Keep reading to learn more about singer Megan Danielle and where to follow her now.

Megan Danielle’s powerful voice shows her strength

There’s no doubt about Megan’s powerful voice and the energy she carries when it comes to herself and her religion.

As a Christian singer, Megan got the chance to really be herself on American Idol.

“To be able to showcase you know my Christianity on Idol, and the fact that I want to be a Christian artist, it can be really difficult sometimes just because of the way the world is today. I feel like that’s why God put me here just because he knows how strong I am. It means a lot to me, and I’ll always be blessed to be able to share this on any platform,” she told HollywoodLife.

Plus, the singer has overcome some adversity in her life. She’s from Georgia and has previously worked as a waitress with her mom.

Her parents split when she was a kid, and her dad left the house. She revealed on Idol that she took that very personally, revealing, “I put a lot of blame on myself for my dad leaving. It made me feel kind of worthless like I wasn’t a good daughter or even a good sister.”

Along with her dad leaving, her grandfather passed away about a year ago, and she says he was “the most important person in her life” and definitely “one of her biggest fans.”
