Hot off her sensational performance at the Opening Ceremony of Prince Harry’s Invictus Games, the sporting soprano Laura Wright today announces her first headline UK tour.
The 24-year-old mezzo soprano who shot to fame with classical choral group All Angels has sold over a million albums, and has become one of our best selling classical artists this decade.
Laura said ““It’s going to be a real thrill to be bringing my sporting tour to venues up and down the country. As much as I love performing to thousands on a pitch, to bring the show alive with my band is going to be spectacular. I can’t wait to share it with you”.
As the first mezzo-soprano to perform at the Olympic Stadium, Laura has toured with tenors Alfie Boe and Russell Watson and opened the iTunes Festival for Andrea Bocelli. Having performed at many of the world’s most prestigious venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Opera House, Wembley Stadium, The O2, Twickenham Stadium, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, even The Great Wall of China, Laura is one of our most accomplished solo soprano singers.
Classically trained at the Royal College Of Music, for which she received a First Degree, for her first headline tour, Laura will perform some uplifting and classical favourites from her past albums, as well as songs from her recently released album ‘Sound of Strength’ which not only shows off Laura’s classical singing prowess but also fuses together more popular, mainstream works too.
Expect to hear World In Union, Swing Low, Jerusalem, Nessun Dorma, as well as Invincible, which stole the show at the Opening Ceremony of Prince Harry’s Invictus Games. A firm fixture at sporting events, Laura sings regularly at the International rugby matches for men and women, the 6 Nations at Twickenham and is the England Rugby team’s first ever-official anthem singer.Go Back
