Lauren Daigle, one of the decade's best-selling contemporary Christian musicians, has an amazing gift for crafting songs which bring us along on her journey of faith in a beautiful and inspiring way. On Saturday, the singer took her gift to a maximum security prison in Illinois, not only blessing its inmates with her music, but with a powerful word for them. Hear her breathtaking voice and powerful word in the video at the end of this article.
"Yesterday was one so unexpected...It was a day my eyes had never seen and will never be able to unsee. We sang songs with inmates whose voices carried deeper into our hearts than the echo of a microphone will ever release. I saw hope in the face of the hopeless, joy in the wake of sorrow, wealth in the gap of depravity, and life in the midst of death," Daigle said in a Facebook post about the performance.
"These people have stories, and they also have souls. I watched heaven befriend those who are often forgotten. With each day that passes, may I never take for granted what it is to walk around [like] a free man."
