BiographyCassadee Blake Pope (born August 28, 1989) is an American singer and the former lead vocalist of the alternative rock/ powerpop band Hey Monday. She was the winner of the third season of the television music competition show "The Voice."
In 2004, at the age of 14, Pope started singing in local bands. She began as a singer in the award-winning St. Ann School Jazz Band while in middle school in West Palm Beach. While in high school in Wellington, Florida, Pope formed the band Blake (titled after her middle name) with good friend Mike Gentile. Unfortunately the project disbanded before being signed. In 2008, she and Gentile then, with Alex Lipshaw, Michael "Jersey" Moriaty, and Elliot James, founded the pop punk band Hey Monday. At the end of 2009, Pope confirmed via her Twitter that Elliot James had departed the band. She appeared in Fall Out Boy's video for "America's Suitehearts", from their 2008 album Folie à Deux. In the video, Pope plays a girl wearing large glasses talking by the telephone who is then kidnapped. She also provided guest vocals for The Cab's remix version of their song Take My Hand that appeared on Fall Out Boy's mixtape, Welcome to the New Administration, and appeared in the music video for it the following summer of 2009. On October 7, 2008, Hey Monday released their first studio album , Hold on Tight. Pope wrote two songs and co-wrote the other nine songs. Also, she provided vocals for American cowpunk band 500 Miles to Memphis album "Sunshine in a Shot Glass" in a song entitled "Darlin'". She had a guest appearance as herself in the Degrassi: The Next Generation TV Movie, Degrassi Goes Hollywood, along with Pete Wentz. With Hey Monday being sponsored by clothing company Glamour Kills, Pope has subsequently modelled for their online store. On March 15, 2010, Pope announced via her Twitter that she had finished recording vocals for the second album "Beneath It All". It will be released on August 17, 2010. She also makes a brief appearance in All Time Low's CD/DVD, Straight to DVD, released in May 2010. She, her bandmates as well as band members of Stereo Skyline appeared on an episode of MTV's Silent Library.
