This week, Megan Danielle, a contestant on this season of American Idol, wowed the crowd and the judges with her rendition of a song you might know from listening to BRIGHT-FM: “Holy Water” by We The Kingdom.

Megan is a 21 year-old from Georgia and she hasn’t been shy about sharing her faith on the show. The singer kicked off her experience on the competition with a declaration of her faith by auditioning with Lauren Daigle’s song, “You Say.”

The best part? Lauren Daigle surprised Megan at her audition, and it brought tears to everyone’s eyes! If you missed it, you can watch that video below, but make sure to grab some tissues first.

Megan managed to make it through Monday night’s round of eliminations, securing herself a spot in the top 12. How did she celebrate? She sang another Lauren Daigle song, “Thank God I Do.”

It’s incredible to watch someone so young share their faith on such a big stage. The songs Megan has chosen are full of words and Truth that so many need to hear, and her boldness of faith means that thousands upon thousands are hearing the hope of Jesus sung over them with each passing episode.

Maybe you need to hear that hope too…If that’s you, take a listen to Megan’s various covers below, and bring that same encouraging music with you wherever you go by streaming BRIGHT-FM.
