This was around the era our new Vice President Kamala Harris entered the California Justice System to do the same, Change lives!

Hope then began her musical journey climbing another ladder with keys in the field of entertainment as a jazz singer. She has traveled and toured throughout the region and different countries performing with different cultures and now after those 20 more years performing and more recently a vocalist in the Paul McDonald 17-piece Big Band, it was an awakening that it was her time to lead her own Big Band Orchestra. Sassy, entertaining and dynamic was always her way, which is what makes up this great performer who now has introduced her own Big sound that moves the soul. The dynamic, newly formed ” Hope Diamond NuSoul Orchestra!”

As a contralto with a rich mellow voice, Hope has always had a sultry style about her and has lent her voice to some wonderful background work for gospel recordings and standards when not performing. She can cross over to pop or jazz, Motown or swing, gospel or rock and a little bit of country when requested. She loves it all.
