A year after Disney World debut, young alum releases first album
One year ago today, this blog shared the news that a Baylor alum’s voice would accompany the soundtrack for a new nightly show at Walt Disney World and Disneyland. (If you haven’t seen/heard that show, check it out here.)
Today, that same alumna, Laura Cooksey, BM ’01, has released her debut album, “Unshakeable.” A six-song EP, it is now available for download on iTunes and for purchase at lauracookseymusic.com. Cooksey’s songs range from the upbeat, pop-style “By Faith,” to the familiar worship track “Hosanna,” to the title anthem “Unshakeable.”
Since graduating from Baylor’s School of Music, Cooksey has performed background vocals for Christian artists like Nicole C. Mullen, Natalie Grant and Mandisa and led worship for the “Women of Faith” tours. This spring, she is touring with Mandisa’s “Girls Night Live” show, alongside Laura Story and Britt Nicole (see dates here). When not on the road, Cooksey lives in Franklin, Tenn., with her former Baylor sweetheart (now husband), Kyle Cooksey, BBA ’03.
Sic ’em, Laura!
