To date, Laura’s version of “O’Canada” is the number one digital download of the song in the World.
Critically acclaimed. Artistically compelling. Spiritually poignant. All three have been used to describe Bradley in the past, yet they never have rung as true as today. “The Prayer” showcases the power and passion of Bradley’s classically trained 3 octave range in Agnus Dei, The Prayer, The Lord’s Prayer in addition to the Schubert and Bach versions of Ave Maria.
