Lauren Daigle Performs Hit Song on The Ellen Show

Lauren Daigle made her Ellen debut on Tuesday when she took to The Ellen Show stage to perform the hit song “Still Rolling Stones” from her new album. 

On Tuesday, award-winning Christian artist Lauren Daigle appeared on The Ellen Show, hosted by Ellen DeGeneres, and had the opportunity to worship God through music. 

Daigle, who met DeGeneres briefly in 2010 at her American Idol audition, serenaded the studio audience singing the lyrics: “Now that You saved me / I sing 'cause You gave me / A song of revival.” 

As Daigle sent praise up to the Lord, she was able to bring church to the Ellen Stage and illustrate her love for Christ in an impactful and engaging way.

After her performance, DeGeneres announced that she would be giving everyone in the audience a copy of Daigle’s new album Look Up Child.

Many are seeing Daigle's appearance on Ellen as a breakthrough in Hollywood and in the music industry for Christians and Christian music.

One YouTube user commented on the video of Daigle’s performance that was posted by “The Ellen Show” channel saying, “I am genuinely surprised to see a christian artist appear on ellen! And i have to say, as a lauren daigle fan, im not complaining! i hope millions of people come to know God as their savior because of this!”

Another person took to social media to express her amazement at Daigle’s performance writing on Twitter, “Such a breakthrough! This is amazing! I really am so thankful, inspired, and proud to be alive to see this! Same age as Lauren& this is happening!! Aww man, she's walking that road, that paved path with His confidence! I am so following after!”

Others, however, have criticized the young artist for agreeing to be on the show since its host, DeGeneres, is openly gay. 

One Twitter user wrote, “Are you gonna even talk about God with Ellen? Or just omit God like in your last CD? Your music is becoming less and less about God. I still love your voice though. I pray you stay true to the Word of God and not compromise to be in the World.”

Another user simply wrote, “Shame on you!!!!!”

Look Up Child, placed number one on the Top Christian Albums chart shortly after its release and placed number three on the Billboard Top 200 list.
