40 years have passed since the world was rocked by news of the death of The King of Rock & Roll, Elvis Presley. No one will ever truly replace the late and great Elvis, but fans may just be able to find consolation in The King’s cousin Lauren.

After exuding the same talent and charm as her distant cousin Elvis Presley, 12-year-old Lauren Marie Presley takes her aspirations to the recording booth. She impresses with a stunning rendition of Sara Evans’ “A Little Bit Stronger” as she chases her big Nashville dreams until they become a reality.


Clearly, the musical talent of Elvis runs through the veins of the young country singer, as evidenced by her striking vocals, which are remarkably robust for her tender age.

Lauren Marie’s passion for music continues to burn brightly, and she shows no indication of slowing down. Shortly after releasing “A Little Bit Stronger,” she shared a video of herself performing Martina McBride’s “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.”

History Of The Song

Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum co-wrote “A Little Bit Stronger,” which was recorded by Sara Evans in 2010. Actress Leighton Meester also recorded the song for the 2010 movie “Country Strong” and was featured on the film’s soundtrack. In 2011, the song was released as the second single, and Evans’ version was well-received, climbing to number one on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and number 34 on the all-genre Hot 100.
