This Miami bred artist began cultivating her musical styling in grade school while studying voice and piano. Her musicianship varied from singing and playing in school assemblies, local television programs, the acclaimed Miami's Children's Chorus, playing guitar with an acoustic ensemble, singing in various plays and touring with a pop/rock ensemble. After attending Hollywood's famed Musicians Institute of Technology, and a stint as a backing guitarist to some LA locals, Betty pressed pen to paper. This transition led to turning a thought into a chorus and melody from emotion into popular music.
Redefining her vision, her road to success has already begun as an artist writing/performing music for her own band, for the stage play Fine in Hollywood and independent film Chance (directed by Amber Benson of TV's Buffy The Vampire Slayer). Diverse musical ability has also enabled her to sing in a commercial video and play a date with hardcore Warner Brothers outfit Heidi . This diversity culminates work that represents Betty Navas as a talent. Talent and the ability to transform life into music are the true window to Betty's soul.

There's so much written about Paramore that I feel it would be somewhat of an injustice to just rehash any of it. Opinions vary anyway, and the facts are the facts. Wikipedia and the official Paramore website can give you all you need.
As for me? I mean why post Paramore as a Featured Artist on Girls Rock Radio if they are already so well known? Am I just another voice in a huge sea? Probably, but I truly think Paramore is a band for the ages. Still, I'm not so self-absorbed as to believe my opinion really matters all that much, and yet I do "feel" something for this band.
Hayley, Jeremy, Josh, Taylor, Zac all have immense musical talent. They can swing from something powerful and hard like Ignorance, to soft and reassuring like The Only Exception, to light and fun with That's What You Get. With a social consciousness, they can front a cause through music like We Are Broken.
Each member of the band has a personal style, and I'm sure the women in the audience find the boys in the band splendid and divine for all their style and talent, not to mention their good looks. So too with Hayley, the loveliest of flowers with unmistakable dash and voice, yet with a tenacity that, only at first blush, may seem understated. She brings a level of caring warmth to the presence that is Paramore which adds definition well beyond the music.

We're sounding all "shiny and new" and that's because I've added 72 new songs to the playlist!
If you've been listening over the past couple of days, it really has sounded awesome. All the same great music is here, but adding 72 new songs is like adding around 6 full CDs to your collection. But instead of just adding 6 new artists, there's dozens of artists represented in those 72 songs. Isn't internet radio awesome?!?
The details on everything that's been added can be found on the New Music page.
