Betty Who

Who Is Betty Who?


Who Is Betty Who? If you don't ask, “Who?” when I mention our guest today is Betty Who, it's probably because you are one of the 12 million people who have watched the viral YouTube video “Spencer and Dustin's Wedding Proposal.” The elaborately choreographed video unfolds in a Utah Home Depot and the soundtrack is Betty’s song "Somebody Loves You." Betty Who herself is originally from Australia and came to the U.S. to study cello at the Interlochen Center for The Arts in Michigan. She later attended The Berklee School of Music and let her inner pop singer out. Betty says, “Took me a long time to feel comfortable saying that I was a singer and that I wanted to be a songwriter and that I wanted to do this. ” Her album Take Me When You Go is out today and Betty joins us in the studio.
