Up and coming pop artist, Jessica Anne Newham, better known as Betty Who, is coming to our beloved Terrace this week!
Born in Australia, Newham began playing cello at age 4 and moved to the United States as a teenager. She started writing songs at age 14 and began performing at the age of 16, releasing her first single “Somebody Loves You” in November of 2012. Her debut EP The Movement was critically acclaimed as the “Best EP of 2013” by Billboard Magazine and Popjustice, and with good reason.
Along with her stunning vocals, Betty Who has something special. She brings a passion and a fire that you do not want to miss, especially when you have the chance to see her live and for FREE. Her passion has not gone unnoticed, being called one of TIME’s “14 Musical Acts to Watch in 2014,” with the likes of Chance the Rapper and NoNoNo.
This past April, she released her most recent EP, Slow Dancing, which includes her single “Heartbreak Dream.” After Betty Who’s current tour, she will start opening for Katy Perry in November. After that, who knows how big she will be?
Betty Who is sure to put on a show that will make you dance. And who doesn’t love to dance? Get down to the Memorial Union Terrace Thursday, June 12th for an awesome night!
