Pop star Selena Gomez is raving about a popular Christian singer, Lauren Daigle, and her music, on social media once again.
“This girl is a ball of sun,” Gomez said. “She has an anointing that bursts out ferociously in her voice, words, and music.”
Accompanying Gomez’s message was a clip of Daigle singing her popular tune, Rescue, which ranks No. 2 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart. Daigle’s You Sayhas been No. 1 for 61 weeks.
Directed at Daigle, she wrote: “You and your music are a blessing.”
The Christian singer responded with a peace sign, “Love you, girl!”
Daigle’s song in the clip is at No. 2 on the Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart, and her hit, “You Say,” has been No. 1 for 61 weeks now.
It’s not the first time Gomez has recommended Daigle’s music. Gomez, who has been open about her battle with anxiety and depression, has previously posted Daigle’s music on her Instagram story.
Last year, Gomez posted a video on Instagram Story explaining why she likes Daigle’s song, This Girl. Daigle’s songs, Gomez has said, encouraged her during her battle with anxiety and depression.
“I want to suggest a song for you to listen to if you like it,” Gomez told her fans last year on Instagram. “No worries if you don’t. As some people know, I like to listen to worship music and this song, in particular, makes me feel like I’m talking about that feeling – you know, like, I’m not going anywhere, I’m just showing up.”
“But it’s really hard to not get worked up or upset when you constantly feel like you’re doing the right thing and you’re showing up for people and you’re wanting to be, you know, nice and you’re doing all this stuff but you’re like, ‘Why am I not feeling good?’”
Gomez then shared a clip of This Girl, telling her fans, “Here is the song I feel like I get to sing to Jesus.” Daigle could be heard in the clip, singing, “I’ve been a winding road, oh, I know You know / Sometimes a stranger in my home / Keep going back and forth through the open door / I’m still learning to be still.”
Daigle, Gomez said at the time, is “speaking my language.”
The 28-year-old singer had the most nominations going into the awards show, held in Nashville, Tenn., and marks her second artist of the year win in just three years.
