Laura Wright Takes to London Marathon Leaving Little to the Imagination, Plans to Sing 'Jerusalem' Mid-Sprint

Laura Wright and her scrummy side with rugby goers makes her something of a crossover singer. And the latest on her antics comes to us via Norman Lebrecht at ArtsJournal's Slipped Disc.

Wright has made the brave decision to run the London Marathon on Sunday in, well, hardly anything.

As Lebrecht puts it: "We think she may be running to raise cash for a new costume."

Per a release, the 23-year-old mezzo soprano--among one of the biggest selling classical artists in the UK this decade--will stop halfway through her London Marathon run to sing "Jerusalem" on Tower Bridge.

This will be followed up by an interview with Denise Lewis of the BBC.
