Lauren explained that her nana was her “first and strongest example of what a woman is supposed to be.” She added, “Who I am as a person is because of her.”

Dee has encouraged Lauren’s pursuit of music and recalls 3-year-old Lauren making up songs and playing instruments. Lauren’s nana even accompanied her to Hollywood and sat in the audience during her performance.
