Hope checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace on Thursday (January 22), talking about the inauguration of Barack Obama on Tuesday and how she spent the historic day. The Los Angeles based singer songwriter tells readers:
As I write this blog I am still overwhelmed with joy and emotion! My President is Black! Having grown up with little history in school of my African American heritage, I spent the day glued to the TV with my wonderful family and a table full of home cooked vegan “soul food”. As their voices and sweet aromas were warmed the living room…I felt free! When Obama was inaugurated he became the 44th President of the United States of America and the first African American hold the highest earthly title of the most powerful nation in the world! I can safely say that I am only one among the millions that are so proud this day has come!
