Adriana-Laurenția "Laura" Stoica (10 October 1967 – 9 March 2006) was a Romanian singer, composer and actress.

In 1986, she graduated from the "Popular Arts School" in Târgoviște with a degree in classic canto. Afterwards, she participated at all the major new-talent contests held in Romania. In 1989, she got a one-year singing contract at "Toma Caragiu" Theatre in Ploiești.[citation needed]

Stoica made her debut in 1990 at the "Mamaia" festival with the Un actor grăbit song ("An Actor in a Hurry", written by Bogdan Cristinoiu). The following year she was declared the best pop-rock singer and Un actor grăbit became the song of the year. Her debut album, entitled Focul ("The Fire") was released in 1994. Since then, her songs have been included in many compilations. Her second album, ...Nici o stea ("...Any Star"), was released in 1996. Laura Stoica was also an actress. In 2000, she graduated from the Ecological University of Bucharest with a degree in drama.[citation needed]

On 9 March 2006, Stoica and her fiancé lost their lives in a car accident near Urziceni. She was pregnant at the time.[1]
