Her name is Hope. She is a singer, songwriter, and producer. Some may have heard of her but her material isn't widely played on the radio just yet. She is native to New York and grew up close to Woodstock.  Hope has been around music all of her life; her mother often appearing at the Apollo Theater and her father was a popular musical director on Broadway.  She has been playing the piano and guitar since a young age and has been drawn to artists such as Sade, Phil Collins, and Mariah Carey. 
Most of her music is very light and gives off happy vibes.  Her music is classified as pop but some of her songs have a soulful feel that I love. An artist that I would compare her to is Colbie Caillat. Her music has been featured in movies such as P.S. I Love You, Step Up 2, and Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married.
I heard her song, Who Am I To Say, a few years back and thought it was beautiful.  It reveals her pure talent. She never made a music video to this song but here is a audio clip from youtube..

 Hope is currently signed to Atlantic Records/Sweet Lemon.  Her album will be released soon and will include Who Am I to Say.  Her first official single off of her first album is Love, Love, Love featuring Jason Mraz.

  1. I like this short summary on Hope, her songs remind me a bit of Nelly Furtado.
