Early life and educationEdit

Allred is the eldest daughter born to musician parents: her mother, Carol Ann Allred, is a classical soprano and voice teacher and her father, Brady R. Allred, formerly was the director of the Pittsburgh Bach Choir and an artistic director and conductor of Salt Lake Choral Artists.[1] She has three younger sisters, Megan, Brennan, and Karin.[2]

After a year of studying musical theatre at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah, she transferred to the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. While in Boston, she uploaded videos to YouTube, and was discovered and championed by Ne-Yo, ultimately leading to a record deal with Island/Def Jam.

CareerEdit

In 2012 Loren was a contestant on season 3 of the television show The Voice and selected Adam Levine as her "coach". Allred was eliminated after the first week of the live playoffs, tying for 13th place.

In 2014, she was a member of recording ensemble for a film musical being developed by the Broadway songwriting team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. After working on early demos, she was cast as the singing voice of Rebecca Ferguson's Jenny Lind on the project The Greatest Showman. The film soundtrack was successful, going platinum and topping the Billboard albums chart in January 2018. The same month, Allred's featured song, "Never Enough," reached number 88 on the Hot 100.[3]
