Alfred Music Publishing Releases New Easy Piano Editions of Laura Story's Blessings

LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Monday, September 17, 2012

Alfred Music Publishing, the official print music publisher of thousands of popular artists, songwriters, and composers, releases new Big Note and Easy Piano sheet music editions of Laura Story’s Blessings, arranged by leading Contemporary Christian music arranger Carol Tornquist.

The beautiful piano-based ballad “Blessings” is among today's most sought-after Contemporary Christian sheet music titles. With these new simplified arrangements, student and hobbyist pianists who are fans of the song and Laura Story can play one of the most memorable and chart-topping worship songs. To ease sight-reading and playability, the new editions are transposed to keys that are notably easier to play than the album key of B major. The melody is played by the right hand, making them effective as piano solos if a vocalist isn’t present. The Big Note edition is specially crafted for pianists in their earliest years of study, and the Easy Piano edition is perfect for advancing players who aren’t quite ready to tackle the notably more difficult Piano/Vocal arrangement.

Singer/songwriter Laura Story’s career has been a successful one since her debut. She wrote the No. 1 worship hit “Indescribable” recorded in 2004, and worked in music and women’s ministry at the 4,000-member Perimeter Church in Atlanta. After signing an artist deal with the INO Records in 2008, her national debut won a Dove Award for “Inspirational Album” and earned Laura two consecutive nominations for “Female Vocalist of the Year.” Her latest album and hit single, both titled Blessings, both peaked at number one on Billboard’s “Top Christian Albums” and “Hot Christian Songs” charts.

Blessings Big Note and Easy Piano sheet music editions are now available for $3.99 each, and can be found at music retail stores and at alfred.com/piano. Alfred offers the Piano/Vocal/Chords edition as well.
