“Beccah is an astute young talent endowed with beauty, brains and a spectacular sense of creativity. She is an attentive student who embraces challenge and consistently delivers a superior performance. She is truly a joy to work with and a ‘Shining Star’.”
Lorna Greenwood, The Nashville Vocal Coach
Brilliant singer, skillful songwriter and gifted actress Beccah was born in July 23,1998 as Brittany Rebecca Hewitt and began singing and writing music as soon as she could talk! When she was less than a year old she recorded her first song on her dad’s cell phone titled “One Day in My Heart”. Though it never became a top 40 hit, it marked the beginning of a passion which she has continued to pursue. At age 8, Beccah began voice lessons with Singer Lorna Greenwood and began performing locally in Jacksonville, Florida. She quickly became known as “The Little Girl with the Big Voice”. At age 10 she recorded her first CD with two-time Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter Dennis Scott in Nashville, Tennessee. That same year this little starlet was selected to perform as an opening act for country music’s Lorrie Morgan at The Clay County Fair. Mark Olivarius, Lorrie’s manager was very impressed with Beccah’s talent and performance and expressed great interest in working with her but Rebecca’s parents weren’t quite ready to pack up and move to Nashville! The months to follow brought forth countless performances at civic events and festivals before thousands of spectators. She performed patriotic material and the National Anthem, which created a demand for her to perform at many more charity runs, sporting, and metropolitan events! She has sung the National Anthem at the Jacksonville Suns Baseball Stadium and started the City of Jacksonville’s Veteran’s Day Parade atop a fire truck! She even sang the National anthem at the inauguration of City Council President Richard Clark, which was televised and simulcast live on the internet.
At the age of 11, Beccah joined NSAI and attended their Songwriter Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. It was there that she realized her extraordinary gift writing pop music. But singing and songwriting are only two of her skills. Beccah is a classically trained pianist and also plays guitar. She also started acting in elementary school and made her debut performance in the 4th grade in the lead role of “Little Mermaid” as Ariel. She has since completed middle school at Lavilla School of the Arts and attended the nationally recognized and Grammy Award winning Douglas Anderson School of the Arts as a high school freshman in the musical theater department. She has performed in musical theater productions of “The Pied Piper”, “Beauty and the Beast” (lead), “Once on This Island” (lead), “Shout” (lead), as well as the lead role in the student-written opera “The Frosted Land” which was attended by representatives of the Metropolitan Opera. While at La Villa, her chorus class toured and performed numerous concerts in Greece, in which Beccah was the featured soloist singing American Idol, Katharine McPhee’s arrangement of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” which unfailingly brought her audiences to tears. While on that tour, she entered and won an impromptu talent contest with her original song “My Promise”, a song about a teen girl whose friend is contemplating suicide. Beccah has been interviewed and featured on local TV news stations and in local news paper articles. She was chosen to perform the closing song for the Jacksonville Jaguar Foundation’s Straight Talk television show in 2011.
Beccah manages a busy solo and school performance schedule as an Honor Roll student. She relocated in 2013 to Dallas, Texas with her family where she attends the nationally acclaimed Booker T. Washington School of the Arts in the vocal department (in the top 5 arts schools in the nation). She is currently working with the production team from Ballistic Audio: Brad Stewart (Shinedown, Puddle of Mudd and Fuel), Josh Like and Stan Martell on her first all original works demo CD.
