Uche Laura Etiaba
Uche Laura Etiaba, (popularly known as LAURECHE) is a Gospel Artiste, a certified Speaker/Coach, and an Event Planner par excellence.
She is the third of eight wonderful, spirit-filled children, borne to Mr &Mrs. SPC Egbuna.
Her zeal for the work of The Lord has never been known to wain as she has been involved with so many different successful campaigns in and outside the Loveworld Nation, for the progress of the work of the kingdom, especially with her Music Ministry and inherent Events Management and Planning gifting.
Growing up, Laureche like David could be described as a child after God’s heart. She got born again at the tender age of 14 (while in secondary school) and since then has been on fire for Jesus.
Laureche spent her early years in Port Harcourt town; Rivers State Nigeria. She attended Army Children School GRA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and later did her secondary school at Federal Government Girls College Calabar in Cross River State. She then moved on to Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka, Anambra State where she studied Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
INTRODUCTION TO MINISTRY
While in school, she had a music group by the name COLORS made up of four amazing ladies who simply loved to use every opportunity to sing their love for Jesus. Her commitment was not just to the music department but to the work God was doing in the lives of students through the Campus fellowship.
She was so relevant to the work that by her third year, she became the Music Director and then was ordained the fellowship Pastor by her 4th year of school.
Her National youth service corps was carried out in Benin, Edo State after which she made her way back to Port Harcourt.
She worked in an Oil servicing company for 6years as a Sales Engineer before deciding to follow her passion – Events Management and Planning.
In 2004, the brand LAURECHE was formally launched. She has carefully carved a niche for herself and works over the years and all those who have had one reason or the other to work closely with her can testify that Laureche is a trusted brand name with a slogan …We make things happen! Indeed, She makes things happen!
2014 was a very special year for her because not only did she mark a milestone birthday, but she also marked 10 years of a most exciting and fulfilling Events Management and Planning Career.
She is the brain behind Excuse Me Laugh, an annual Easter comedy show, which was packaged specifically to provide wholesome entertainment for the entire family, young and old.
This show, which held every Easter Monday, hosted the good people of Port Harcourt to the most family-friendly Easter Comedy event for 10 solid years.
Few years ago, she added Facility Management to her bouquet as Oasis Event Center, a state of the art facility to cater to different kinds of events, was birthed
1st of December 2014 marked yet another great achievement of this wonderful woman of God, as she let us into her world of music and creative arts.
It was the launch of her maiden album (More than Enough) a Praise-Worship master piece, carefully put together to lift the saddest heart or provide the merriest soul, with the right atmosphere of Praise and Worship to a God who does exceeding abundantly above all that we could ever ask or imagine, according to the power that works mightily in us.
In 2016, Laureche decided to go full blast into her music ministry and chose to use her annual Easter Monday event for a music concert; Miracle Worship Concert with Laureche which she has hosted for 5 years.
This year, 2021, she also officially rebranded from LAURECHE to Pastor Uche Etiaba.
The annual Easter Monday Concert took a different twist as she hosted a unique kind of concert on the 5th of April. This was tagged the I DECLARE CONCERT with Pst Uche Etiaba. It was a most exciting time of making powerful affirmations through songs.
Since 2014, when she let out her first album (More than Enough), she has released two more; Miracles Flow and Eucharistia, amidst several singles, 6 Music Videos, 2 lyric Videos and most recently, an EP (HOLY SPIRIT; February 2021)
You must agree with me that Laureche is a high achiever!
