H-F grad recalls journey to appearance on TV’s ‘The Voice’

On stage, Janelle Butler goes by Oliv Blu. The name is based on a decision that, like most of her artistic identity, can be tied directly to the life experiences that have shaped her. “When she was a baby, Janelle used to beat box,” said Dana Butler, mother of the H-F graduate, who was a recent contestant on NBC’s “The Voice.”
