Loren Allred is an American singer, songwriter and actress, born on September 7, 1989. The eldest daughter of three to musician parents, she attended Weber State University in Ogden where she gained a degree in musical theatre.

She later transferred to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where she uploaded YouTube videos and was discovered by singer Ne-Yo, later signing a record deal with Island Def Jam.

In 2014, she was a member of the recording ensemble for the film musical The Greatest Showman, in which she was cast as the singing voice of Rebecca Ferguson's character, Jenny Lind.

Her vocal performance received worldwide recognition and praise, with megastars Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson and Nicole Scherzinger among the artists who have covered the song. In 2019, she featured on Michael Bublé's Love album for a duet of Help Me Make it Through the Night, after the Canadian artist discovered her by watching the film starring Hugh Jackman. In 2021, she also joined Andrea Bocelli for some select performances on his American tour.

The legendary tenor said of Loren: "If an artist wants to move the listener, he or she must have something intense and convincing to tell through the singing. This something comes from experiences and insight: it is the inner wealth that you can acquire by living. Loren Allred is a perfect example of this: her richly nuanced voice, her expressiveness, and her powers of communication describe and celebrate the beauty she has managed to cultivate within herself.
