After a year & a half of dying to see & meet Miss Lauren Alaina, my goal was finally accomplished! :)
This girl is not only amazing live, but she knows exactly how to work a stage & an audience. With her constant flirting with boys in the audience & her quirky little remarks, she is one of the most entertaining performers I have seen. And I need to laugh at how a bee was flying around her on stage when she was singing & she freaks out mid-song & runs away.
I have been keeping updated on my phone to see if Lauren had any autograph sessions or anything at Boots & Hearts, only to find out that my phone was useless. When I was looking for merch to buy, I find out that she indeed did have a meet & greet with people but it was closed off because she had been in there way past her time because she begged to stay & meet her fans. I was crushed to hear that I couldn’t meet the girl that shares the same birthday as me (she’s just a year younger). But I was determined. I sneakily got in right behind the last girls, and the girl who said that the meet & greet was closed let me. I thank that girl so much for not kicking me out because I honestly felt like I was going to cry if I didn’t get the chance to meet her.
When I got up to meet her the first thing to come out of Lauren’s mouth was, “Are you wearing Wonderstruck?!” Haha! She’s actually the most adorable thing! She couldn’t talk much because she’s on vocal rest but I told her how I’ve been a fan of hers since her audition on Idol & how she did amazing on stage earlier that day. Then I asked for a funny picture, an autograph & a hug.
My day was made in that moment.
