Laurel, born Lauretta Nana Adwoa Ofori (now Mrs. Asante), is a Ghanaian contemporary gospel worshipper, songwriter and composer, poised to touch lives through her divine gift of music.
Her love for music started at an early age and this, she exhibited throughout her days in elementary, through to senior secondary, till now. She just loved to sing.
She would make a song out of every situation. In her own words, music was her escape. She joined her school choir to perform on the Kyekye Kule Show hosted by Uncle George Laing in the 90’s.
