album How Can It Be, and the second in 2017 for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for her single "Trust In You." In addition, the artist won a Billboard Award in 2017 for Top Christian Artist, and an American Music Award as Favorite Artist (Contemporary/Inspirational)
Daigle has currently not announced any new tour dates but fans are eagerly awaiting more news.
