NBC’s The Voice Season 6 top 5 contestant Kat Perkins has just released her new Christmas EP “A Kat Perkins Christmas”. “ I was born for Christmas! Literally” states Perkins. “I wanted to bring the holiday cheer to the stage with all my favorite Christmas songs! Some are my childhood favorite, some are my favorite from church on Christmas Eve, others are my new modern spin on Christmas classics! Something for everyone!”
From rural North Dakota, Perkins grew up in a town so small the population only recently went from ‘unincorporated’ to 281. Almost as soon as she stepped off the stage of her high-school graduation, she went 600 miles east to Minneapolis, Minnesota – where her enormous talent and undeniable stage presence carved out a place for her on both the music and theater stages of the Twin Cities. Those who saw her as ‘Columbia’ Twin Cities’ Hit production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, are still talking about it. (http://www.startribune.com/this-rocky-rocks-hard/129953423/)
Perkins proudly performs overseas for our troops in the Middle East. In 2013 on the way home from a USO show, Perkins gave an impromptu performance around a piano in an airport in Amsterdam – a video went viral, and Hollywood took notice.
A year later, she had not only been invited to audition for THE VOICE but went all the way to the top 5 where her coach Adam Levine said what many had said for weeks: “Kat Perkins is hands down one of the best singers we’ve ever had on The Voice.”
After the conclusion of The Voice, Perkins began traveling across the country sharing with kids from elementary to high-school her unique message of remaining determined, courageous and following their dreams. (http://youtu.be/1BDHvJNvt5g)
Her debut album ‘Drive’ was released this year on July 10th to rave reviews.
