Lauren Daigle made her late night debut last night as she graced The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon stage performing her song “Look Up Child.”
The Billboard Music Award winner took to the stage Wednesday night to sing the title track from her new hit album which reached number one of the Top Christian Albums chart and number three on the Billboards Top 200 chart.
The Christian artists defended her decision to perform on the openly-gay talk show host's show in a radio interview saying, “I think the second we start drawing lines around which people are able to be approached and which aren't, we've already completely missed the heart of God.”
She continued, "I don't have all the answers in life, but one thing I know is that I can't choose who I'm supposed to be kind to and who I'm not, because that's the mission right? Be who Christ was to everyone as well."
Daigle’s performance on The Tonight Show was met with much more excitement following her defense, many people excited that a Christian artist is getting mainstream publicity.
