Lauren Daigle performed the national anthem Monday night for the College Football Playoff National Championship in New Orleans, Louisiana, where she received a standing ovation from everyone in attendance, including President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.
In an Instagram story, Daigle repeatedly revealed how “nervous” she was as she walked onto the LSU field.
When she took the stage, the popular Christian singer was announced as a two-time Grammy Award-winner and Louisiana’s own as she went on to give a bluesy performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
Daigle performed at 7:15 p.m. local time just before kickoff at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The “You Say” singer wore a mauve blazer and matching flared pants and short laced cream-color blouse.
TV star Reagan Charleston Thomas gifted Daigle a Tigers ring to represent the LSU team mascot from her jewelry collection, Reagan Charleston Jewelry, and the singer sported the ring during her performance as seen below.
The Trumps smiled and cheered after Daigle’s performance and the 28-year-old likewise cheered.
Daigle attended LSU before becoming a singing sensation and she was ecstatic after the LSU Tigers beat the Clemson Tigers in a 42-25 victory. The game marked LSU’s first national championship since 2007.
