How Lauren Daigle Has a Nail Salon to Thank for Her Career

One of the questions people always have for successful artists and performers is "What was you big break?"

While it’s often hard to pinpoint the moment for Lauren Daigle, one of the biggest things that happened to her went down in a nail salon of all places.

She just-so-happened to be getting a manicure next to Miley Cyrus and it couldn’t have happened at a better time.

It was literally the day she was kicked off American Idol and they started talking and Miley noticed Lauren’s beautiful smoky speaking voice.

Lauren tells Billboard: "Miley called her mom Tish and said ‘Mom! You’ve gotta meet this girl. I can tell just from the way she talks she’s gotta be on radio."

Lauren ended up flying to meet Tish and got tons of advice and some key contacts and was on her way.

Lauren returns to Idol this weekend to mentor the contestants. American Idol is live on ABC this Sunday at 8e/5p.
