Char Butler

Char Butler's appreciation for the fine arts began through the influence of her artistic father. She was identified as having a gift of voice and started singing at local church services. She started private vocal training and playing clarinet at an early age. Her first live radio singing broadcast was at the age of eleven on a local channel in Oklahoma. She broadened her classical training by studying opera, singing as a colatura soprano at the age of thirteen. She sang with the Christian Dimensions, a local sing out group who toured the United States in the 70’s. The group was on televised in various states and recorded one album. Throughout her secondary school years she sang in many music competitions. She bought her first guitar at the age of seventeen and started performing folk songs for local entertainment, following the style of Joan Baez and Carol King.
