Pamper-Her-Friday by Rg2® 204: The ‘Pamperee Profiles’ by Rg2 (7) ‘Lauren the Enchantress’

“Lauren the Enchantress”



That face.

Capable of launching a thousand ships. Destination? No matter. So long as she greets their arrival–a platinum mic in her hand. And the wandering seafarer is moored–for good.

That voice.

A come-along-with-me lyrical affair akin to a magic carpet ride to a land of enchantment. Just listen. And be still the beating heart.

One may gather that I write about some fictional enchantress better left to princess books of kingdom lore. One, however, would be wrong. For I write about Lauren Jelencovich, a living, breathing songstress in our midst. May the carpet ride never end.

The featured soloist on New Age/Contemporary Instrumental impresario and multi-Grammy nominee Yanni’s world tours, Lauren has been immersed in music and song since the tender age of two, when humming would soon give way to singing at the age of four while her grandmother played the piano. A dream for a life in song had taken root and, by all accounts, dreams indeed come true.

“As I got older, my love for singing deepened and my father heard about Ed McMahon’s Star Search and said he wanted to drive me to the audition,” reminisces Lauren. “I went and ended up going through all the rounds and won the grand prize! It was then that I realized I wanted to become a singer.”

Other highlights include Lauren’s being featured in People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and Teen magazine, and she is a recipient of Andrea Bocelli’s National Italian American Foundation World Scholarship. The naturally gifted soprano is equally at home in Broadway, pop, and classical music–and in enhancing life through heartfelt works.

Shares Lauren: “While I’m on break from tour, I enjoy being active in different communities. One of my favorite pastimes is visiting nursing homes, singing and spending time with everyone. I often perform at churches and have worked with an organization called Sing for Hope, which is mobilizing over 1,000 artists in volunteer programs throughout underserved communities in the greater New York City area.

“Also, while attending The Manhattan School of Music, I was part of an inner city outreach program where I performed for children and shared my story through song on how I became a professional singer. It was truly a great experience sharing my gift of song in that way and I’m so lucky now to continue sharing it with so many people while on tour.”

It’s that humble, generous spirit, Lauren, that makes you so worthy of this Pamper-Her-Friday’s Pamperee honor. May the carpet ride never end.

Romance by Rg2®: The Romantic Valentine Collection by Rg2 (12): Confidential: A Valentine Letter

Valentine getaway


Dear ________,

A woman doesn’t need a Valentine. A woman doesn’t want a Valentine.

Just because a marketable holiday says so.

Please don’t misconstrue the intent of this letter; I won’t misprint, for I’m better . . . than all the askers who’ve contacted you thus far. This is what I want you to do: I want you to weigh the others’ weak ask and avail your heart and mind of the task . . .

. . . of making your consideration of me the last of them all. Yes, I urge you to take your time and thoroughly assess their silly approach–because I’m about to broach a romance idea unlike any other.

My understanding is the winter wonderland you find yourself hemmed by, there on the Atlantic coast, has rather lost its allure. Postcard-worthy though it may be, the blizzardly sins and blustery winds of mother nature make a getaway in February so very necessary.

The beauty of world climate is, when one part of the globe is arctic-like, there’s an opposing weather event occurring in the other–like discerning between a Valentine impostor and a truly gifted lover. You wish the former would simply go away and the latter, by all means, must stay.

More than a Valentine. Precisely what you need.

A marketable holiday simply is not enough. After all, what about Saturday the 15th? And Sunday the 16th?

And would it really be so bad if our Valentine retreat spilled into the following week? I mean, who gives a damn about Monday anyway?

By the way, this Valentine’s Day falls on Pamper-Her-Friday. Yes, I had a hand in it; I spoke with the calendar gods some time ago. Call me proactive. But a woman likes that in her Valentine, yes? (Are you smiling on that one?)

So, again, assess the others’ ask and save mine for last. The very last thought. The final contemplation.

And then, woman, pack a light bag. I’m making my way there shortly.

No, a woman doesn’t need a Valentine. A woman doesn’t want a Valentine. Just for a holiday.

A woman wants a truly gifted lover who knows what the hell he’s doing. Like no other.

I’m on my way.

Your Valentine,



Romance lives.
