Centricity Music artist Lauren Daigle was recently honored with two gold-certified singles from her 2015 debut album, How Can It Be. The feat makes Daigle the first female CCM artist to achieve two gold singles from a debut album.

Her debut Centricity Music album launched both “How Can It Be,” which earned certification for 500K units sold in November 2016; “Trust In You” earned the same recognition in May 2017. Daigle’s label team surprised her with a commemorative presentation and plaque during last week’s Christian Music Broadcasters’ Momentum conference in Orlando.

In 2015 “How Can It Be” earned Gospel Music Association Awards for Song of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year, along with a K-Love Fan Award for Worship Song of the Year. It reached No. 1 on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart, plus No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart. In 2016 “Trust In You” won the GMA Dove Award for Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year and earned Billboard Music Award and GRAMMY Award nominations. It was No. 1 on the iTunes Christian Songs Chart, plus No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs Chart for 19 consecutive weeks.
