“You Say,” by multi-award-winning CCM songstress Lauren Daigle, is a stunning piano-led ballad about God’s positive response to every one of our doubts and insecurities.

When we are lonely, God is there. When we feel weak, God is strong. Especially encouraging words in an era of anxiety and uncertainty.

Daigle’s energetic, full-throated delivery on this selection falls somewhere between that of Adele and Lady Gaga. Its universal message gives the song plenty of crossover pop potential, especially if it gets picked up for television or film soundtracks.

“You Say” was released as the debut single from Look Up Child, Daigle’s second full-length album for Centricity Music. It follows the Platinum-selling How Can It Be that propelled the 27-year-old into CCM stardom.
