We had the good fortune of connecting with Betsy Dudley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Betsy, why did you pursue a creative career?
I was born and raised in the state of Texas, with a biracial family where two languages were spoken in our home. My mothers family had musical group bands with her cousins and sibilings. So we grew up surrounded by music.
I always loved falling asleep listing to music. Also would imagen being on stage performing. At age 11 my sister and I joined my uncles musical band
“El Olivar”. Our first recording album at age 12. I fell on love with the thought I could transmit positive messages through my singing.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
What challenges have I gone through in order to be where I am today,? My biggest challenges was when I became a single mother of six. Working plus raising them on my own. I had to stop my dream at the time to focus only on my children. I was able to do it, like if it were all a dream. God gave me the strength and knowledge to keep going and never give up. After my children grew up and out of high school, I decided it was now my time to pursue my dreams.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I normally take my best friends and family to The Vintage Park Houston. They have shops &, restaurants.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I Mainly want to thank My Lord And Savior for giving me the strength throughout my tough times and being able to continue singing and acting in doing what I love for him. My six children have always encouraged me to keep going and never give up on my dreams. (Thank you my babies : my #1 Fans)
