“Currently, I am a K-8 teacher at Milwaukee Montessori School, and I am doing this as well,” said B~Free.
She thinks there will even be some students in her audience.
“That is my hope. A few of their parents are followers of mine on my Facebook page. And they said they were going to be out here tonight,” said B~Free.
B~Free has released two albums. She recently performed at Turner Hall. The singer songwriter even producers her own work. Tonight, she hopes even more people start to pick up her music.
“I feel like this is a big break and whether she sees me or not I hope there is enough people from the city who can take away what they think i am as an artist,” said B~Free.
If you didn’t catch B-Free here at Summerfest, you can see her next week on Tuesday at Chill on the Hill.
