Popular Christian artist Lauren Daigle surprised a young Christian contestant during her audition at American Idol.
The 20-year-old Megan Danielle grew up close to her grandfather Chuck, he was the most important person to her. It is her grandfather who always urged her to use her singing talent to glorify God. However, a year ago, her grandfather passed away. It was then that she decided to use her talent for the Lord and became a Christian singer.
“There was one show I had one night, and my papa was there, and he pulled me to the side and said, ‘what are you doing baby? This isn’t what you’re supposed to be doing.’ He looked me dead in the eye and said, ‘how can you sing for God and sing for this?’ And then I finally decided to totally switch to Christian music,” Megan recalled.
On this season of American Idol, the young singer who works as a waitress wanted to bring her faith to the entertainment industry. During her auditions for the singing contest, she sang “You Say” by Lauren Daigle. What she didn’t know is that a great surprise awaits her.
The well-known Christian singer came to the studio to witness her performance. While she was singing the chorus of the song, Lauren entered the room and sang with Megan. Everyone was surprised and amazed by their beautiful duet. The young artist gave thanks to the Lord for the surreal moment.
“Thank you, I love you. I feel like this is not even happening. I’d like to thank You, God,” Megan said.
While pop artist Katy Perry commented on Megan’s performance, Lauren learned that her grandfather’s name was Chuck. It was like a divine appointment as Lauren’s grandfather’s name was also Chuck.
“Well, you know God has a sense of humor every once in a while,” Katy, who is a pastor’s daughter, replied.
The aspiring Christian singer received positive feedback from all the judges and went through the next round.
