IN THE .......JAZZ SPOTLIGHT
Jonathan Butler

Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa October 10, 1961 during Apartheid. Jonathan started singing and playing acoustic guitar as a child. 

At thirteen, Jonathan's talents caught the ears and eyes of British record producer Clive Caulder and he was signed to Caulder's Jive Records.  Jonathan's first single broke down racial barriers, becoming the first song by a black artist to be played by white radio stations in South Africa . It earned a Sarie Award, South Africa 's equivalent to the Grammys.
