Lauren Alaina’s Surprise Birthday Prom
Lauren Alaina celebrated her 18th birthday with a prom-themed party last weekend in her hometown. Friends and family in Rossville, GA surprised her with the party, and a dress to change in to, because she missed the prom while on tour. Teens with special needs were honored as prom kings and queens through one of her favorite organizations, Special Olympics Project Unify. Also in attendance was Jordan Trunfio, a high schooler with a brain tumor who was surprised when Lauren joined him at his homecoming dance. She just wrapped her 18-City-Inch-By-Inch Tour supporting current single “Eighteen Inches.” Next up, Lauren will vy for New Artist honors at the ACA Awards on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas.
