In a triumph for young talent, 14-year-old Lacey Aiken from Broughshane has released her debut single, 'She,' marking a significant milestone in her budding music career. The song, which was written and performed by the young artist, showcases her skills as a songwriter, musician, and singer.

Lacey, a student at Dunclug College, first gained widespread attention last year when a video of her performing a cover of Alicia Keys' hit 'Fallin' at her school's open evening went viral on social media platforms. The performance was viewed by hundreds of thousands of people around the world, providing the young artist with the encouragement she needed to pursue her passion for singing.

In an interview with Love Ballymena, Lacey expressed her excitement about the release of her debut single. "I wrote 'She' around January time, and I played it to my parents for the first time, and they fell in love with it. I knew instantly that I wanted this to be my debut single," she said.

The song holds a special place in Lacey's heart, as she wrote it during a difficult time in her life when she was struggling with friendships at school. "The song is really special to me because I wrote it when I had a really hard time with friendships at school, and experienced the struggle of letting someone go but knowing it's for the better," she explained.

Lacey recorded 'She' at the end of May, and the song is now available on various streaming platforms, including Spotify.

The young artist is thrilled with the response to her debut single and is already planning to write more songs and return to the studio soon.

"After this song, I am planning to just keep writing, and to get back into the studio again soon," she said. "Even if it doesn't reach a big audience, you just never know who is going to hear it. An opportunity can come along at any point!"

With her passion, talent, and determination, the sky is the limit for this rising star from Ballymena. As she continues to pursue her dreams, there's no doubt that Lacey Aiken is a name to watch out for in the music industry.
