Time: 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM

As the official hotel partner of the March on Washington Film Festival 2019, Eaton DC will host a three-night series of comedy, music, spoken word/beat-box. Tonight’s performer is Butterscotch.

Butterscotch, the retro-futuristic, voice percussionist virtuosa, is a force to be reckoned with in today’s music scene. Butterscotch has rocked stages worldwide and leaves audiences clamoring for more. A powerful blend of Jazz, Soul, Hip Hop, and R&B, Butterscotch’s musical world is as unique as her genetic makeup. Born of mixed heritage (African American/Native American/Asian/German) and a proud LGBTQ team player and activist, Butterscotch’s physical beauty and musical elegance are testament to her power as an artist. Her music always contains a message to reach those who are in need of love and inspiration and addresses mental health because she suffered severely with depression in her youth and knows that music harnesses the power to save lives.

Butterscotch began her career in hip hop’s underground beatbox battle scene, ultimately being crowned the world’s first female beatbox champion in 2005. Soon thereafter, a breakthrough performance on America’s Got Talent introduced her to the world when she performed her version of the jazz standard My Funny Valentine — simultaneously singing, beatboxing and playing the piano. The exposure on national TV gained her thousands of fans and kickstarted a prolific career that continues to this day.

She has traveled the world and has performed at the most prestigious jazz festivals in Europe such as the Montreux Jazz Festival, Baloise Session, Leverkusener Jazztage, Ingolsadter Jazztage, as well as in Asia at the Hong Kong Jazz Festival, Jarasum Festival in Korea and Java Jazz Festival in Indonesia. Butterscotch has opened for Erykah Badu, Thievery Corporation, Tony Bennet, Talib Kweli, KRS-One and has performed alongside legends such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Sergio Mendes, Bobby McFerrin, Nile Rodgers, LA Philharmonic, and the WDR Big Band, to name a few. She has become a hit at many conferences, in the past couple years, including HATCH, EG Conference, C2 Montreal, Ciudade de las Ideas, HIVE and IDEACITY. She has found her passion as a public speaker where she creatively mixes in elements of her unique art form and music.
