Last night the 47th Annual GMA Dove Awards were held at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. Awards were handed out in 44 categories, plus special award categories. The sold-out show was hosted by for KING & COUNTRY and Tye Tribbett and featured performances by TobyMac, Tamela Mann, Hillsong UNITED, Matthew West, Natalie Grant and more. But the night went to Christian singer, Lauren Daigle.
For the second year in a row, Lauren Daigle won three awards at the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards on Tuesday night, including artist of the year.
During her acceptance speech, Lauren raised her hand and thanked God for giving her the gift to be able to sing songs to Him.
Daigle went from winning the new artist award last year to the top award this year, a seemingly overnight success for the popular singer and songwriter. Her 2015 debut album How Can It Be earned her a Grammy nomination as well.
Lauren’s Christmas album will be available Oct. 21st
