The world’s very first female beatboxing champion is performing at the Dinah this year! After winning us over on America’s Got Talent, Butterscotch went on to perform alongside Tony Bennett, Wyclef Jean, Earth, wind & Fire, and other music legends. Her reinterpretation of George Gershwin’s “Summertime” in 2013 helped catapult her quick rise to fame, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the video.
Butterscotch has been described as a talented one woman vocal symphony, mixing together influences of Jazz, Hip Hop, R&B, and Classical, either solo or with her band. She recently releases a series of EP’s called “The Scotch Tapes” which you can stream HERE.
In a 2016 interview with Refinery 29, the artist shared the adversity she has faced as a gay and biracial woman in the music industry. “Being gay and biracial in the music industry, and being a woman, it’s a little scary at times,” she told Refinery 29’s Arianna Davis. “I’ve had people tell me: Don’t cut your hair. Get a fake boyfriend. Don’t come out, because then you’re going to lose your male audience.” You can read the full interview HERE.
