About Josephine Beavers
Beginning at age 3, when she impulsively tried to jump onto the stage and join Ella Fitzgerald at a Howard Theater concert, Josephine Beavers knew she was born to sing. She absorbed the spirit and vocal techniques of those artists who specialized in the Great American Songbook, learning most of all the responsibility of bringing these works to full musical life in her unique way. After marrying McDonald's executive Robert Beavers Jr. and relocating to Chicago, she would headline at corporate events, open for The Count Basie Orchestra at the Regal Theater and tour with the McDonald's All-American High School Band. After years of setting music aside to concentrate on her family, Beavers is back with her album, Prime Time.
