Prayers up for a spiritual revival in this land.
This, and so many other things, give me hope for the world. I’m gonna look for and check out the album now! ^_^
I’d rather buy her stuff than obama ass-kisser McCartney’s crap.
Amen and amen.
Pleasant background music, but about the only words she says is the title.
She probably repeats it some 30-40 times.
For those who watch American Idol, Lauren Daigle tried out for American Idol in 2010 and 2012 after she was encouraged by her family to compete in the singing competition.
She was cut just before the final 24 contestants in 2010,did not make Hollywood in 2011, made it through the Hollywood round in 2012, but was cut in the first Las Vegas round in 2012.
Which just goes to show that the judges do not always choose the right person.
Just listened to several songs on the album. Will be buying it tomorrow. “You Are Still Rolling Stones” is an awesome song. The whole album is great.
Have only heard her a few times on the radio.
Sounds like Adele.
She had her first American Idol audition posted on her website. It was genuinely awful. She definitely progressed between then and her first time going through.
