Lauren Daigle, Blessing Offor Collaborate on ‘These Are The Days’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Multi-time Grammy award winner Lauren Daigle and Grammy-nominated artist Blessing Offor recently teamed up to create a new rendition of Daigle’s hit single, “These Are The Days.”

“Blessing and I met a couple years ago while playing some shows together! That smile you see is one he carries around with him everywhere he goes! So excited that his voice arrived to These Are The Days! Shout out to Dan Muckala as well! Sounds amazing!!” Daigle posted.

As well as collaborating on the single, “Blessing Offor will be joining Lauren Daigle as a special guest on select dates of her highly anticipated Kaleidoscope Tour in 2024. The tour promises to be a celebration of music and community, with Daigle and Offor delivering soul-stirring performances that resonate with audiences of all ages,” per CCM Magazine.

An immigrant from Nigeria and born blind in one eye, Offor uses his platform and foundation to help others who are also visually impaired.

“The Offor Mercy Fund was created with a very simple mission in mind: to provide basic tools to vision impaired children in Nigeria—books in braille, walking canes, magnifying glasses, et cetera. These things are taken for granted in wealthy, Western countries because they are readily available at the click of a button. This is not the case in developing countries, yet these simple items can simply change the trajectory of a child’s life by giving them mobility access to education,” the foundation’s website reads.

Offor said, “I’m launching the Offor Mercy Fund because the private school I attended for a few weeks in Nigeria told my parents that they couldn’t educate a student who couldn’t see the board, even though I passed all the academic exams. I didn’t understand at five years old, but I know it broke my family’s heart.”

“A few months later I left for America and got a world-class education. A few stories, a few songs, a few ups and downs and a few decades later, i’m back in Nigeria,” he continued. “Starting the Offor Mercy Fund is my way of helping fix the broken system that told me that I was unteachable. Of course I want you to help by donating at the LINK IN @offormercyfund BIO, and I also want you to help by sharing this with everyone you can! I wanna change lives, will you help me?!”

You can catch Offor performing on the Movieguide® Awards broadcast on March 7.

Movieguide® previously reported on Daigle:

Lauren Daigle says “joy” is the thing that makes her music resonate with people. 

“The people that played on this record, all the musicianship [and] the collaborative efforts of just joy and keeping music pure in the way we create — I think that’s what people really gravitated toward,” she said while walking the Grammys red carpet. “The sonic space of it all, and just the heart and soul behind it…I think that’s what landed us here.”

When asked what inspires her, Daigle answered, “People, all the way. I walk down the street and see people and…I just get uplifted. I love stories.”

She also pointed to joy again, saying she often prayed during her darker moments: “‘God, I need you to give me joy every single day because that’s the thing that will get me moving,’ so I would say joy inspires me as well.”
