She started off dancing around age 5 taking ballet, tap, and jazz classes at her local recreation center. Singing later came into the picture around the age of 8 when she started performing with a former JaHMa recording artist on the Fremont stage downtown for the Taste Of Sounds and Soul and local coffee shops and record stores (Rejavanate and Zia Records). She did not start rapping until later around the age of 13. She was scheduled to do a song with another artist which required her to rap on it. The other artist no longer could do the song with Hope but she decided to continue on with the song by herself. She did not know she had the ability to rap until she tried it in the booth for her first time.
Hope’s career really got started in the Summer of 2012 when she was invited to perform at the Urban and Pop Showcase at the Celebrity Center in Hollywood. There were a lot of talented teens her age doing the same thing as her. It really inspired her & pushed her in the right direction to work harder and follow her passion. In September of 2012 Hope decided to try online school due to bullying & business started picking up in her music career. She then became very busy with doing shows all over Las Vegas and Southern California.
Hope was also on the Bully Busters 702 School Tour for many years where she went into schools in the Las Vegas community to perform and speak to the kids about her experiences with bullying. Please support Hope in her journey on becoming successful in life. With her high energy performances and passion she is destined for something great.
