Lauren White

This native Washingtonian has always been a child of the arts, beginning her artistic journey at the age of 3 when she was enrolled in her first dance class. By the time she was 12, through the encouragement of her drama instructor, Lauren decided to audition for the role of Dorothy in The Wiz and got the part. This one audition solidified her love for singing and she has never looked back. While continuing to dance, she encountered two other young ladies with the same dream of entertaining the masses. Through the direction of their dance instructor, they formed a group originally comprised of six members. However in the end, there were three, Lauren, Leslie and Nova, known as Visions. This trio helped to broaden Lauren’s vocal ability and musical vision with performances that ranged from singing at the 1996 Presidential Inauguration Ball to major, sold-out R&B concerts and venues nationwide. By the time the group decided to part ways musically, Lauren’s vocal ability had matured and enabled her to move on to the next phase in her career.

Lauren’s experience ranges over a span of 20 years singing across the country and abroad. In 2001, she obtained her degree in Music Business with a concentration in Jazz Voice from Howard University. While there, she was able to incorporate her R&B foundation with her new jazz education. This gave her the confidence and support she needed to step out and become a solo artist. Since then, she has appeared at all the major venues in the Washington DC area and has written and collaborated with both local and national artists. She has also performed background vocals for Shante’ Moore, Kenny Latimore, Skip Pruitt and Anthony Hamilton just to name a few. Her debut solo project titled, The Biography, released in 2009, gives the listener a peek into all the feelings and emotions that make up this eclectic performer.

Being a lover of all genres, Lauren’s core is R&B with a fusion of Soul, Jazz, Rock, Hip-Hop, and Gospel. Some have described her voice as a “Sassy butterfly-wing voice. A bell ring with true clarity,” and “Powerful, with amazing control and multiple octave range.” However, the resounding agreement is that in each performance, Lauren leaves it all on the stage. Her presence is dynamic and commanding, guaranteed to keep the listener engaged, feeling like they are a part of her experience.
