Kat Perkins isn’t afraid to take risks. Take last week’s performance on “The Voice” where the Minneapolis rocker turned Daft Punk’s electro-pop hit “Get Lucky” into a heavy metal blowout. Strategically, she wanted to shake it up by leaving behind — at least for one night — the classic rock songs viewers have come to expect her to sing. Not only did she have social media buzzing after her performance, she also caught country superstar Reba McEntire’s attention.
Minneapolis singer Kat Perkins has made quite an impression on “The Voice.” During the recent playoffs of the NBC singing competition, she had all four celebrity coaches singing her praises thanks to a powerhouse delivery of Journey’s “Open Arms.”
A YouTube video helped Minneapolis musician and nanny Kat Perkins land a spot on “The Voice.” Last year, a video was posted on YouTube of Perkins singing Adele’s “Someone Like You” at an Amsterdam airport, where she was on a layover during a trip to perform for the troops in the Middle East. Producers from the NBC show saw the clip and liked it so much they invited her to try out for the TV singing competition.
