Fresh Artist: Laura Izibor / by

I've been meaning to post about this young lady a few days ago. Postingf the Sugarland post reminded me of another song I hear constantly at work & I absolutely LOVE it! Her name is Laura Izibor. Check out a lil bit of her bio below, then afterwards listen to her song "From My Heart To Yours". You're gonna love it!

Laura Izibor (born May 13, 1987) on Griffith Avenue, Dublin, Ireland, is an Irish R&B singer of Irish/Nigerian descent.

She won the Jacob's/RTÉ 2fm song contest while still in secondary school. She went on to win a Hope for 2006 Award at the 2006 Meteor Music Awards. She also performed at that year's Electric Picnic music festival and Music Ireland 2007.

Laura has opened for Aretha Franklin, India.Arie, Estelle Maxwell and John Legend on tour. Her debut album "Let The Truth Be Told" was released in Ireland on Friday 8th May 2009, and in the U.K. on Monday 18th May and on Tuesday 16th June in the U.S.

Yeeeeeeah. I'm puttin yal up some some good ole stuff right. I love this song. It has that "Lean On Me" tune in it and her voice reminds me of Lauren Hill's a lil bit. But she can definitely stand on her own. We recieved only 1 box of albums from her when it was released and they are gone. So it's selling, it peaked at #27 on BIllboards U.S. Albums chart & it currently sits at #118. But her single "Let The Truth Be Told " sits at #7; peaking at #4 on Billboard's Single: Hot Adult R&B Airplay. That's pretty decent. I'm sure we'll hear more from her!
