Flanked by a Gospel choir, Christian recording artist Lauren Daigle performed her song “Hold on to Me” for the finale of NBC’s “The Voice” Tuesday night.
Daigle ended the song by ad-libbing a little, singing, “There is hope for the world / there is hope for the world / all you gotta do is hold on / lemme tell you now / just hold on / hold on to me.”
The “You Say” singer-songwriter took to her Twitter account Thursday afternoon to say she is “still on cloud 9 after an incredible time” on “The Voice.”
“There are so many moving pieces in days like this, and it all happens so fast — but every moment is just so much fun,” she wrote. “Very grateful.”
Daigle went on say her performance Tuesday “was one of my absolute favorites.”
