VIDEO: Fans applaud Christian singer Lauren Daigle's prime-time TV performance
A performance by Lauren Daigle on a prime-time television show has drawn widespread acclaim from fans.
The 27 year old Christian musician sung her track 'Still Rolling Stones' on The Ellen DeGeneres Show - a popular talk show hosted by comedian Ellen DeGeneres.
Footage of the singer-song writer's rendition has been viewed one-and-a-half million times since it was shared on YouTube.
One Twitter user said: "So, so, so proud of you Lauren Daigle!!! LOVE that we had someone who loves Jesus on Ellen!!"
Another tweeted: "Let's go Lauren!!!!! Representing love and Jesus in mainstream. Mad respect."
Someone else added: "What an amazing opportunity to share your gift on the Ellen Show!"
Taken from her latest album, 'Still Rolling Stones' features in its chorus the words: "All at once, I came alive. This beating heart, these open eyes.
"The grave let go. The darkness should have known. You're still rolling stones."
I am so pleased that most of the comments are positive and not judgemental for appearing on a mainstream TV show. The world needs more Christians to engage, show love and not be afraid of backlash. Good job!— Mount Calvary (@MountCalvaryMin) October 25, 2018
Last month, Premier reported how the Louisiana musician reached third place in the American album chart with 'Look Up Child'.
Her track 'You Say' also featured on BBC radio DJ Zane Lowe's Beats 1 list in association with Apple Music's World Record playlist.
