The Mic Changed My Life: GSU Grad Brittina Bethune ‘Queen of Turn Up’ Uses Gift To Entertain and Encourage
In 2014, Bethune leaped out on faith, got a mic in her hand and she’s been hosting/MCing ever since. She says the happiest she’s ever been is on a stage with a mic in her entertaining a crowd!
“It’s a true passion of mine but I would also like to think this is the one gift God gave.” “It’s something I do with ease and I’d like to think I’m relatively good at it,” she said.
After doing her first live break on 103.7 Tha Beat nearly two years ago on November, Bethune continued to work on her craft day and night.
“I’m always trying to find ways to get better and better,” she said. ” I won’t stop until I’m the best in the business, I love my job and I LOVE my God,” she explained.
The GSU graduate said that faith without work is dead and that is why she continues to work her tail off to show other people who have a dream as a youngster to follow their passion, that they can do it, if they believe in themselves and get to work!
Bethune said when she first got into hosting and MCing that she knew it was a male dominated business, but she never detoured from it because she also knew that she could do the job just as well or better than any other man in the industry. In the future, Bethune plans to put her name in the hat to host one of the music’s biggest award shows, the BET Awards.
She has the passion for it and most definitely is gaining the necessary experience. Tina B has hosted a number of events at school, church’s, clubs all across the city and she is now looking to expand city to nation.
Some of her work includes fashion shows, step shows, gospel explosions, concerts, weddings, and she appeared on BET once while hosting a homecoming GSU event.
Her supporters describe the energy that Tina B has when hosting as contagious and that she deserves her own TV show.
Getting the crowd as hype as they’ve ever been is what Tina B enjoys most, but education has always been important in her life. After earning her Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communication from GSU she was motivated to learn more. She enrolled at Bossier Parish Community College to gain some extra hands on experience.
There she had the opportunity to work on a live TV show, directed, worked on graphics. She has now earned a certification in TV production and The Business of Music.
The MC admitted herself that she may not be the most studious person you’ve ever met, but if you hand her a mic she becomes a wiz because she’s living her dream, it’s when she’s in her element.
“Everything I’ve ever wanted to do or saw myself doing is happening for me right now, it was not easy, I must say it took a lot of work, but I feel blessed.”
“The Queen of Turn Up” currently works for 103.7 Tha Beat Your #1 Hip Hop Station for the last two years where she is on Monday-Friday 7 p.m. until 12 a.m.
She is currently looking to expand her hosting/MC brand! She is the lady to host your event no matter big or small, if she is hosting it is a guaranteed “LITUATION” and guess what she is willing to travel.
Hi. To whom it may concern: My name is Brittina Tina B Bethune. Im a graduate from Grambling State University with a bachelor degree in mass communication. I work at 103.7 THA BEAT – Your #1 Hip Hop Station under the stage name #QueenMCTinaB👑💁🏽🎤💕 I've honestly never been normal. Ive never been the quiet girl. I've never been the most studious. But there was always one thing I was… I was always talkative. No matter what school I've always been the class clown (on accident). I was always the life of the party. Two years ago something happened. Two years ago God directed ALL of that, made it all make sense, cleaned it up and form the girl you see before you today ! I can honestly say I love what I do… When I am on that stage, when I am on that mic all I am is me. And every time, it touches me that the audience receives me. The me I didn't even know I loved. Everyone else holds on to. This is ME and this is what I do ! This is my career and I plan to continue walking in what I know God has for me. If you believe in me and you enjoyed what you just saw I ask that you please share this video !
