Based in the Black Hills of South Dakota, 23 year old singer and songwriter Sophia Beatty sings with passion and heart that can be truly felt. She is known for her ability to sing classic jazz and soul cover music. From Whitney Houston to Natalie Cole to Aretha Franklin, she covers a whole variety of well known music that gets people up on their feet and singing along.
Building on this creative powerhouse of covers, Sophia has recently taken to the streets to share her original creations as well, which have been applauded greatly by the regional music community. She is already well on her way to becoming a staple of the northern plains musical experience. Sophia's gift of synesthesia makes her original acoustic songs unique and emotionally moving.
