Laura Hawthorne is a Christian music artist and worship leader from Wilmington, Delaware. Early on in childhood, while participating in Sunday worship services, she realized that singing was her passion. At 16, while attending a crusade, Laura gave her heart to the Lord. She became Miss Delaware Teen USA, appearing on national television and performed on the soundtrack for the pageant. She appeared in various media events and after attending college moved to New York City to pursue a career in music.
Laura’s call to ministry came in April 2000, when her brother, Jay, fell and broke his neck in a terrible construction accident, leaving him a ventilator dependent quadriplegic. As a national anthem singer for the New York Mets, she had the opportunity to help organize the first Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day at Shea Stadium, performing a pre-game concert on the field honoring Jay and fellow special quadriplegic guests. Her brother has become her personal hero and her inspiration to sing and lead others to Christ.
Laura founded Livin In His Love, a music ministry, and has traveled nationally and internationally as a worship leader and speaker. Newly married, Laura and her husband Michael lead worship and share their testimony in appearances throughout the country.
Laura’s recordings include, He’s Been Faithful (2009) produced by Lonnie Wilson, In the Garden (2013) and Fearless (2016) – both co-written and produced by 6 time Dove Award-winner, Don Koch. All three projects were recorded and produced in Nashville, TN. Her music video, In the Garden, produced by Dove Award-winning filmmaker, Stephen Yake, was featured on Up Music Mornings – UPtv.
