Once again, Lauren Daigle visited a maximum-prison bringing the Gospel of Hope to inmates. The singer visited Angola, Louisiana State Penitentiary to share the love of God and to raise funds for the care of inmates.
Recently, Lauren shared an Instagram post of her visit to the maximum-security prison. Angola is the largest maximum-security prison in the United States. It has 6,300 prisoners and 1,800 staff.
In the video, Lauren compassionately spoke to all the prisoners and said, “I appreciate and I love all of you guys. I know that I don’t know you but maybe someday I get to cross paths with you. And if not here then on the other side. In heaven we’ll be able to give each other a big whole hug. Honestly, I care so much about each one of your stories..”

Lauren Daigle Raises $17,000 For The Prisoners of Angola
On Giving Tuesday, Lauren’s team decided to raise funds and partner with Angola. Because of this, they were able to raise $17,000. The funds help provide clothing and phone calls for the prisoners. Phone calls mean the prisoners can make more calls to family and loved ones this Christmas.
Preaching The Gospel
While Lauren brought fun and music to the inmates, her true mission was to bring them Jesus. She boldly shared God’s love with them.
“..instead in the middle of the pain, in the middle of your problems, in the middle of you being the worst of who you are, He comes and He sits next to you in that process,” preaches Lauren.
“He doesn’t point the finger, He doesn’t give you shame. He sits with you. And I think that’s why He’s called the Saviour of the world. He’s not the fixer of the world, He’s called the Saviour of the world. Because He comes to save us and to set us free and rescue us from the things that would have us caught and ensnared and left in bondage. He sets every captive free,” she concluded.
The Message In A Song
Lauren then sang her song “How Can It Be” for them. The song describes God’s unchanging love for everyone despite the failures and mishaps a person has committed in his/her life.
And one man in a wheelchair, who was among the audience was see overcome with emotion.
Indeed, Jesus’ death and resurrection offers them a NEW life. Regardless of what they may have done, God always extends His forgiveness to those who ask. Thankfully, Lauren used her platform to share God’s unconditional love and redemptive power to those society has condemned. No one is too far gone from God! Truly He was there with Lauren that day, extending His free and perfect Grace. To God be the glory!
