Christian Singer Lauren Daigle Set to Perform For Jimmy Fallon

Like many females of the Christian persuasion, I have had Lauren Daigle’s latest album, Look Up, Child on repeat for daaaayyss. To be fair, I did the same thing with her 2015 album How Can It Be. The girl’s lyrics just speak to my heart in a way that at time, have been truly life-giving. So, I’ve been thrilled that Look Up, Child has been so popular that it’s topped even the non-Christian charts, recently placing third on Billboard’s top 100. Whoop whoop!

Lauren Daigle further raised her profile, and spread the word of God’s love to more people last week when she did a stunning performance of her song “Still Rolling Stones” on the Ellen Show. Girl can SING and the live performance for Ellen’s audience was amazing! She sang God-focused lyrics that reached millions on TV and the internet; the YouTube video of that performance has nearly 2 million views! The song says, in part:

“Six feet under
I thought it was over
An answer to prayer
The voice of a Savior
Rise up (rise up)
Rise up (rise up)
All at once I came alive
This beating heart, these open eyes
The grave let go
The darkness should have known
(You’re still rolling rolling, you’re still rolling rolling oh)
You’re still rolling stones.”

Needless to say, I was super excited when I saw this morning that on Wednesday next week (November 7, 2018), Lauren will be performing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon! I am freaking out excited for her because a) I love Jimmy Fallon and b) it’s such a HUGE platform to spread the gospel!!

Lauren Daigle spilled the beans on her official instagram, saying,

“SURPRISEEE!!!! Personal dream. So excited to announce that I will be on Jimmy Fallon! I always said that if I ever make it on The Tonight Show I would run and slide on his desk. That would be my dream entrance. Who knows what could happen Tune in Wednesday 11/7.”

LOLOL. I kind of hope she holds back on the sliding on to his desk, but who knows? She could probably pull it off!

I am sure she will probably perform the show-stopping “Still Rolling Stones” again, but I am secretly hoping she might bust out “You Say,” which has been personally speaking to me big time these last couple months about my identity in Christ. It’s a GREAT song for our young daughters to listen to as well. The lyrics say:

I keep fighting voices in my mind that say I’m not enough
Every single lie that tells me I will never measure up
Am I more than just the sum of every high and every low?
Remind me once again just who I am, because I need to know (ooh oh)
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
I believe
The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me
In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity, (ooh oh)
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
And You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe (I), oh I believe (I)
What You say of me (I)
Oh, I believe
Sound familiar to you, Mamas? It’s like she’s inside my head!
Whatever she sings, I am so excited that Lauren Daigle is performing on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and I can’t WAIT to tune in…and watch it over and over again on YouTube. I’m praying for you, Lauren, as you take the message of God’s love and Christ’s salvation to this huge platform.
