Before she was a mega-huge pop star, Katy Perry was a Christian singer. She went by her birth name at the time, Katy Hudson.
I have friends that went to go see her perform during this time, and remember her being really good. You can see that in this video. I even found some of her music from back then on YouTube, and it's great. A lot different sound than what we get from Katy now, but still, fantastic.
This is some footage of her on tour back then, and it's kinda interesting to take a glimpse into the life of 16 year old Katy. Enjoy!
