Christian Singer Lauren Daigle Discusses Hitting ‘Rock Bottom,’ Mental Health Struggles | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Christian recording artist Lauren Daigle recently revealed her mental health struggle as she debuts her new album, "Thank God I Do."

    The Grammy Award-winning artist shot to popularity with the hit single "You Say" in 2018. The song helped her album "Look Up Child" debut at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, making it the highest-charting Christian album by a woman in more than 20 years.

    Daigle recently spoke to People about what's been going on with her since her rise to crossover stardom. "When I was 16 I had this vision of that tour, and I could see the crowds, the lights - everything. Then it all dismantled," the 31-year-old singer told the outlet.

    She said the COVID pandemic contributed to her state of mind. "You combine the disappointment with grief and loss and the state of the world ... I felt like I didn't know myself anymore. I started developing panic attacks," Daigle went on. "I found myself at a rock bottom."

    The artist announced earlier this year that she was partnering with mainstream label Atlantic Records and that her latest LP would include more secular songs. The self-titled album was released on May 12.

    "I'd just be writing songs or coming up with different melodies and lyrics, and I remember thinking, 'This is different than what people have known of me in the past, but not different from myself,'" Daigle told People.

    "For all the fans that have been with me in my journey from the very, very, very beginning, this is no different than a 'You Say' moment for me. These are other little pieces of me that you're now going to get to learn of as well."

    Daigle said, "Each song fell in a box of soul and spirit."

    "There's this Bible verse that says, 'The word of God is alive and active, sharper than any two-edged sword. It can cut through bone and marrow, soul and spirit.' And I'm like, 'The soul and spirit, they're so intertwined,'" the singer said.

    "Once this started to happen [as I was writing], I was like, 'That would be a song that I would write from the soul for the soul, and this is a song that I'd write from the Spirit for the spirit; these songs of heartache and longing and difficulty and joy and newness and all that, they're coming from this soul lane, but there's these other God songs that are also me as well."

    She called her new album a "rebirth process."

    "My whole world fell apart, and I had to learn how to find myself again," Daigle said.
