Lauren hopes her Christmas single, 'Please Santa', will bring festive joy to everyone following the Covid-19 pandemic.

The 24-year-old said: “Because I couldn’t freely release music under the deal with my old publishers, I’ve now got a backlog of music built up.

"It was only decided last month that I would release this Christmas song that I wrote when I was just 16 so we got it properly produced and everyone at my new management team have loved it so far.

"I wanted to do a Christmas song especially after the last two years that we’ve all had, I feel that Christmas has always cheered everyone up.

"Given that I’ve got a substantial following on TikTok, people are getting very excited for the release of it and I hope that everyone back home in South Tyneside will also get behind it.”

'Please Santa' will be released on December 4 and be available on most music streaming platforms under the name Amour.

After graduating from the Academy of Music and Sound in Gateshead, she secured her first publishing deal and has gone on to write for stars like Joel Corry and Now United.

Now the former Jarrow School pupil is focusing on her own career and looking ahead to what’s to come in the next year.

She added: “I’m going to be aiming to release a single every month, for at least six months within the next year.
