Biography

At the age of 12, she was invited by the 'Queen of Merengue', Milly Quezada, to sing with her on stage in front of a big crowd of over thousand people. In April 2004, she opened for J Records musician Cassidy as part of the all Latino girl group Coquette.

Kat and her family moved from The Bronx, US to the Dominican Republic, where she spent her time listening to Aretha Franklin and Billie Holiday records. At the age of 9, they moved back to the US, where Kat realized her potential as a singer. Kat was accepted to the Arts High School in Newark, New Jersey under the vocal instruction of Dr. Jerry Forderhase. Kat is said to have a 5 octave vocal range, comparable to Mariah Carey, Minnie Riperton, Captain Beefheart, or a tuba. In her freshman year, she responded to an audition in The Village Voice and was accepted into an all-Latina, Hip Hop/R&B group called Coquette. Kat continued to pursue her dream of becoming a solo artist and at age of 15, she entered a Coca-Cola sponsored karaoke competition. Her version of "I Will Always Love You" won the competition. After the competition, Cuban salsa singer Rey Ruiz advised Kat to start writing her own music.

On August 24th, 2007, Kat was a featured artist at the Miss Teen USA 2007 pageant. She performed her first single, Whine Up, along with two back-up dancers.
