Thomas Paine's version of "you didn't build that":
"Separate an individual from society,and give him an island or a continent to possess,and he cannot acquire personal property. He cannot be rich. So inseparably are the means connected with the end,in all cases,that where the former do not exist the latter cannot be obtained. All accumulation, therefore,of personal property,beyond what a man's own hands produce, is derived to him by living in society; and he owes on every principle of justice,of gratitude,and of civilization,a part of that accumulation back again to society from whence the whole came"

Laura is of Romanian origin, but was born in the US and lives with her family in Chicago. Encouraged by her mother, she started singing in the church when she was 4-years old. At the age of 12, she began taking voice lessons and learn arias from operas. She is now studying canto with Nicoleta Roman, a Romanian lyric artist at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Laura’s Romanian grandfather, who died one year ago and was her biggest fan, convinced her to compete in Romania’s Got Talent. At the auditions, she impressed both the jury and the audience and got a Super Golden Buzzer from the show’s presenters, which sent her straight into the final.
“I’m very nervous. I’ve never believed that something like this is possible, I have no words to explain what happened tonight,” Laura said after winning Romania’s Got Talent.
