Hi, I’m Rebekah Hopkins and I’m a Commercial Voice major at Belmont University in Nashville. I was actually born in Nashville but have lived in Tallahassee since I was 3 years old.
At 14 I taught myself how to play guitar and started playing at Open Mic nights around town. I was lucky enough to go to Leon High School where I was a part of their amazing performing arts program... Go Big Red!! When I was 15 I started a band with a few friends called The Good Little Chickens. We started playing anywhere we could get a gig and over the last 5 years we grew from a little high school garage band to a full 9-piece band that was booked every weekend! We were one a handful of local bands chosen to perform at the Word of South festival and have been fortunate enough to perform at some of the best venues in Tallahassee and the Panhandle as well as at many music festivals and private events. Some of our favorite venues to play are The Moon, Junction@Monroe, Fifth and Thomas, The Wilbury, Fathoms, The Bowery and Island Wings. Being the lead singer for TGLCs has been one of the best experiences of my life!
At Belmont I am having a different musical adventure. I’m part of an auditioned award-winning a capella ensemble called Prismatics and an auditioned show choir called Company. I have had the opportunity to perform on the televised PBS special, Christmas at Belmont, as well as at Open Mic nights and private events around Nashville.
I love music and I love performing. I play the guitar, ukulele, piano and harmonica and I perform everything from Blues, Motown and Jazz to Country, Pop, Indy and Southern Rock . Music is what brings me the most joy and what I think I’m meant to do. It has a way of filling my soul. Whether I’m feeling anxious, stressed, worried, insecure or sad... music always has a way of turning me around and setting me on the right path again and for that I am grateful!!
