Lake Charles native, Lauren Daigle, has made a name for herself in the Christian music world. After multiple attempts on American Idol, Daigle finally made it to the Hollywood round in 2012, but was the first to be cut when going to Las Vegas.

That didn't stop Daigle. She would go on to release multiple albums and even chart an album at number one on the Billboard Christian charts. Not only did she chart for the Christian Billboard, but she also crossed over into pop with the song You Say. The song landed her at 29 on the Billboard Top 100 chart in 2018. She has won multiple Dove Awards, two Grammys, and has become the highest charting female singer for an album in over 20 years.

Daigle is set to come back to Louisiana for New Year's Eve for the city's New Year's Rockin' Eve. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell has issued a letter to the organizers of the party stating her disagreement with Daigle performing for the celebration this year.

According to Mayor Cantrell, Daigle had taken part in an unapproved and unpermitted event last month in Jackson Square. The event was a worship rally Daigle showed up to perform during. Mayor Cantrell stated in her letter to the fact that this happened and therefore she shouldn't be allowed to perform, nor have any of the promotions or impact this event would give her for performing.
