Singer finds way to merge love of music with compassion for others

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – An entertainer in Starkville has found a unique way to merge her love of music with her compassion for workers and patients in the long-term care industry.

Lauren Chandler has been with a company that specializes in long-term and aging care for three years.

During that time, she put her singing career on hold.

So, for the holiday season, she’s warming up her vocal cords to bring holiday music to nursing homes across the country.

She’ll perform a concert that will be available to stream at those facilities.

“I was looking for a way that I could do a little more and give a little more for that community. And my first love was always music. And so, that new passion with trying to give them these grand experiences that they might miss out on just because of the season of life that they’re in. It was important for me to kind of merge these two loves that I have. So with this concert, I’m able to give to the community that I feel is missing something. And I’m able to do it by doing what I love to do which is singing,” said Lauren Prince-Chandler, event organizer.

The public is invited to the free performance that will be recorded and later streamed online.

The performance is Thursday at 4:30 p.m. at the Starkville High School theatre.

Chandler extended a special invitation to workers in the skilled nursing or long-term care industry.
