DJ Beauty and the Beatz Spins the ’14 Easter Egg Roll
Can you imagine being just 12 years old and doing what you love? Now imagine being that young and doing what you love…in front of President Obama and the entire White House staff! Las Vegas born DJ Beauty and the Beatz was exposed to music by her father long before she could even crawl. Riding in the car with him running errands, she realized her own love for beats and lyrics. By six years of age, she began recognizing samples used by different artists and shouting “air” suggestions to the radio DJ to play certain songs together based on their similarities. It was at this point that her mother introduced her to the idea of becoming a DJ herself. While she embraced the idea, finding someone to mentor a six year old proved to be an extremely difficult task. Realizing this rare and remarkable talent, her parents packed nothing but clothes into a rental car, left everything in Las Vegas behind, and drove to DC to pursue a career for DJ Beauty and the Beatz as a professional DJ. Now residing in DC, with a style of her own, DJ Beauty and the Beatz, at the tender age of 12, and 4 years under her belt, is continuing to perfect her craft, a task that many adults have yet to accomplish. Since her move in August of 2010, she has DJ’d for retailers, clubs, and events. Now, she’s gearing up to spin for the 2014 Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on the South Lawn of the White House. The annual event is focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape” and will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. The activities will encourage children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! Initiative.
I am so honored to have been asked to perform at one of the largest public White House events. It’s so cool! -DJ Beauty and the Beatz
