 Hope, was born in Chicago, IL., the 4th child in a family of 7, 3 girls and 4 boys. If I had to describe LaTanja, two words come to mind Natural Talent. Her strong chops and passionate delivery never disappoints. Her tough life experiences have honed her into a singing dynamo such as you have rarely experienced. At the age of 8 she lost her younger brother Lawrence run over and killed by a car, it left an early emotional scar that she draws on to this day.

Her career began on a coffee table at the age of 6 with a brush as the mic, she made dozens of guest appearances at her parents parties. Her next arena the church would help her develop her God given talent to the fullest, Pews and seats would quickly fill up, when Latanja was going to sing. Her vibrant and soulful voice put her in demand very Sunday. During High School she frequently sang in school plays and musicals, being awarded for her efforts at every level.

She has three original CDs and a current original single.  (To Trayvon Martin
....One Mother to Another ).  At the age of 20 she was on her way to being a
star, a death in the family and a crushing blow at an audition in Disney World
drove her to seek solace in the church. When she lived in Orlando, she auditions for the part in the musical Cinderella at Disney World. When it was her time to sing she stole the show, other contestants were getting up and walking out. The remainder gave her a standing ovation. The judges gave her the lowest score of everybody. Well she was crushed and ran out of the building. One of the judges followed her and told her she won the audition but they just couldnt pick her for the part of Cinderella. Will over 20 years later she coming out and you will have the pleasure of
