Hope Loftis (born June 5, 1972) is a speaker, artist, studio lead and background vocalist and frequent background vocalist with the Music City Connection on the Huckabee Show (Governor Mike Huckabee). She also serves on the praise and worship team at her home church, Three Oaks Church in Gallatin, TN (Pastors Clay & Tawana Baggett).
Since Hope was a very young girl she, along with her four brothers have been involved in ministry and music as her parents were evangelist/pastors for many years.
Hope has recorded on numerous projects and has been privileged to be a featured vocalist and/or provide background vocals for artists such as Reba McEntire, Carman, Darlene Zschech, The Isaacs, Dottie Rambo, Bobby Caldwell, Chuck Negron, Deana Carter, Jo Dee Messina, John Schneider, Mickey Gilley, Johnny Lee, Kelly Wright (Fox News), Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr., Jonathan Cain of Journey, T. Graham Brown, Ayla Brown, Mark Farner, Felix Cavaliere, Sam Moore (the original Soul Man), TG Sheppard, Kelly Lang, as well as many other artists who have recorded projects in the Nashville area.
Hope especially has a heart for praise and worship and enjoys leading old and new songs alike. This comes from a great heritage from her mother Linda and older brother Sam whom she watched, learned and participated with countless times in church services and concerts throughout the years. They remain her biggest influences today.
Other influences of Hope are the great Russ Taff (also a featured vocalist on Hope’s EP), Andraé Crouch, Gary Oliver, Whitney Houston, CeCe Winans, Tony Bennett, Vince Gill and Barry Manilow.
Hope volunteers and ministers at the “Nashville Rescue Mission/Hope Center for Women” in Nashville. She is also very active in her community with great passion about raising awareness concerning ovarian cancer after losing her mother to the disease in 2002.
Hope has been a featured speaker and provided praise and worship for various ladies retreats as well as her home church. Hope released her first solo EP at Oak Tree Studio (brothers Paul and Tre' Corley, owners) in July of 2016.
Hope loves versatility in her music style so you will hear pop, rock, contemporary folk and most definitely praise and worship (which is most dear to her heart).
Her project, Fade Away, is available on CD, ITunes, Google Play, and Amazon as well as other music outlets.
Hope is a proud wife, mother, grandmother, sister and auntie. She resides in Hendersonville, TN alongside her husband, Michael, of 29 years. They have three grown children, Austin 26, Caleb 24 and Alexys 22.
