Several months ago I heard the amazing story of singer/songwriter Laura Roppe through her mother-in-law, who works with me. Although I’ve never met Laura face-to-face, we’ve gotten acquainted through several e-mails. She’s a cancer survivor whose story is remarkable and uplifting. Against all odds she’s licked cancer, quit her lucrative career as an attorney and followed her dream to write music and sing.
Her CD, entitled, Girl Like This, has done very well and has gotten lots of attention. Float Away, a cut from this CD, just won Americana Song of the Year at the L.A. Music Awards in Hollywood.
I could go on and on about her, but please take the time to read her story: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/lauraroppe
