Katy Perry Capital Cities
Katy Perry is a proficient singer, songwriter and actress. Katy developed an interest for music at a very young age, but due to limited exposure to pop and rock music, her initial passion was to pursue a career in gospel music. Her debut release in 2001, titled ‘Katy Hudson’ could be classified under the gospel umbrella. With the passage of time however, the Christian artist not only transformed her music, but herself too, as she became a bona fide pop star. Her rise on the music scene as a pop star took place in 2008, with the release of her second album, ‘One of the Boys’. The album made it to the top ten in the US and officially established Katy Perry as a legit pop star. To date the artist has released four studio albums and has completed several immensely successful tours. Her latest album, ‘Prism’ was released in 2013, and continuing her success story, it made it to the Billboard 200 chart.
