Lauren Daigle Performs New Songs on TODAY Show

By Movieguide® Contributor

Lauren Daigle stopped by the TODAY show as a part of her Kaleidoscope tour to perform two songs from her newest album.

The singer appeared on the show last Wednesday, performing “These Are The Days” and “Be Okay,” both of which appear on her recently released “Lauren Daigle” album.

The self-titled album was released earlier this year, with the first half coming in May and the last 13 songs in early September. 

“Lauren Daigle” marked a notable shift for the musician, departing from worship music into the pop sphere. The songs, however, remain inspired by Christianity and God’s fingerprints on Daigle’s life.

“I felt like there was this freedom that really came out throughout the writing process,” Daigle told the Des Moines Register of branching away from the worship genre. “Did this record feel vulnerable? Did I feel vulnerable sharing it? It wasn’t the intimidating vulnerability, because there’s that type of vulnerability. It was more like, ‘Oh, finally there’s freedom. I can share with the world more pieces of who I am.’ There’s a delight in that.”

Her inspiration for the album came after she experienced anxiety, depression and loneliness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“During COVID, there was so much despair,” Daigle shared with Relevant Magazine. “I started writing these songs because I needed these songs to pull me out of that. I needed God to come and breathe on this experience for me, to remind me of how life can begin again.”

Her TODAY show performance comes in the middle of her Kaleidoscope tour to celebrate her new album. The tour began September 6 in Memphis, Tennessee, and is making its way all over the country before ending in the South in Greenville, South Carolina, in December.

Movieguide® previously reported on Daigle’s newest album:

Lauren Daigle recently released the deluxe version of her self-titled album “Lauren Daigle,” and while it’s her first album that isn’t purely worship, she says it’s most vulnerable project she’s ever released.

“I felt like there was this freedom that really came out throughout the writing process,” Daigle told the Des Moines Register. “Did this record feel vulnerable? Did I feel vulnerable sharing it? It wasn’t the intimidating vulnerability, because there’s that type of vulnerability. It was more like, ‘Oh, finally there’s freedom. I can share with the world more pieces of who I am.’ There’s a delight in that.”

By moving away from the genre that launched Daigle into popularity, she could address issues like mental health, which she would otherwise have struggled to tackle.
