28-year-old Lauren Daigle’s song ‘You Say’ just broke a Christian music record with 62 weeks at number 1 on the charts.

The track passes Hillsong United’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail),” which began its 61-frame rule in December 2013.

“I really pondered the journey of the song ‘Oceans,’ and I remember seeing the impact that song made on so many people. It was just so beautiful to me,” Daigle told Billboard. “I hoped that I could be a part of something that shakes the earth like that song. I didn’t know that would ever happen, and I had no idea that ‘You Say’ would be something that would parallel the life of ‘Oceans.'”

Her accomplishment came days after she announced her first-ever headline arena world tour, starting in Australia.

The song off her album, “Look Up Child,” is about identity. In a video about the story behind the song, Daigle said “You Say” was the first song she wrote after her first album, right after her first Dove Awards Show.

“This song is just a reminder of identity. A reminder that, when I’m weak, He’s strong, so how do I change that and bring that into my everyday life?” she said. “When I feel inadequate, how is it that there’s always these moments where I feel like God just steps in and supersedes my inadequacies.”

She added, “this entire song was so that every single night I would get up on stage and remind myself, ‘No, this is the truth…Don’t get buried in confusion. Don’t get buried in waywardness, just remember to steady the course.'”

Earlier this year, Daigle received six nominations from the Dove Awards. This included Song of the Year for “You Say.”

“I have this call in my heart to reach all people,” Daigle shared with Fox News about why she decided to perform Christian music. “It doesn’t matter if they’re in this block, or that block, my heart is for all people to know and encounter the love of God.”
