The sporty soprano shares her inspiring thoughts on inner beauty and physical strength with Classic FM's Margherita Taylor.
She's famous for her chart-topping albums and her soaring choral voice, but Laura Wright is equally as sporty as she is musical. Speaking to Classic FM's Margherita Taylor, Laura revealed exactly how she balances strength and beauty in her life - showing off the hard work and physical capabilities of her body, alongside the delicate beauty of her singing voice.
"Beauty definitely is something about an inner confidence, an inner strength in fact," she said. "If you can instil that in young women at quite a young age then that's something incredibly important."
Her latest video, Barber's Adagio/The Sound of Strength, is a combination of these two concepts, demonstrating the beauty of strength and the strength of beauty, showing off the human body as a physical tool.
"There's no soft focus, it's all about the strength," she said. "It's all about how your body works as a muscle, but there's also a real beauty there, empowering the femininity as well."
Laura's dedication to her fitness and her singing career doesn't stop at the end of a busy day. While many might be tempted to indulge in a hot bath and a glass of wine, Laura prefers to wind down with some calming yoga.
As well as her new album coming out later in the year, Laura revealed her plans for the coming year. She revealed her plans to perform at the Invictus Games 2014, an international sporting competition for wounded, injured and sick service personnel.
"It's going to be a really special moment to have respect for the service men and women, for them to have their moment to shine," she said.
