Her talents have taken Laura all over the world, opening for national recording artists like Jon B, Trina and Trick Daddy. Laura’s abilities have been recognized by the international community, winning the Harrah’s Lucky Break national singing competition not once, but twice! Laura has graced the cover of Caramba magazine, as well as appearing on the popular Dominican late night show, Dos Por Dos.

When enjoying her amazingly smooth and powerful stylings through covering artists like Etta James or Beyonce, audiences get lost in the moment.
