Lauren Daigle Reveals How She Chose "Thank God I Do" as the Song Reaches #1

Lauren Daigle

Two-time GRAMMY® Award-winning singer and songwriter Lauren Daigle's single, "Thank God I Do," reaches the #1 position on Billboard's Christian Digital Song Sales this week. The song climbed from #2 position to the pinnacle spot after being on the chart for 7 weeks. "Thank God I Do" is from her forthcoming self-titled album, Lauren Daigle, which is due out on May 12, 2023. 

Daigle reveals how she chose the song. "That song was one of the songs that, when we would share it with people, it was the first song that people would cry to," Lauren tells ABC Audio. "And you look for those responses. Not like this, y'know, Monopoly, chess piece kind of thing, [but] you just look for what's human."

In addition to being a song that made people reach for the Kleenex, Lauren says sonically "Thank God I Do" is reminiscent of her last album, Look Up Child.

"It was the song that was kind of the piggyback ... to my previous project," she explains. "This record that I'm going to put out is a bit different than anything I've done before. So I was like, 'Let's let the first song be the song that people can still say, "Oh, there's Lauren." And then I can bridge to this new place.'"

She adds, "Because I have no interest in creating a whole new thing and leaving the people behind that have been with me all along."
