La’Porsha Renae New Name, New Book Series

La’Porsha Renae came in as runner-up on the 15th and final season of American Idol in 2016. A year later, the singer released her debut album Already All Ready on Motown Records. Two years later, in 2019, she dropped the independent single, “Solo.” The album and single couldn’t get traction on the charts. So, afterward, she kept a low profile. She was SO quiet, that a hacker took over her Twitter account. 

The Artist Now Goes by A.E.S.

But now, La’Porsha resurfaced with a new name and a press release announcing a new book series. The artist formerly known as La’Porsha Renae now goes by A.E.S. and will release a self-published book, Meet Me on the Battlefield. It is the first in a series of seven autobiographical memoirs. From the press announcement:

First runner up on the Farewell Season of “American Idol” and recording/performing artist, A.S.E., formerly known as La’Porsha Renae, has scribed a 7-book memoir series that journeys far beneath her surface. Book 2, Trained on the Battlefield, is coming soon.

While many would say they believe in spiritual warfare, A.S.E. is convinced that most do not understand what it actually looks like. She candidly shows readers this reality through her own story.

“Meeting so many different, hurting people during my rise to fame, I began to recognize the common denominator of our shared pain. The enemy had hidden himself well inside the lives of others, and they couldn’t defeat him from lack of knowledge about him and his way. My writings aim to give the reader a candid picture of how both the adversary and The Almighty are at work in our lives,” said A.S.E.

Book #1 is set in the deep waters of her childhood. From the choppy waves of her southern experiences as a young child through the dark, complex caves and trenches of her teenage years, A.S.E. invites you on a deep-dive into her unique beginnings. Her story is no fairytale, but you will never be the same after embarking upon this voyage. Narrated by her older and wiser being,

A.S.E. summons YOU to her BATTLEFIELD.

The charismatic theme sounds almost supernatural, apocalyptic. I assume that the deeply religious woman is more devoted to God than ever, rather than fallen down one of the conspiracy theory rabbit holes floating around the internet…

Hackers took over her Twitter account

A few months ago, I noticed weird activity on her Twitter account (@La’PorshaRenae). Looking at her profile, it became clear a hacker took over the account. I tagged Twitter and American Idol in a Tweet, after which the hacker promptly blocked me. Now, the singer regained control of the account and changed the handle to @ASEEnternal. Unfortunately, however, she lost her blue checkmark. But, I have a feeling she doesn’t care about that. Also, I remain blocked!
