Lauren performs her heart out

Lauren's wish to be a singer

“ I wanted my wish to bring the community together ”


- Lauren

Lauren, a 12-year-old who is battling a gastrointestinal disorder, wished to be a singer. Her wish came true in superstar fashion with VIP treatment beyond her wildest dreams. There was a day of pampering at The Ritz-Carlton Resorts of Naples before her arrival at Sugden Community Theatre (The Naples Players). The red carpet was lined with Lauren's biggest fans, friends, family and Make-A-Wish supporters). Flanked by bodyguards, Lauren worked the red carpet. The opening act at her concert was the St. Francis Xavier Catholic School choir. When Lauren took the stage, the audience was ecstatic. She lit up the room with her beautiful voice and melted the hearts of everyone. Lauren said she wanted, "to be a singer to bring the community together" and she certainly did. #peacelovemusic #laurenswish
