Beth's father, Johnny Griffith, was a member of the famed Motown band The Funk Brothers and the keyboardist on countless Motown hits. Beth got her start in music working as a receptionist at Harmonie Park Studios, where she began doing voice-over work, singing on demos, and caught the ear of legendary producer Michael J. Powell. Powell introduced Beth to eight-time Grammy Award winner Anita Baker, who hired her as a background vocalist, and Beth went on to spend the next five years touring the world. Currently, Beth is a background vocalist for Motown recording artist Kem.
