Katy Perry was born as Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson in 1984 in Santa Barbara, California in the United States. When she was 15 some Nashville rock veterans noticed her singing skills in church. They took her to Nashville where they taught her to polish up her writing skills and to play guitar. She signed to a gospel label when she was 15 and released her first album under her real name, Katy Hudson. She signed with Capitol Records in 2004. She released her album entitled One of the Boys in June 2008. The album reached the number 9 spot on the Billboard Top 200 and has sold more than 800,000 copies. The album also performed well in the UK and Australia. She is definately a very talented girl and worthy of being featured on Running Wolf’s Rant.
