Katelyn McCarter, a Four-time Music Award Winner has captured the attention of the industry. 
From a young age, Katelyn has taken every opportunity to explore her natural musical impulses. Katelyn’s love for performance and talent was apparent to her family who supported Katelyn’s creative inclinations, encouraging her to study voice, piano and dance. She graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Music in 2012. 

Katelyn is much more than her stunning, unforgettable voice. She is an active member of her community, staying involved with anti bullying programs, non-profit concerts and performing at events where she can be an example to the young. Her selfless efforts stem from her desire to serve God through her music and in her daily life activities.
