Christian singer Lauren Daigle took the top honor at the K-LOVE Fan Awards on Sunday and during her acceptance speech, she asked for prayers for her grandfather.

Daigle received “Artist of the Year” and “Female Artist of the Year” awards at the fan-voted awards show.

“I’ll try not to cry but I want to honor my grandfather,” Daigle said in her acceptance speech. “He’s 86 years old and he has knees that are giving him a hard time and shoulders and a back that, it all kinda needs to be replaced.”

The Louisiana native then asked if those in attendance would keep her loved one in their prayers.

“So if ya can be praying for someone, that’s the man,” she declared.

Daigle added, “He drove nine hours to be here.”

While accepting the “Artist of the Year” award at the Grand Ole Opry, the 27-year-old singer said: “This has been an incredible year. I just want to give so much glory to the Lord. He has taken the record so far and wide.”
