Kat Perkins To Perform During Festival of Trees Auction (Audio)

VALLEY CITY, N.D. ( Singer Kat Perkins will perform in Valley City during the annual Festival of Trees celebration at the Eagles Club on November 28th.

CHI Mercy Health spokeswoman and co-event coordinator Stephanie Mayfield talked about the event and the Kat Perkins concert with Steve Urness during KOVC radio’s Voice of the Valley.

Mayfield said tickets for the Festival of Trees dinner show, live and silent auction will be limited to 400 people and go on sale October 26th.

Kat Perkins is an American singer and songwriter from Scranton, North Dakota. She appeared on The Voice season 6 and advanced to the television show’s semifinals. She released her first single in August 2014.

Kat Perkins is the daughter of Mark Perkins, a music teacher, and Gayle Perkins, an organist. She began performing professionally at the age of fifteen.

In 1999, Perkins graduated from high school and joined the Medora Musical. She moved to the Twin Cities after graduating from cosmetology school, where she began working in Hey City Theater Productions.

Perkins fronted Scarlett Haze, a band from Twin Cities, Minnesota. In 2005, the band opened for Bon Jovi at the Target Center in Minneapolis. Perkins had surgery on her vocal cords, which resulted in a three year hiatus from her singing career. She began working as a full-time nanny for a family with five children in Twin Cities. During her off time, Perkins traveled to the Middle East with other musicians to entertain American military troops in 2013.

In August 2014, Perkins released her first song and music video, “Fearless”. The week following the single’s release, “Fearless” placed in the top five on iTunes rock chart. “Fearless” also qualified for the first round of the Grammy Awards “Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance” competition.
