A-21 Benefit Concert Report & Artist of the Month!

Filed under: Shows,Updates — Hope on September 27, 2011 @ 4:57 pm

Hello beautifuls!

The September 19th Benefit Concert was an incredible success! About 50 people showed up in support of the cause to watch me and 3 other singer songwriters rock our jams. Elana Brody opened up the show wailing out some meaty tunes while pounding the ivory keys. She was followed by the beautiful Trinidad native, Annya Li, who graced us with lovely acoustic melodies as well as a wicked Caribbean style rap. Then I along with my sister, Faith Gilmore, sang our songs for the remainder of the benefit. It was awesome to be able to back one another up with sisterly harmonies. Faith’s vivacious performance included songs from her latest album, Bold as Lions, and I sang about 7 of my own tunes, one of them being a newbie entitled “Traffic”, based on the issue at hand. Thanks to David Glickstein (guitar), Jason Arce (guitar), Johnny Wolf (cajon) and their hard work in playing both of our tunes the set went smoothly.

It was evident that the room was filled with a incredible energy and everyone seemed to have an enjoyable evening. Much thanks to the generous donations of the guests in attendance, a $100 donation from The Red Lion, and A-21 merchandise that was sold, together we raised nearly $600. I am so blessed to have had the help of everyone that made the idea of this show a reality, and now because of it women and men who have been trafficked will receive much needed aid and more people are aware. Approximately 27 million people are trafficked in order to generate $40 billion a year. I hope to continue raising  awareness of this terrible crime and ask that you take the time to see what you can do in your own community to bring about recognition of the harsh reality of what some people will do to make a dollar.

Also I am currently NYC Tastemakers’ Artist of the Month! Go here to see!

Thanks so much for your support!

Love

-Hope

Filed under: Shows — Hope on August 12, 2010 @ 12:08 am

This Saturday, August 14th, I am performing at my church block party in the East Village. Another FREE show. I go on at 2:00pm, @ East 7th St., between Ave “A” and 1st Ave. I’m really looking forward to this show, because I know the energy will be amazing. It’s my first outdoor show ever, pretty neat to have my first in Manhattan. And hello if you come you will get FREE HOT DOGS and WATER!!! Whaaaaat??!? What could be better on a Saturday afternoon? There will also be kids games, a moon bounce, several vendors and even more performances!!! If you can’t make it early enough for my performance stop by any way, the whole shabang begins at 12pm and goes until 6pm. Another band, Goodbye Picasso, goes on before I do. For more info visit: citylightnyc.com/blockparty.html
I hope to see you there!!

It’s ABOUT TIME

Finally guys, I’m back on the face of the earth!

And in celebration of me being back I shall sing….I’ll be gigging again starting this August, so be sure to keep checking out my site for what’s next. So sorry to keep my faithful fans waiting so long. The first show I have lined up is August 7th at Googies Lounge (at The Living Room), a nice intimate setting in the L.E.S. at 154 Ludlow St. NY, NY (http://www.livingroomny.com/googies) @ 8:30pm. AND IT’S FREE! So there’s really no reason you shouldn’t come.

Gideon Brown opens @ 7:30 and my friend Adam Sullivan (http://adamsullivan.com/) goes on @ 9:30.

The next show is only a week after on August 14th. Not sure of any details, other than that it’s an awesome block party and fun will be had by all who attend. Deets will follow when I have them, until then tweets about the fact that I can still sing. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
