May was an exhilarating month for Lauren, brimming with exciting announcements and new music. She unveiled her new single ‘That Part’, and also revealed the release date for her debut album ‘Mirror’, set for July 14th. In addition, she announced a MASSIVE 42-city global headline tour aptly named ‘’Mirror Tour’, which begins in Portsmouth on June 6th. The tour has already achieved significant success, with several sold-out shows in the UK, leading her to add a second date in London due to high demand.
The myriad of events that transpired in May serve as a testament to the years of relentless dedication and effort put forth by Lauren and her team. This perfect blend of hard work and talent has culminated in the here and now, solidifying Lauren Spencer Smith’s status as a formidable powerhouse in the music industry.
We go waay back with Lauren, dating all the way to September 2018. A nostalgic trip down memory lane takes us to videos on her YouTube channel where she beautifully covered Sing2Piano tracks of Coldplay and Pink.
Not to mention a viral clip of her covering Adele with her dad in April 2019:
Adding only more fuel to the fire in 2020 was the TikTok surge (below chart.) A groundbreaking phenomenon in the music industry, playing a pivotal role in accelerating Lauren’s popularity and recognition. Her journey saw an impressive upswing, almost directly mirroring the meteoric rise of this digital platform’s popularity. Today she hails over 5.5 Million followers on the platform.
