Lauren Daigle is Christian music's latest success story. Her new studio album, Look Up Child, earned the singer-songwriter her highest charting album and first top 10. Look Up Child, which also debuts at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Christian Albums chart, starts with 115,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 13, according to Nielsen Music. That's the largest overall week for a Christian music album in 2018, and the biggest for any Christian set since the charts began ranking albums by equivalent album units in late 2014.
Recently, Daigle was interviewed on the Dominick Nati Show on iHeart radio. Eight minutes into the interview, after talking about criticism she's got for what she wears while singing worship songs, interviewer Dominick Nati said: "I hate to do this to you Lauren but I usually ask tough questions so is that alright if I ask just a couple of ones that are tougher and you can let me know if you wanna answer them?
She replied: "Ok, cool."
"Well, just 'cos we were talking about Ellen [DeGeneres] ...do you feel that homosexuality is a sin?"
After a pause, she responded: "You know I can't honestly answer on that...I have too many people that I love that, they are homosexual, I don't know. I actually had a conversation with someone last night about it and I was like 'I can't say one way or the other, I'm not God'. So, when people ask questions like that that's what my go to is. I just say read the Bible and find out for yourself and when you find out let me know 'cos I'm learning too."
He replies: "Wow, you're a pro already!"
He then goes on to ask a question about the Me Too movement to which she replied she doesn't think she's been directly affected.
