She led the field with six Dove nominations, winning three for Pop/Contemporary Album, Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for her multi-platinum and Grammy-winning crossover single “You Say.”
Her 2018 album, “Look Up Child,” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart and has broken chart records for weeks atop the Top Christian Albums chart. She won song of the year for her multi-platinum and Grammy-winning crossover single “You Say,” which has introduced her to much wider audiences in the last year.
Daigle’s music has appealed to a growing audience in just the last year.
“Just to see the support of so many people, it’s really, really moving. It’s overwhelming,” Daigle said after winning song of the year.
