At the 2015 Sunfest in Florida, Keith Urban, the Australian music icon, teamed up with a young American Idol participant, Lauren Spencer-Smith, for a spellbinding performance. They covered Adele’s version of Bob Dylan’s classic, “Make You Feel My Love.” This event was particularly notable because Lauren was just eleven years old at that time.
Keith Urban often surprises his audience by inviting fans to sing with him. During this event, he chose Lauren, a young but immensely talented singer. Her ability to perform so confidently alongside Keith, in front of a large crowd, was remarkable considering her young age.
Lauren was born in Portsmouth, England, and moved to Canada with her family at the age of three. She grew up on Vancouver Island, where her love for singing became evident early on. Lauren first showcased her vocal talents in a school talent show when she was six years old.
Lauren started her YouTube channel at the age of eleven, and it has since grown to attract over 702,000 subscribers. Her channel is a mix of cover songs and her original compositions, drawing in millions of viewers. This platform has been instrumental in displaying her growing musical prowess.
