Christian contemporary singer/songwriter Lauren Yost began her career in singing at age eight. Her first solo was sung in church, and after that invitations to sing in musicals and at other churches arose. At twelve years old, Lauren competed in a local radio talent competition. After winning, she sang on air and at a nearby amusement park. When she received an opportunity to record her first album in a recording studio, Lauren gratefully began writing songs to be included in her album, which she completed at age fourteen. Eventually, she sang at several concerts and began leading worship for her church youth group.
God has always been first in Lauren’s life and still continues to be first as her career progresses. Her music is all Christ inspired and comes from the Bible. It encourages people of all ages to step out of their comfort zone and “shine” for Jesus, as one of her songs says. Lauren is committed to worshipping God with her whole heart and to allowing Him to open and close doors according to His plan for her life. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future.’” Jeremiah 29:11.
