Kids Singing Country Songs: Dolly Parton, ‘Jolene’
Dolly Parton is not an artist who is easy to cover. She's one of country's biggest legends and most impressive voices. Lauren Klepp turned to her YouTube page to do just that, and when you hear her voice you won't believe her age!
Klepp is a 14-year-old (yes, 14!) with a big, beautiful voice. She posts YouTube videos regularly that show the wide range of her voice. She can cover everything from pop to country and does especially well with Parton's "Jolene," even giving it her own spin in the visual.
The singer is so impressive that she caught the attention of Mickey Guyton. Klepp contacted Guyton on Instagram, and the "Better Than You Left Me" singer couldn't help but respond, despite probably getting tons of messages. It prompted Guyton to reach out to all of her fans about pursuing their dreams.
Guyton wrote that Klepp "has the voice of an angel. Reading posts about how I inspire you guys inspires me! Don't ever stop dreaming and don't wait. If it's in your heart to do it. Do it! Life is too short not to!"
Watch Klepp's cover of "Jolene" above and it'll only take seconds for you to see why Guyton had to reach out to the teen singer.
