Here’s more about Laela.

* She’s from Monroe, La., and graduated from the Asheville Christian Academy in North Carolina in 2022.

* She’s also a college student in Nashville and a newlywed, having married high school sweetheart Dawson Skinner on Dec. 31.

* Musically, she’s part of LO (Live Original) Workship, a Christian music and worship group founded by her cousin Sadie Robertson Huff.

* You might say LO Worship has enjoyed some musical success. The Christian group’s 2022 EP “Steady Light” features five songs that have been streamed more than 1 million times on Spotify. A song called “Open” has 6.5 million streams alone.

* Since “Steady Light” was released, LO Worship has followed up with two live albums and an album of seven new songs, “Holy in My Heart,” released in September.

* The title track from that album and a 2023 single called “Presence” each have more than 400,000 streams on Spotify.

* On Spotify, LO worship is described as “a collective of friends, crafting lyrics and melodies that echo the sound of revival in our generation, for our generation.” Says Sadie: “People won’t remember a 40-minute sermon, but they will remember a 4-minute song.”

* Laela grew up performing music with her brother Max and also got to release music they worked on as part of a summer residency hosted by The Worship Intiative. That music appears on an album called “Psalms from the Wells,” which was released in November.

* Laela confesses about struggling with “crippling perfectionism that bleeds into every aspect of my creativity” and writes about it in the September-October issue of Grateful Girl Magazine.
