Katherine Elizabeth Hudson was born in 1984 into a religious family in Santa Barbara, California. She grew up listening to gospel music which motivated her to take up singing. Consequently, she released an all gospel album in 2001 titled 'Katy Hudson’. Fate had a different path set for her as this album ended up not doing very well and the record label wound up closed.
Katy did not give up her music career. She proceeded to record an album with production team the Matrix, which was not released. This did not put her to despair as she moved on to sign with Capitol Music Group in 2007. It was then that Katy Perry was born. She released her breakthrough single 'I kissed a girl’ which led to her fame and success.
Since 2007, Perry has had numerous singles at the top of the charts, several awards and eleven Grammy nominations. She has gone down in history as the first female to have an album producing five number one hits. The only other individual who achieved this milestone was Michael Jackson.
Billboard dubbed Katy Perry as 2012's Woman of the Year. Up to today, Katy remains the only artist having spent 69 successive weeks in the top10 of the Billboard’s Hot 100. Perry has also released her own fragrance brands. These are Meow, Purr and, Killer Queen. In July 2011, Katy Perry made her film debut by being the voice of Smurfette in the popular movie 'The Smurfs’. She had been ranked at number 14 on the top moneymakers list in 2011 having grossed more than 11 million dollars.
Katy Perry has sold over 81 million singles and 11 million albums worldwide as of November 2013. Perry has more achievements to her name such as being dubbed the 5th Top Global Recording Artist of 2013 by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. She is set to begin her world tour in May. She is currently UNICEF’s Goodwill Ambassador. She champions the rights of women suffering from breast cancer.
