Aurora was a Christian girl group that was made up of sisters Lauren, Racquel & Rachel Smith. The group released two albums, Aurora and Bigger than Us, and had singles "Mercy Me" and "Outta My Heart" on UK radio.

On March 1, 2001, the group performed in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Amazing Pop Invasion tour premiere, a 30-city event headlined by Raze. The tour also featured Tammy Trent, UK DJ Doug Ross and fellow girl pop group Whisper Loud. However, Raze frontman Ja'Marc Davis was arrested that night for molesting teen girls in 1998. The remainder of the tour was cancelled after a March 6, 2001 concert, which omitted Davis and Whisper Loud.[1] Aurora disbanded in 2002.

Aurora worked with the now-defunct Christian label Red Hill Records, notable for releasing Katy Hudson's debut album. Hudson later entered the secular music industry as Katy Perry, where she became a best-selling artist.
