Lauren Giraldo will be kicking off the new year with a bang!
The former Vine star will release her debut single on Friday, January 27th, followed by a killer international tour. The single will be the first from her EP, which is set to release mid-2017. Then, the 18-year-old will hit the road across the U.S. and Canada, starting in February and ending in March.
“I have waited so long to have the opportunity to release my own original music and have poured my heart and soul into creating it," Giraldo said in a statement. "My single is so close to my heart, everything from the lyrics to the artwork is based on personal experiences and I can’t wait to share it. Touring the country and being able to perform for my amazing fans who have supported me for so long is a dream come true.”
