“Here is the review from the Voice Council on my performance: Kudos: Lauren Tate – “Use Somebody” (Cover) – Nice arrangement of a tune by Kings of Leon. As a female singer with a Pop/R&B style, covering a male indie/rock band tune helps to make this “her own” and gives it an original twist. Add to it the R&B vocal embellishments which Lauren’s voice easily cascades in opportune moments throughout the song and she has definitely re-invented this song nicely. AND being 13 years old singing for just a year, we have here a wonderful beginning of what I hope to be a great road ahead for her professionally.”
