Acadiana native Lauren Daigle is the hottest artist in the history of Christian music. Her album "Look Up Child" has made history. It's been number one on Billboard Magazine's Christian Albums chart for 56 weeks.

That's a new record, surpassing Switchfoot's "The Beautiful Letdown", which reigned at #1 for 38 weeks in 2004-05. The single, "You Say" has topped the Hot Christian Songs chart for 65 weeks, also a record.

I had the pleasure of attending one of her recent performances with the Acadiana Symphony. It was an uplifting evening! Lauren returns to Acadiana next July 18th, bringing her world tour to the Cajundome.
