Keith Urban and Eleven-Year-Old Lauren Spencer Smith Amaze with Their Duet Performance

If you haven’t seen it yet, check out this exceptional rendition of an Adele tune performed at Sunfest, Florida, back in 2015. This performance showcases the talents of Keith Urban from Australia and Lauren Spencer-Smith, a former American Idol contestant, as they deliver a soul-stirring version of Adele’s (originally Bob Dylan’s) “Make You Feel My Love,” to an ecstatic audience. What sets this apart? Lauren was just eleven years old at the time!

Keith shares that for each concert, he runs a contest to choose a fan to join him on stage for a song. This time, he selected two, and was thrilled to introduce Lauren. It’s rare to find adults who can confidently perform alongside Keith Urban before a vast audience, making Lauren’s accomplishment at eleven all the more remarkable.

Lauren’s rendition was spot-on, winning over the crowd instantly. Born in Portsmouth, England, on September 23, 2003, Lauren moved to Canada with her family at the age of three. Growing up in the Vancouver Island region, she showed an early passion for music and performance, participating in her first school talent show by six.

Launching her YouTube channel at eleven, Lauren’s online presence grew steadily, now boasting 702,000 followers, with several videos surpassing a million views. Recently, she’s started sharing original compositions on her channel.

In 2019, she released two collections titled Unplugged Vol 1 and Vol 2. The first volume was a contender for a Juno award in the Adult Contemporary Album Of The Year category, narrowly missing out to Bryan Adams.

Lauren gained widespread attention after participating in American Idol in 2020, reaching the top 20. Her global recognition soared in 2022 with the self-released hit “Fingers Crossed,” achieving top chart positions across several countries. Remarkably, she achieved this success independently, without formal promotion, underlining her significant market value and potential for further growth in the music industry.

Keith Urban, meanwhile, enjoys global fame, not just for his music but also as Nicole Kidman’s husband, with whom he shares two daughters. With twelve studio albums and over fifty music awards, Keith’s career is illustrious. He’s also been candid about his personal battles with addiction, which he has been managing successfully since a rehab stint in 2006.
