Music out of heartbreak— After only one year of marriage, three-time Dove Award nominee Laura Story’s husband was stricken with a brain tumor. In the midst of her husband’s surgery, radiation and intense physical therapy, Laura struggled to express her faith through her music. Since then her songs have blessed thousands of lives.

Laura will share her music and her story in Xpress Faith Columbia, a musical event being held nightly on Friday-Sunday, April 23-25, 2010 (CIU night is Sunday, April 25), at 7:30 at Spring Valley Baptist Church, 91 Polo Road, Columbia, SC. Accompanying Laura will be the 100-voice Praise & Worship Choir and Orchestra of Spring Valley Baptist Church.
