In the spotlight of the 2023 Dove Awards, Lauren Daigle utilized her platform not only to express gratitude but also to address the ongoing crisis in Israel. Her words echoed a message of humility and purpose:“Don’t look at me, look at Jesus. I am just so thankful. When they say it takes a team, I really mean that. I wouldn’t stay grounded if it weren’t for the people around me who say, it’s not about you, this is about God. This is about Jesus. My first Christian song I ever wrote was called ‘Shine.’ And I just wanted to leave you with this - God put a light inside of us so we may go out into the world and shine before others so that they can see His goodness. So whatever you do from this moment forward, do it for the goodness of our God, for the glory of our God.
”So as the echoes of 'Thank God I Do' reverberate through the halls of the 2023 Dove Awards, it's more than a triumph for a singular artist; it's a symphony of collaborative brilliance. From Caleb Mallery's directorial vision to Jon Rouzier's meticulous editing, the award-winning music video encapsulates the essence of artistic unity. Lauren Daigle's message amplifies this unity, reminding us that the power of creativity extends beyond accolades— it's a beacon of light, a call to shine for the goodness of our shared humanity.
