Hot off the back of a captivating performance of the track at this year’s Britain’s Got Talent final in June, Brooklyn-based vocal powerhouse Loren Allred releases her heartfelt anthem ‘Last Thing I’ll Ever Need’ – listen here.
Written by Loren, Michel Heyaca and James Shelley, the track showcases her effortless vocals, and with the Britain’s Got Talent final performance watched and celebrated by over ten million people to date, Loren’s career is soaring.
“I have attended so many weddings over the years and am always smitten by the look in newlyweds’ eyes during their first dance,” Loren said of the track. “Everyone dreams of finding that special kind of love that makes you feel like you are “home” and I wanted to encapsulate that feeling in the lyrics of a song.”
Best known for her jaw-dropping vocal performance in the multi-platinum song ‘Never Enough’ from the Oscar nominated and Grammy award winning The Greatest Showman soundtrack and film, as well as her duet with Michael Bublé on his 2019 ‘Help Me Make it Through the Night’, Loren is now starting to garner significant recognition, stepping out from behind the curtain and drawing comparisons for her incredible vocal talent with all-time greats Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.
Loren was almost a musical secret until April 2022 when she first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent performing ‘Never Enough’. The story of finally connecting her face to the song, has generated more than 100 million views across all platforms, and launched her into the semi-finals and finals of the competition.
Live, Loren will hit the capital on July 28th with a highly anticipated show at London’s Omeara – Tickets Here – which will come hot off the back of her joining this year’s A Capitol Fourth – the annual televised US Independence Day concert, featuring a celebration of West Side Story‘s 65th anniversary, taking place in Washington DC.
During Loren’s high school years, the family moved from Pittsburgh to Salt Lake City, Utah. Aged 12, Loren discovered her own “belt” listening to the singing styles of her early inspirations, Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, and Toni Braxton. Her first break in music began as a teenager, after YouTube covers resulted in a major record deal with Island/Def Jam that would ultimately be shelved. It provided Loren with lessons on the good and bad of the music business, and the singer-songwriter subsequently decided to take a break.
In 2014, now based in New York, things drastically changed and Loren was asked to record demos for the soundtrack of the film The Greatest Showman. Her demo of ‘Never Enough’ was so beloved by the film’s production team, it was used as the final version for the soundtrack. She had earned her way back into the industry as well as establishing herself as a voice to be reckoned with.
In 2021 and 2022, Loren began to release original music via her EP ‘Late Bloomer’. Singles ‘Til I Found You’ and ‘This Summer’ received overwhelmingly positive reviews. Loren also toured with Andrea Bocelli and David Foster through 2022.
Loren’s recording career includes hundreds of songs, in collaboration with some of the industry’s most decorated songwriters and producers. Some of these songs will sound familiar. Now, with the chance to go out on her own, step out from behind the curtain and be her own artist, the future is extremely exciting.
