Louisiana's Lauren has made it to national attention Stateside thanks to her superlative single "How Can It Be" and this moving song, written by Paul Mabury, Jason Ingram and Jeff Johnson, is definitely one of the best tracks to be heard on US Christian radio in the last few years. Not that this 12-song album is a one trick pony. "Power To Redeem" features the always wonderful All Sons & Daughters while Lauren's rendition of David Crowder's "Here's My Heart" is as good as the original. Lauren has overcome bouts of serious illness and "My Revival" speaks of spiritual and physical victory. Paul Mabury's production is impeccable, Lauren's vocals are richly expressive, and all in all 'How Can It Be' is an inspiring full length debut from a singer who will surely be here for the long haul.
