“We are nominating Britton-Grae because he is an outstanding individual, incredibly intelligent, and happens to be one of Colorado’s youngest successful DJ’s. He goes by the stage name “DJ Dopewave” and this year he has definitely made waves of his own.
Britt has been the subject of two murals, one in downtown Denver and the other in Milwaukee, WI. As a student, he is a part of the highly talented and gifted program for Denver Public Schools. We are thankful for this opportunity to nominate such an amazing child, and of course we appreciate an outlet such as myblackcolorado.com for allowing us to take part.”
