This past weekend, at a backstage gathering before a sold-out performance at Bridgestone Arena, two-time GRAMMY Award winner Lauren Daigle was recognized for the impact that both her music and philanthropy have had on millions of people worldwide. The Global Impact Honor, presented by the iconic singer/songwriter and musician Amy Grant, distinguished Daigle as a genre trailblazer and ambassador: a role that she's embraced throughout her almost decade-long, record-breaking career.
 
"I'm so thrilled to be here tonight and so proud of you. You have literally impacted millions of people around the world," Grant said as she presented the honor. "This is the last night of the tour that has taken 20 months to wrap up and during that time you've shared your faith, and you've done it tirelessly. So for using your platform to share your faith in such an open way and welcoming millions of people around the world, for the work you've done having children sponsored, and just using your gifts in such an amazing way, I'm proud to give you this honor."
 
Daigle's impact on the genre is undeniable. Worldwide, she has sold over one million concert tickets on three continents, including 170 sold-out headline performances, and has donated over two million dollars to 25+ organizations from those sales alone. Her music has been streamed over five billion times, and she has over 15 million social media followers. She has performed on nearly every network morning, daytime, and late-night show, as well as multiple awards shows, and competition shows including The Voice, American Idol, and America's Got Talent - a feat no other artist in the genre has accomplished since Amy Grant's breakthrough in the 90s.
