Bumble, the women-first social networking app with over 65 million users worldwide, has teamed up with two-time GRAMMY®-winning artist Lauren Daigle to provide its users a once-in-a-lifetime experience to spread the message that #AskingForAFriend doesn't have to be scary and that making a new friend can be an exciting adventure. One lucky Bumble user and their BFF will go on an unforgettable adventure in New York City with Lauren Daigle, whose most recent single, "Rescue," inspired the contest.
New and existing Bumble users based in the United States can apply now within Bumble BFF. The grand prize winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to New York, where they will go behind the scenes with Lauren and watch her perform at a secret, intimate venue. Five runners-up will also receive tickets to one of Lauren's upcoming tour dates.
"At its core, music is about connecting with others - whether sharing a favorite song or hanging at a concert (with a couple thousand friends)," said Daigle. "Bumble BFF is similar in a way, in that people can find comfort and connect to others through conversation."
Lauren Daigle is a two-time GRAMMY®-winning artist five-time Billboard Music Award winner, and a two-time American Music Award winner. Her ability to connect with her fans has made her the fastest-selling new artist for her genre of the last decade. Daigle's GRAMMY® Award winning double-platinum single, "You Say," has topped the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts and appeared in the Top 40 of Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Her GRAMMY® Award winning album, Look Up Child, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and has been certified Gold. Her debut album, How Can It Be, has been certified platinum by the RIAA and has produced three certified Gold singles. Daigle's current single, "Rescue," is now available.
"At Bumble, we truly believe that one connection can change the course of your life. Bumble BFF is a platform that has helped many people find incredibly strong communities and support systems. We want to normalize the need to make new friendships throughout every phase in life," said Chelsea Maclin, VP of Marketing at Bumble.
