With over a million album sales under her belt, Laura Wright has been one of the biggest selling classical artists this decade.
Laura was the first mezzo soprano to perform at the Olympic Stadium, has toured with tenors Alfie Boe and Russell Watson and opened the iTunes Festival for Andrea Bocelli. She has enjoyed many performances at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Opera House Wembley Stadium, Wembley Arena, The O2, Twickenham Stadium, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, even The Great Wall of China, and is still only 24 years old.
After a dramatic Red Arrows flypast, Laura was the first to perform at the opening ceremony for HRH Prince Harry’s Invictus Games where she debuted a new piece she wrote “Invincible”, taken from her album Sound Of Strength. Laura’s show stopping performance resulted in the mezzo-soprano being the talk of the concert, gracing the front page of the Daily Telegraph the following day.
As a royal favourite, HM The Queen cited Laura’s Diamond Jubilee Song ‘Stronger As One’ in her Commonwealth Day Message at Westminster Abbey where the song was premiered and secured a No1 chart position on Gary Barlow’s Sing EP. Laura enjoyed the privilege of performing more times for Her Majesty than any other artist that year.
A familiar face at worldwide sporting events, Laura is proud to be the England Rugby team’s first ever official anthem singer, performing at the men’s and women’s International rugby matches, the 6 Nations, the Barbarians games and the Rugby 7s all at Twickenham. Laura is also a regular at the NFL matches, has performed at Rugby League, The Carnegie Challenge Cup Final, WSB Boxing, polo, the Carling Cup Final, The Championship Play-off Final and the FA Cup Final.
