The song was one of her favorites while competing on the show, she told the crowd.

MEDORA - Even Mother Nature knew how special Friday was for Medora - It was the day Kat Perkins came home.
The morning rain gave way to the rock singer and “Voice” semi finalist from Scranton, who played for a sold-out crowd. She credited her time with the Medora Musical, saying there was no better place to start her career than where it all began.
“It was basically my college,” said Perkins, a former Burning Hills Singer of five years. “I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I’m so glad that my career started here.”
The concert was her first in North Dakota. Fans cheered her on as she sang songs from her run on “The Voice” and her new single, “Fearless,” which was released earlier this week. She said she couldn’t have reached her goals without the support of her fans.
“Not only did I do this show for my fans,” she said. “I am now standing here because of my fans.
Perkins said she hopes the weather holds out so she can sing for more today. Rain is forecasted throughout the day. Officials will not make a decision to postpone or cancel the concert until showtime. The Theodore Roosevelt Medora Foundation is in talks with Perkins to set an alternate concert date if she cannot perform.
