Artist: Corey H aka Mr. Hopkins
It has been five years since you gave up your passion for someone you thought was permanent; then ended up stuck behind a desk counting the seconds until the clock strikes 5 pm…just to question everything again tomorrow.
R&B artist Corey H was in this thought process five years ago until he looked out the window to read, “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.”
It took one sentence for Corey to put in his two weeks notice and return to his first real love, music.
Where the Journey Began
Inspired by Disney’s animated feature The Lion King, elementary school boy, Corey Hopkins, showcased his vocals by mimicking Simba’s unique voice to the local school girls. Although, the real push he needed came from the 1991 film about a Motown singing group named The Five Heartbeats. “They had such a big influence on me wanting to stand on stage and just sing my heart out because I saw what they did and I was like man, I wanna do that,” shared Corey H, as he reminisced on his childhood days.
It did not take long for the Katy, Texas native to catch the attention from the locals and record labels alike. Founded by LaFace Records, Corey signed with Music World Entertainment (owned by Beyonce’s father, Mathew Knowles) and was instantly placed in a boy band called Mason Road. In a short time frame Corey was able to catch a glimpse of what music could really do when his band’s performance for the troops was broadcasted on FOX26 NEWS.
