Lauren Daigle and JOY FM Bring Joy to St. Louis Residents
Our St. Louis residents were given a very rare opportunity to spend the day with St. Louis Christian radio station, JOY FM and Centricity Music recording artist, Lauren Daigle. As Lauren is preparing the launch of her new album, Look Up Child, she is taking trips around the country visiting radio stations and spending time with her fans. She’s started a series called “Adventure Days” that documents these visits. Lauren’s “Adventure Day” in St. Louis included a stop by JOY FM for a fan listening event and the station invited our residents to be part of that experience.
JOY FM has been an important voice in creating awareness about Mercy Multiplied in the St Louis and surrounding area through their sponsorships, involvement with our Mercy 5K and Family Walk, and more. When our residents learned they had been invited by JOY FM to attend, they were over the moon with excitement.
Once they arrived at the station, residents enjoyed a sneak peek of Lauren’s newest album and the stories behind the songs she wrote. One of our Mercy staff members said, “The listening experience was truly an intimate time of Lauren sharing her heart behind her new songs and inspiration for her upcoming album. Our residents had a memorable day as they listened to Lauren share and then had an opportunity to ask questions. There were a few songs that touched many girls in different ways, but one particular song really resonated with most of the girls. They shared how the lyrics really spoke to them.”
After the listening event, Lauren surprised each of the residents with a special Look Up Child t-shirt. Next, it was off to the unique City Museum for lots of fun and adventure. On Lauren’s Instagram story she said, “I’m going to get in touch with my child-like nature.” One of the staff members mentioned, “Our girls met Lauren at the museum and they had the opportunity to personally get to know her. They had a blast as they played around the museum! Lauren would go down the slides, climb in tunnels, and walk through caves with the girls just having fun with them.”
Thanks again to JOY FM for your continued support and for making this day happen. You have given our residents a day they will remember forever! And thank you to Lauren Daigle for making our residents feel special and showing them such kindness and love.
