Lauren Mascitti

You might remember Lauren Mascitti from the 2020 season of ABC’s “American Idol.” Mostly known for her solo round performance during Hollywood Week of a song she penned herself and dedicated to her nana titled “God Made A Woman,” she quickly became a fan favorite. During the Top 40 showcase in Hawaii, however, she became part of a history-making and controversial vote for the last spot in AI’s Top 20. Although she didn’t win the vote, putting her in 21st place, outraged Idol fans catapulted Lauren’s newest independent album release “God Made a Woman” to #4 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart within a day of her elimination. Lauren is determined to keep the fire burning bright using her momentum and success from her Idol experience as fuel. #21 just might be Lauren’s magic number…

Lauren is a country music singer/songwriter from Louisville, Ohio who moved to Nashville after graduating from nursing school. Singing since the age of 7, she has shared the stage with many notable acts across the United States and has been blessed to have written and/or performed with the likes of country music songwriting legends Delbert McClinton, Larry Gatlin, Pam Tillis, Matraca Berg, Pat McLaughlin, Big Al Anderson, Suzy Bogguss, and many more . Her most recent album, “God Made A Woman” was named by the New York Times in their “Best Albums of 2020” list, and was named by Saving Country Music in their “Top 12 Albums of 2020”.
