Lauren Daigle accepts the top Christian artist award at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards Presented by Marriott Bonvoy.
Billboard, thank you so, so much. This is the award that I just … I treasure from the bottom of my heart. I love it so much because it’s not a popularity contest. The Billboards are because fans show up and show support for the thing that I love to do. I love to get to sing. So thank you, thank you, thank you, it means the world. It’s been a long time since I have released a record, and just to have the sheer delight of putting art into the world that you love, and that I made with the most incredible team. I cannot sing their praises enough. It’s been really, really beautiful to put music out that reaches the souls of man. That’s the thing that I want to do for the rest of my life. I just want to thank you for your support. Thank you to the Billboards. Thank you, Lord, for letting me do this again. And I’ll see you all very soon. Cheers.
