Katelyn McCarter doesn’t bring a picture perfect past to the stage when she sings. Instead, she brings life’s obstacles that she has overcome that inspires her to create music by the invigorating strength she receives from God.
“We go through a lot in life and as human beings, we’re really down on ourselves,” said McCarter. “I love to reach out to people and make them feel more confident about life.”
Influenced by artists like Natalie Grant and TobyMac, McCarter is a Christian pop singer/entertainer from Richmond, Virginia.. A two-time International Music and Entertainment Association Christian Female Vocalist, Christian Entertainer of the Year award-winner, McCarter is on a roll and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.
“Katelyn is a refreshing, authentically talented young lady who wants to serve God every day, both through her music and everyday life,” said All Access Christian. She is now working with Grammy-nominated and Dove Award winning producer Rusty Varenkamp.
Varenkamp’s past projects include TobyMac, Michael W. Smith, David Crowder, MUTEMATH and Tenth Avenue North.
McCarter’s past performances include opening for Amy Grant, Big Daddy Weave, Kerrie Roberts, Ryan Stevenson, and Sidewalk Prophets.
In every performance, McCarter paints a memorable musical moment for her audience. In light of her passion to inspire and encourage her younger audience, McCarter is sponsored by Childfund International as a live artist act. At each performance, McCarter talks to the crowd about the organization and provides information about different children being sponsored around the world.
“I find it really important to be inspiring to young kids considering how much pressure they receive from social media, social networks, etc.,” McCarter said.
McCarter has two of her songs from her new CD “Chasing The Wind” playing on various Christian FM radio in the nation. Her new CD “Chasing The Wind” is now available online through iTunes, Amazon and all major digital download stores. You can also purchase a physical copy of her CD through her Merch Store.
“I couldn’t do any of this without the strength God has fired up inside of me. I am a daughter he has strengthened beyond words and I cannot imagine one breath without Him.”
