Centricity Music is thrilled to announce that Lauren Daigle’s debut album, How Can It Be, has been officially certified Platinum by the RIAA. Released in 2015, How Can It Be is one of only five albums in the Christian genre to attain Platinum status since 2003, and the first from a female artist since 2001.

Daigle’s record-breaking album has received two Grammy nominations and earned her two Billboard Awards and an American Music Award. Three songs from the album, “How Can It Be,” “Trust In You,” and “O’Lord,” have also been certified Gold by RIAA.

“There are moments in life that show you years worth of time and hard work. When they told me ‘How Can It Be’ has been certified platinum, I was overcome with the awareness that every year of my life has built up to this moment and led to this first milestone,” says Lauren. “It could only be made possible by people willing to open up their heart and share their vulnerability with others through music. I’m so incredibly grateful. To all who have supported, you made this happen!”

How Can It Be was quite an introduction for Daigle, who has received critical acclaim and recognition as the fastest-selling new artist for her genre of the decade. She was named Christian Artist of the Year at the 2017 American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, plus Artist of the Year at the 2016 GMA Dove Awards and K-Love Fan Awards. Last year Daigle’s impact crossed genre lines and reached more listeners than ever when she was featured on the soundtrack of blockbuster film Bladerunner 2049, as well as country music legend Reba McEntire’s album. In addition, Daigle was recognized on two of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 lists.

“Having How Can It Be reach Platinum status shows the hard work and dedication from Lauren and her ability to connect with so many people from all over the world,” Centricity CEO Caren Seidle said. “When I first heard Lauren sing in a small church six years ago, she made me sit up and appreciate the sound and the message- it was as if I was the only one in the room. I think everyone who hears Lauren feels that way, like she is speaking to them personally.”
