Christian artists Lauren Daigle and Tori Kelly won big at the Grammy Awards with the ladies each taking home two Grammys in the Christian and Gospel categories.
It hasn’t been an easy road for either of them and both had to travel the hard way to get to where they are right now.
Daigle won for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song for “You Say,” co-written with Jason Ingram and Paul Mabury, and Best Contemporary Christian Music Album for “Look Up Child.”
Tori Kelly took home “Best Gospel Album” for her album “Hiding Place.” She won “Best Gospel Song” for her song “Never Alone,” which she co-wrote with the well-known Kirk Franklin.
Kelly started singing at the tender age of 12, she signed a record deal and became a big name on YouTube by age 14. Down the road she faced a lot of rejection and a lot of doors closed on her face but now at 26 she finally cracked it. She said, “This is for any girl who’s going through that and feels that they’re not good enough,” she continued. “That’s the immediate thought that came into my head.”
She did not forget to thank Lord Jesus for the win and later took to Instagram, praising God for her accomplishments saying, “I just know that I’m so incredibly grateful & will never forget this feeling. All glory to God,” she wrote.
Lauren Daigle also praised Jesus for giving her the gift of music as she accepted the awards.
“It gives us the opportunity to spread love to the entire world, and so I just wanna thank Jesus for letting me be a part of this, that he’s put a voice in my throat. For everybody who’s a writer, whoever’s involved in all this, I think it’s just such a gift. This community of music, I love it so so much and I’m so incredibly grateful.”
God bless both these awesome talented girls and may they continue winning more big, for the glory of God.
