"Miami native Lauren Jauregui, with her mature, smoky voice, brings a fierce and feisty flavor to Fifth Harmony. A lover of Journey, Paramore, and The Script, as well as Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera, Lauren first remembers singing at a karaoke party at age two, but other than a few school talent shows and a fifth-grade performance of the National Anthem, most of her singing was done in private. "Music had always been a huge part of me but I never had the means to do anything about it," she says. By the time Lauren was 16, The X Factor had debuted. "I ended up trying out because I wanted Simon's approval. It had been my dream to sing for Simon and for him to tell me I was good.""
