KAT PERKINS STILL GOING STRONG

Kat Perkins, originally from North Dakota, but now our very own Minnesota resident, rocked Season 6 of The Voice; and continues to entertain people all over the world.

I interviewed Kat Thursday and learned that she just returned from her 11th tour in the Middle East performing for troops. She says she especially loves to go over seas during the holidays to bring a little bit of 'home' to those that are protecting and fighting for our country.

She is one of the busiest people I know. She flew in this week, for many local performances.
