LAUREN’S TIME

Recently Lauren gained popularity due to her cover of Sara Evans’ song, “A Little Bit Stronger.” The song was initially released in 2011, but Lauren’s version is breathing new life into it.

In the track, she shows off her talent, which includes strong vocal skills for someone of her age. She also conveys the emotion of the lyrics well, which is surprising for someone with not much life experience.
