Abigail Duhon is fast becoming a household name. A rising star in Christian cinema and the music industry, this young woman is soundly capable of the triple treat—acting, singing, and dancing—required by any entertainment industry to succeed. Clearly, she’s hardworking. She’s starred in deeply inspirational movies that have shaken the world (God’s Not Dead franchise, Caged No More, I’m Not Ashamed etc.), opened for artists like Newsboys and For King and Country in national tours since 2013, and worked with the industry’s best such as writers, Chuck Butler (Brandon Heath, Royal Tailor), Jamie Moore (TobyMac), Aaron Rice (TobyMac), Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Britt Nicole), Ahmande “Mondo Grimes” (Nicole C. Mullen), as well as being mentored/coached by former Mouseketeer, Jennifer McGill, and industry veteran, Diane Sheets. Duhon is also a contributor for the Christian Post.
Duhon has steadily risen to a sturdy and formidable place in the Christian Entertainment industry. With two albums under her belt, and her third and self-titled one due to be released May 26th (read the TBAP review here), her influence will likely and quickly grow, especially over the younger generation, as well as continue to win the hearts of the older. Ten, twenty years from now, Duhon could become one of the greats that will affect the world in a strikingly positive way.
This is why we need to pray for Abigail Duhon.
She’s a brave, young woman relentless in showing her faith.
Let us thank Jesus for her boldness and courage in choosing the Christian entertainment industry; she could have decided to go mainstream (this is in no way saying that choosing mainstream is wrong. God sends people there, too). Let us thank God that she obeyed His call to speak of His Word through diverse arts. Let us ask that Jesus give her the strength to continue on the path He is leading her on. Let us pray that Duhon continues to seek the heart of God and remain Spirit-led as she continually steps out in faith to fulfill her destiny. Let us petition God to continually bless her with His serenity, courage, and wisdom.
God bless you, Abigail Duhon! We’re praying for you.
About Abigail Duhon
Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Abigail discovered her passion for music immediately after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the family home and nearly took every natural possession they owned. At only six years old during the crisis, she awoke to hear a song in her heart and wrote out lyrics as a reflection on their sudden circumstances. The song was titled Beautiful, and would become one of her first original songs on her debut album released at the tender age of ten.
A dancer since she was two years old, Abigail quickly incorporated her passion for music with a beat and her Christian lyrics to become one of the youngest teen artists to have a Christian song reach the top 100 Billboard Singles charts in 2014. Her second album, Right Now, combined pop music with EDM and dubstep elements to create an exciting alternative for tweens desiring to listen to a secular sound, but with faith-based lyrics. She was the recipient of the 2015 Best Emerging Artist from the ‘We Love Christian Music’ awards sponsored by NewReleaseToday.com.
In 2013, Abigail was selected to become a cast-member of the television show, iShine Knect, which averages over one-million viewers each week on TBN Network, and other faith-based networks around the world.
Her role as Elizabeth in the 2013 film, This Is Our Time, launched her film career. Then in 2014, she was cast in the worldwide record-setting Christian film, God’s Not Dead, as student, Abby Wheaton. Her work as a featured actor in Camp Cool Kids (2017) and Caged No More (January 2016) show extreme diversity in roles. Two others include God’s Not Dead 2 (April 2016) and I’m Not Ashamed (October 2016), the Columbine High School shooting story. She continues to add to her resume with other independent films.
She has been touring nationally since 2013 for music, opening for popular artists, Newsboys and For King and Country, while also participating in The Millennial Tour, a teen artist lineup national tour. Her 50+ concerts have been seen at festivals like Creation Northeast and Northwest, Freedom Festival Jacksonville, Sonshine Festival, ICRS Main Stage, iShine Fall and Winter tours, Ichthus Festival, Amplifyfest, Lifest, and Lifelight Festival South Dakota.
She has worked with Dove award winning and Grammy nominated writers Chuck Butler (Brandon Heath, Royal Tailor), Jamie Moore (TobyMac), Aaron Rice (TobyMac), Ian Eskelin (Francesca Battistelli, Britt Nicole), and Ahmande “Mondo Grimes” (Nicole C. Mullen). She is mentored and vocal coached by former Mouseketeer, Jennifer McGill as well as industry veteran Diane Sheets.
