Congratulations to Laura!

Big congratulations to an old friend of mine, Laura Story. Laura’s album, Great God Who Saves, just won a Dove Award for Inspirational Album of the Year, 2009.

Back in “the day” (when I was in college), Laura and I were on a Young Life team together for a year or so. Laura was also in a band called Silers Bald (not to be confused with the mountain peak, from which the band got its name). I did some photography for some of Silers Bald’s early CDs, and got to know them quite well. I can remember how Laura was nervous about singing at first; for a long time, Silers Bald was fronted by a girl with a powerful voice named Holly Anderson, and Laura was (initially) intimidated about singing on the same stage as Holly. She’s come a long way since then!

These days, Laura leads worship for Perimeter Church in Atlanta, a PCA congregation. She also puts out awesome albums. Laura wrote the song, “Indescribable” which has become one of
the big worship songs in the last several years. Laura’s scheduled to do a concert at this year’s PCA General Assembly, which I’m looking forward to.

Here’s a video about Laura, including some clips from her award-winning release:

Laura, I’m proud of you! Congratulations!
