At the age of sixteen Katy gained a place at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy studying their world renowned musical theatre course in London. Whilst studying here she also performed in many of their shows in the New Wimbledon Theatre, London. During this time Katy performed in Mamma Mia with  at the Prince of Wales Theatre and was chosen to appear as the leading role of Sophie.

 

After studying Katy went to Cyprus and began her singing career singing musical theatre and pop cabaret sets in 5* hotels in Paphos and Coral Bay. During her time in Cyprus she was spotted by Andrew Lloyd Webber’s head sound technician who invited her to come and sing in front of Andrew Lloyd Webber in his home. Her next venture was a UK Tour of ‘Some Enchanted Evening’  the greatest songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein, where she was lead vocalist.

 

Katy then took a new approach to her career and was offered a fantastic contract onboard Costa Cruises as their production singer. Here she performed onboard for six months singing and dancing in their production shows in many different languages and many different genres of music. After a couple of contracts here she went to Israel and performed in a international cabaret act called ‘Five stars’. When this contract was completed Katy then went back to the cruise ships with MSC and Ibero completing two more years at sea as a production singer. Onboard Ibero she had comments from passengers and crew of how similar she was to Katy Perry and this sewed the seed for her to start her own tribute up as Katy Perry this has then followed onto a successful Taylor Swift tribute.

 

Katy can sing a variety of songs - ideal for a wedding from classical to 60's to the current pop tunes.
