Lauren Duski may have won runner-up on The Voice, and she may have the devotion of her home state of Michigan, but she’s still figuring out how to keep herself in the fast-paced world of professional music. It’s a strange world full of twists, turns and opportunities for mistakes. You’re asked to wear so many masks and just as many hats. How do you keep yourself grounded and recognize the human in the mirror?
She took pen to paper and wrote “Costume Party” about finding the courage to be yourself under the spotlight. It’s a powerful and intimate portrait, and it’s one that resonated with fans young and old across the world.
The song’s undeniable relatability led fans to making their own music videos for it, which inspired Duski to create her official “Costume Party” video using that raw footage. It’s touching and reminds us that everyone has moments of self-doubt, no matter who they are.
