In the latest episode of Hootworthy, we had the incredible opportunity to sit down with The BoykinZ, a sensational country music group that's been taking TikTok by storm. What sets them apart? Well, they're not just any band—they're four talented sisters, three of whom graduated from Georgia Cyber Academy (GCA), with one still making her way through GCA high school. In our chat, we uncovered how attending GCA influenced their extraordinary journey and the unique bond that makes their music so special.
For The BoykinZ, the GCA experience has been more than just academics— a journey that strengthened their sisterly bond. They leaned on each other, collaborated, and made each other feel at ease, ultimately enhancing their chemistry and musical harmony. Being able to spend more time together, thanks to the flexibility provided by GCA, was a game-changer. It allowed them to take their schoolwork with them as they embarked on their musical adventures, striking a harmonious balance between their studies and budding careers.
The BoykinZ have already graced numerous stages across the country, but a few performances hold a special place in their hearts. One standout memory was their trip to New York, where they performed at a school. To their surprise, the students had learned the choreography to their hit single "Girls Night" and performed it for them.
Their Texas trip was another highlight, where they performed during a rodeo's halftime show. Singing and dancing in the dirt under the Texas sky, they embraced the true spirit of country music. Also, singing the national anthem at a Miami Heat game was an unforgettable experience. Lastly, performing with Shania Twain during the Queen of Me Tour was a whirlwind experience. Though it felt quick, they shared the stage with a country music legend and sang two songs to a huge crowd.
While The BoykinZ have ventured far and wide, they hold a special place in their hearts for the moments they enjoyed at GCA. From receiving art kits to hopping on the mic during live classes, these experiences added a unique flavor to their education. Interacting with their peers and teachers was equally cherished, providing them with childhood memories and a profound connection to their school.
When asked which singers they'd love to swap voices with, The BoykinZ had an impressive list. From Stevie Wonder's soulful tones to Anita Baker's smooth melodies, Whitney Houston's powerhouse vocals, Jasmine Sullivan's soul-stirring voice, Rihanna's captivating sound, and Luther Vandross's timeless tunes, their choices reflect their deep appreciation for a wide range of musical styles.
The BoykinZ had some words of wisdom for current GCA students:
- Actively participate in live classes
- Be present
- Stay on camera.
But most importantly, they encouraged everyone to dream big. Their own journey from GCA to the big stage is a testament to what's possible when you set your sights high.
To give us a taste of their musical talent, The BoykinZ sang the chorus of "These Boots are Made for Walking" right in the studio. Their voices blended harmoniously, leaving us wanting more.
