Lauren Daigle Nominated for an American Music Award
Centricity Music's Lauren Daigle has been nominated for an American Music Award (AMA). Daigle has been nominated Favorite Contemporary Inspirational Artist, marking the second consecutive year Daigle has been recognized in the category.
Earlier this month Daigle also earned her first writing and performance credit for a major motion picture with her song "Almost Human." Almost Human was featured on the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack, composed by Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch. Blade Runner 2049 is currently the No. 1 global soundtrack.
Furthermore, Daigle was honored at this year's 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards. She was awarded her seventh award for Best Rock/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year with, "Hard Love," a collaboration with rock band NEEDTOBREATHE. Daigle's previously claimed titles such as Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, New Artist of the Year, and more.
With 18 awards spanning a three-year mainstream carrer, there is no doubt on Daigle’s impact in and beyond the contemporary Christian music. When questioned about her music’s reach, Daigle responded,
“Let’s go into the dark places. Let’s go into the church and let the church permeate into the world. That’s what we’re about. Let’s permeate into the world and show the hopeless that there is hope, show the lost that they can be found, show people who are desperate that there is joy. And so those are the things I want to go and tell the world. So if He’s letting the songs go beyond the church, well to Him be the glory."
The 2017 AMA will be broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday, 19th November 19th on ABC. Voting for the AMA's is now open on the AMA site.
