Laura Story's Smash Hit "Blessings" Certified Gold
Since the release of her much-heralded sophomore album, Blessings, multi-award winning songstress Laura Story's massive No. 1 hit single of the same name has been certified by the R.I.A.A. as Digital Gold. The Fair Trade Services recording artist has enjoyed quite a season of success since the April 2011 release of Blessings. At the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, she garnered the trophy for Top Christian Song, on the heels of her GRAMMY® Win for Best Contemporary Christian Song as well as Dove Awards for Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Song of the Year, Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

"Martin and I are both humbled and so grateful to God for this and pray that any attention the song 'Blessings' receives will be used by God to bring hope to others who are walking hard roads," says Story. "Many thanks to all who are celebrating with us, especially to those who helped give this song a platform to minister. May God's faithfulness be seen in this above all things."
Currently, Story is on the road as one third of "The 3 in 1 Tour," pairing some of today's most popular and acclaimed recording artists-Story, Mandisa and Brandon Heath. Seven of the first 10 shows have sold out since commencing in Florida on February 21, and the tour features the three very unique hitmakers collaborating to bring their celebrated sounds into one highly anticipated live experience. The national tour is a 23-city trek, visiting markets including Orlando, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Houston and St. Louis, and will wrap on April 14. International relief and development organization Food for the Hungry has partnered with "The 3 in 1 Tour" to bring awareness to its efforts alongside Story, Heath and Mandisa. Concertgoers should expect a night where the artists will collaborate on each other's songs and an experience full of fan favorites.
Story is presently at work on a new studio album, set for release this fall. And fans will be able to see Laura perform the new tracks live this fall on a nationwide 35-city tour with Steven Curtis Chapman.
