-- Up-and-coming teen singer/songwriter and YouTube sensation Lauren Taveras proudly announces the release of her new hit single and music video "Just a Number." The song delivers a strong message of empowerment while the music video takes a fun jab at the current nature of the election process with a satirical take on the recent Obama/Romney debates.
Co-written by Lauren Taveras and Melanie Fontana, inspiration behind this song and video stems from Lauren's conviction for being a voice for her generation which is rarely considered or able to make decisions on issues that affect their future. "Miss L," as she has been dubbed by her fans, also empowers youth to realize age should never hold you back from doing what you love to do.
This fresh new single has a young beat with great vocals, and an urban feel with pop roots that everyone will love. Lauren transcends traditional pop music by putting down lyrics with a purpose
and vocals that set her apart from the rest in her genre. In her single, she encourages kids to take control of their futures by not taking a passive role in their lives, while the satirical video shows a kid’s take on the election process.
“I chose this video concept for two reasons,” explains Taveras. “Firstly, no matter what age you are, you are never too young to use your voice to make an impact. Secondly, the outcome of this election will be shaping my future as a young woman and as a student and I want to remind people of that.”
With over 5 million views on YouTube, 13-year-old Lauren Taveras is an emerging artist whose raw talent and energy has the music scene buzzing with anticipation. Nominated as one of Tween Pop Radio's "Best New Unsigned Artist of the Year" Taveras recorded her first album "Destiny," at the age of 11 years old, showcasing her talent and confidence in her role as an emerging Urban-Pop artist to look out for.
