    Laura Sullivan is a GRAMMY® winning composer and recording artist. Her original music has been included in the score of two Emmy winning documentaries, as well as in many popular television programs and advertisements for Fortune 500 companies. 


    Laura Sullivan's release Love's River won a GRAMMY® for BEST NEW AGE ALBUM in the 56th GRAMMY® awards which aired on CBS on January 26, 2014. 


    GRAMMY® winning composer, Laura Sullivan, called out to the world to join her in a powerful plan to make a music video. Her request was simple.  Take a video of yourself singing her song “900 Voices” and send it to her.  The response was overwhelming.


    938 people from Australia, Brazil, Israel, Croatia, Korea, Kenya, India, and many other countries, participated by making videos on their cell phones and sending them to Laura.


    The result is epic.  27 languages included in one song and video about love and unity.  The video has been released on April 9, 2015 and is titled “900 Voices.”


    50% of the music proceeds of “900 Voices” are going towards the national nonprofit Little Kids Rock.  This organization partners with economically disadvantaged school districts to run music programs.  To date they have served more than 325,000 children in 13 states.
