Lauren Daigle and Tori Kelly Win Grammy Awards
Christian musicians Lauren Daigle and Tori Kelly have had success at the Grammy Awards, with each of the stars taking home two Grammys each.
Both received their awards in the Christian and Gospel categories.
Lauren Daigle won the award for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance with her song You. She also won best album with Look Up Child – for which she beat Elevation Worship, Jesus Culture, Michael W. Smith and Zach Williams.
Daigle has risen up the charts in terms of popularity, too. She was under fire for her comments about homosexuality, as well as performing on the Ellen De Generes show, which dramatically lifted her profile.
She reached the top place in Christian charts in America, as well as finding her way into the secular charts with ‘You Say’, which reached number 34 in the Hot 100 in January.
Daigle was nominated in 2015 for her debut album “How Can It Be,” and received another nomination in 2016 for her song “Trust In You.”
Tori Kelly was also nominated in 2016 for Best New Artist. The pop singer who released a gospel album last year won for both gospel categories. She won Best Gospel Album for “Hiding Place” and Best Gospel Song for “Never Alone.” Multiple Grammy Award winner Kirk Franklin produced the album and co-wrote the hit song.
