The singer was only 15 when she was diagnosed with an illness called the cytomegalovirus.The immune deficiency kept her homebound for about two-years. During this time, Daigle learned how to sing, thanks to her mom who thought voice lessons would keep her from depression. "And I fell in love, it became my healing" says Daigle on finding music during a time of such isolation, "From that space that's where those songs come from. I feel like that experience, I could live a lifetime off of just those two years."
The now 27-year-old now tells everyone "What you think might overcome you, is actually just the place you're supposed to launch from." No better way to say it right there.
