Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 6, 2009
International recording artist Laura Bryna (http://www.laurabryna.com) is almost as passionate about beauty and fashion as she is about singing. So when the publishers of Southern Beauty approached her for a cover feature on her blossoming music career, Bryna jumped at the opportunity.
“It doesn’t get much better than this,” exclaims the exuberant Bryna, who splits her time between Nashville and Los Angeles, where she is working on a follow-up CD to her critically acclaimed debut, ‘Trying to be Me.’ “Not only did I get to talk to the wonderful editors at Southern Beauty about my music and work with the Air Guard and Make-A-Wish, but was able to dress up in some of the most beautiful clothing you could imagine. What an incredible experience!”
The new issue of Southern Beauty is being distributed both digitally and nationally and can be seen online at http://www.southernbeautymagazine.com. Founded two years ago, Southern Beauty is the only magazine dedicated to the beauty and fashion world of the Southern woman. Featuring celebrity interviews and first-person accounts of Southern glamour, Southern Beauty is the ultimate resource for beauty must-haves and spiritual growth. Other recent stories have been done on Reese Witherspoon, LeAnn Rimes, and Nancy O’Dell.
In the article, Bryna talks about being “blessed” to have the career she dreamed about as a kid growing up in Mt. Airy, Maryland. In addition to her music which is approaching warp speed with a deal to distribute her debut CD internationally beginning in 2010; Bryna donates a huge chunk of her time to several causes that are dear to her heart. They include the Make-A-Wish Foundation (she’s on the board of directors for the Mid Atlantic Chapter), the Air Guard and the National Guard Youth Foundation. Bryna is a celebrity spokesperson and the voice behind the Air Guard’s national advertising – she co-wrote ‘Hometown Heroes’ which the AG adopted for the campaign.
Most recently, Bryna became a celebrity spokesperson for the National Guard Youth Foundation’s Youth Challenge Program – a 17 month commitment by at-risk teenagers who’ve dropped out of high school to get their lives back on track, and get back in school, graduate and lead productive lives. Towards that end, Bryna is working with the NGYF and the City of Los Angeles on a major Hometown Heroes event and fundraiser to be held at a high profile venue sometime next year.
“Music and entertaining are my passions,” says Bryna. “Being able to make people happy and take their mind off their everyday worries for a little bit is such a thrill for me. But, it’s the other things, like helping kids through Make-A-Wish or thanking the troops who do so much for all of us that really makes it worthwhile.”
“Laura Bryna epitomizes the young, vibrant, caring Southern woman of today,” says Southern Beauty Publisher Shannon Lindsay. “We have been tracking her career for two years and there’s seems to be no stopping this woman. Her energy, charisma and talent are contagious!”
