A Conversation with Spencer Battiest
Since then, he has been featured live on ESPN, EPSN2, HBO and Showtime. He has opened for major artists such as Aerosmith, Sting and The Police. The March 2008 issue of Rolling Stone touted his grand performance at London’s Hyde Park before an astonishing crowd of over 100,000 music lovers with other high-profile performers including John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Jason Mraz, The Bangles and Eric Clapton.
He recently appeared for a three-day show at Hard Rock LIVE in Hollywood, FL featuring all original music. He is currently recording with top producers and collaborating with celebrity artists such as Ray J, eager to share his incredible talent as an entertainer.
An inspiration to young people throughout the world, he retains strong ties to his own Native people. He is a proud member of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, with whom he collaborates to promote Hard Rock internationally through commercials and interviews.
Spencer, along with supermodel Petra Nomcova and R&B artist Sean Kingston, also participates as a global ambassador for charity through “Global Angels”—a charity founded by the mother of Natasha Beddingfield.
