Sharp County's own Lauren Gray was featured last Thursday night on American Idol, auditioning in St. Louis, Mo. Lauren sang, "One and Only" by Adele and earned high praise from the judges, with judge Jennifer Lopez remarking that the 22-year old had "one of the best female voices we've heard." Locally, "Team Gray" held watch parties to show their support. All of us at Areawide Media congratulate Lauren and wish her all the best in the next steps of the competition.
