Laura Story born Laura Mixon Story Elvington, is an American contemporary Christian music singer, songwriter and the senior worship leader at Perimeter Church. She is known for such worship songs as “Mighty to Save,” “Indescribable,” and “Blessings.” She is from Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Story began her music career in 1996 when she met Shane Williams, from the band Silers Bald, at Columbia International University. Williams asked her to join the band and she became their bass player. Story released four independent albums with the band. When the band was about to sign a deal with Essential Records, Story’s manager suggested she record a solo album.

In 2002, Story left Silers Bald and began working on her first album, Indescribable, which was released independently that same year. In 2004, the title track of her album was recorded by Chris Tomlin in his album, Arriving. The band Avalon also recorded a version of the song for the WOW Worship 2006 album.

Story released her second independent album in 2005, titled There Is Nothing. The album was produced by Ed Cash and Mitch Dane. During that year, she also married Martin Elvington, and moved to Atlanta, Georgia, to become an associate worship leader at Perimeter Church.

After one year of marriage, Story’s husband was hospitalized with a brain tumor. “There was a time he was on a breathing machine and we weren’t sure he was going to make it. I spent my whole life singing, â ‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,’ but until Jesus took me through something where my only option was to trust Him, I didn’t really know that sweetness,” reflects Story. While supporting her husband through surgery, radiation, complications, and intense physical therapy, Story composed new rubber-meets-the-road songs to reaffirm God’s presence in her darkest hours.
