Lauren Daigle will not be performing at this year's Rockin New Year's Eve.

Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser announced yesterday that Dick Clark Productions has decided to pull Daigle from the New Orleans lineup.

Nungesser says other cities offered to host the event with Daigle as a performer but says Daigle was pulled from the lineup and added that Louisiana will not be featured in the worldwide broadcast.

Despite the changes, the city says it is moving forward with plans for the event.

The news comes after Mayor LaToya Cantrell sent a letter to Dick Clark Productions earlier this week asking that the Christian singer be removed from the lineup after she participated in an unpermitted concert in the French Quarter last month.
