Laura’s Final Performance – 16 Years Later
Today we remember Laura’s final public performance which took place on July 16th, 2004 at the Italia Unita festival in Boston Massachusetts. Laura was the headliner for the event, performing five songs including “I Know You By Heart” and “Forever Young” and her signature “Gloria”. At one point due to a sound problem Laura sang a capella an Irish parting song “The Parting Glass” ironically used to say goodbye to lost loved ones,. Sixteen years after the performance, the video makes very clear that Laura’s voice, passion, and love for performing was with her until the very end.
