Laura Botkin died Sunday.
As reported this morning on Hair Balls, Houston opera singer Laura Botkin, 27, was killed late Sunday in a car crash in Lubbock.

The Rice Shepherd School graduate was a voice coach at HITS Theatre.

Botkin appeared in Houston Grand Opera's Your Name Means the Sea, as well as the recent production of Avenue Q at Country Playhouse.

A review of the musical on Art Attack praised her performance as Kate Monster, saying she played the role with "spot-on sprightliness."

It's a sad week for Houston's art community, which also lost renowned lighting artist Jeremy Choate.
