Daigle announced her special appearance on the show in a Facebook post the day before. While many fans praised her for the move, plenty objected on the basis of DeGeneres' open lesbian lifestyle.
In a recent interview with The Christian Post, however, Daigle contended that she is committed to "going outside the walls of the church" to share the Gospel.
"I think the passage that says, 'Go out into the world and draw people unto Him,' the Great Commission, that's what I think about in regard to the mainstream aspect," Daigle said in the interview. "I wasn't looking at [making my music] as in mainstream versus Christian. I was like, 'OK, what is the purest version of me? Or what is the purest thing that God has written into my spirit and how do I express that? How do I communicate that?"
