She first connected with people when her song “Blessings” found an audience. She has since continued to draw from her life experiences and challenges to speak to the heart of the Christian faith. With reflection, vulnerability, and personal honesty, Laura once again pens songs that gift a deep spiritual connection in her newest worship-focused release “Open Hands”…..Revival is rising. Faith is stretching. Hope is being restored. Echoing this spirit of Elijah, it is the prayer of ELEVATION WORSHIP, with the release of their new live album ‘There is a Cloud’, that these songs will usher in a new season of revival in our hearts, in our churches, and in our world. These new songs will fuel your faith and restore your hope as you draw closer to the heart of Christ…..Filled with positive, uplifting lyrics, along with energetic beats and tender melodies, ‘Lifer’ delivers the massive hits that MercyMe is known for. It’s a reminder that no matter what life may bring, we can find hope to persevere. We are more alike than we are different, and we are connected by our stories and a God who is the author of them and we can trust our lives to Him.
