Founded by Kaitlin McGaw (she/her) and Tommy Shepherd (he/him/they), the Alphabet Rockers create brave spaces to shape a more equitable world through hip-hop. Their Grammy-nominated 2018 album, Rise Shine #Woke, reached 300K kids and families since its release, inspiring American kids to stand up to hate and be their brave and beautiful selves. Their second Grammy-nominated album The Love (2019), lifts the voices of the trans, two-spirit, and gender non-conforming communities. On The Love, you hear the intergenerational sound of the Rockers, with Kali de Jesus (he/him), Lillian Ellis (she/her/hers), Maya Fleming (she/her), and Tommy Shepherd III (he/him) joining McGaw & Shepherd in anthems for change.
With headlining performances at Lollapalooza, The Kennedy Center, San Francisco Pride Festival, Art & Soul Festival, and the Smithsonian Museum of African American History and Culture, and in over 50 schools across the country each year, diverse audiences love their contemporary sound and positive messages.
They are not only Grammy nominees, but additional kudos include American Library Association’s Top Album in 2017, 2018, and 2019 and they won the Parents’ Choice Award for their 5-album catalog. Alphabet Rockers appeal to a broad audience with lyrics like “I will stand up for you” and “I shine in my beautiful skin,” landing them in the top 5 songs of 2018 on Kids Place Live on SiriusXM Radio.
On-Demand tickets for this show, which are good for an entire household, are $9.99 and are available at Kahilu.TV.
