“I’m excited about that because you know a lot of times a musical will come out and it’s successful and then the soundtrack comes out,” Hobbs said. “In this case, since I’ve spent my whole life in the music business, I’m releasing my album first and I’m hoping that the attention from my album will garner attention to helping us launch the musical.”
Hobbs has written and performed many mainstream songs, including “Angels Among Us,” which the country group Alabama recorded. She also wrote “Tsa La Gi, We are Many,” which has been proposed as the national anthem for the Cherokee Nation by the Association of the Descendents of Nancy Ward.
