Lauren Rammell auditioned for the thirteenth series of The XFactor with her band, Four of Diamonds, in 2016. The group made it as far as the live shows but were voted out in the semi-finals. Getting to the semi-finals, the band secured their place as one of the final eight contestants that co-headlined The X Factor Live Tour in 2017.

Coming off the tour, Four of Diamonds were swiftly signed to Virgin EMI Records; the first girl band to be signed since the Spice Girls! 

Since being signed to Virgin EMI, Four of Diamonds have worked with the likes of American rapper, Saweetie; Nigerian singer, Burna Boy; and toured as the support act on Rita Ora's UK stretch of her tour, "Phoenix." Needless to say, the girls are thriving.  

The band recently released their eighth single: a re-worked cover of Jamelia's famous 2003 hit "Superstar," working with Dutch DJ, Joe Stone, to inject a little 2020 energy into it. 

"The first girl band to be signed since the Spice Girls"

Principal, Susan Roberts says: "It warms my heart to hear of Lauren's immense success as a member of Four of Diamonds. I remember when she came to SRA at just nine-years-old... She was always going to be a star!"

And like their recent single, a superstar she is.

SRA is following your every success, Lauren. We're incredibly proud!
