There are many songstresses out there but only one got everyone to nod in love with her talks about having the eye of a tiger and being a fighter dancing through a fire. Katy Perry in the 2013 song proclaimed herself a champion, promising we will hear her roar. It was a perfect song in every way.

The only problem albeit a very insignificant one was the timing of the song. It would have been the ideal song to announce Katy’s entrance into the music space. Most of us thought she was already a roaring champion when she dropped her “One of the Boys” album in 2008.

Katy Perry as an American singer, songwriter, actress and producer started-off as a gospel musician. Considering the kind of family she came from, she must have really danced through fire when she decided to move from doing Christian gospel music to secular ones. It is believed that Katy Perry is worth $330 million.

Katy Perry’s Early Life and Career Beginnings

Born in Santa Barbara, California on 25th October 1984 to Pastors, Katy was raised in a strict Christian home and listened only to Christian/gospel music. Her debut eponymous album was a gospel album released in 2001 under Christian label Red Hill. The album received positive reviews but didn’t do well commercially selling less than 200 copies. Fast forward 7 years later, Katy opted to do secular music and moved to Los Angeles at the age of 17.

Her debut single in secular music was “Ur So Gay” (2007), the sophomore single was also her major break. Topping international charts was “I Kissed a Girl” in 2008. She then released her second album and first secular music album “One of The Boys” which received multiple platinum certifications. Her other works include “Teenage Dream” (2010) which debuted at number 1 on Billboard 200 and “Prism” (2013) whose single “Roar” topped Billboard Hot 100. Two videos from the album received over a billion views on Vevo, making her the only musician to receive multiple billion views.

As an actress, Katy Perry has lent her voice to Smurfette character in “The Smurfs” and its sequel and have also starred in 2016 movie “Zoolander 2”.

Katy’s parents, Keith Hudson (her father) and mother, Mary Perry are Pentecostal pastors. It is said that they both lived a rough life before they decided to become followers of Jesus Christ and to spread his gospel.

On several occasions, Katy and Mary have expressed that they are disappointed with the path Katy settled for in pursuit of a music career. Nonetheless, this has not affected their love for her. She is still their sweet little girl, they strive to respect her decisions but still hope she would return to God and make music that would glorify His name.

If Katy Perry’s parents were disappointed when she released the 2008 hit single “I kissed a Girl”, it is probable that they were devastated and was left wondering where they went wrong with Katy when the music video of her latest hit single “Bon Appetit” was released in 2017.

Keith and Mary brought up their kids in the ways of the Lord. Katy, her older sister named Angela and her younger brother, David who also sings, all attended Christian Schools. The couple hoped that the kids would carry on their pastoral duties.

Katy Perry got married to British comedian Russel Brand in 2010 but the marriage only lasted for 14 months.
