Growing up in Lafayette, Louisiana, surrounded by gospel, zydeco, blues, and Cajun music, Christian praise & worship singer and songwriter Lauren Daigle was always singing around the house as a child, but it wasn't until a serious illness kept her out of school for nearly two years beginning when she was 15 years old that she turned completely to music as both solace and a profession. Home schooled during that time, music became Daigle's hedge against social isolation, and she began singing at her local church as a praise & worship leader. Blessed with a striking and smoky alto singing voice, she was encouraged to try out for the American Idol television series, which she did in both 2010 and 2012. The stressful and demanding process of trying out for the show taught her a lot of valuable lessons, and she returned home determined to sharpen her writing and singing skills. She began pursuing a Child and Family Studies degree at Louisiana State University, and while there, was asked by a local band to help with vocals on an EP recording project. A demo of the EP somehow made it to the Centricity Music label, and impressed with her vocals, the label signed Daigle as a solo artist in 2013. A debut nine-song EP, How Can It Be, produced by Paul Mabury, was issued by the imprint in 2014.

'Salvation Mountain' Lauren Daigle And Gary Clark Jr. Official Lyric Video - Christian Music Videos
Listen to this amazing song titled ‘Salvation Mountain’ by Lauren Daigle and featuring guitar virtuoso Gary Clark Jr.
“You turn my rags into riches, my mess into marvelous, my broken into beautiful
Like only You can, You take my fear into faith, my hopelessness to happiness
My loneliness into living, it's where You're takin' me, I'm on my way to Salvation Mountain
Yeah, I'm here to be changed, I'm here to be free, I'm on my way to Salvation Mountain”
What an amazing song that reminds us how God can completely turn our lives around. This soulful song is part of Lauren Daigle’s new full-length self-titled album. The project’s first ten songs came out in May, and another thirteen songs were released in September. The song ‘Salvation Mountain’ was written over the course of a road trip with co-writer Jonas Myrin to the eccentric landmark in the California desert.
With her music, Lauren Daigle shares that she wants others to know that God loves His people as they are. “There is a lot of joy in having a relationship with Jesus,” she says.
“And so expressing that kind of sentiment and this lack-of-shame expression of God was so important to me, for people to see Him as this God of love and God of kindness and this God that will meet you in any place that you’re at.”
Lauren Daigle has had huge success with both Christian and contemporary listeners, but she says that she is just getting started. She shares that her most recent album is her most personal one yet, and she is just beginning to find her true sound. We can’t wait to hear more from this talented artist!
We hope that you enjoyed listening to ‘Salvation Mountain’ by Lauren Daigle today!
