Kat Graham - 1991


I had the pleasure to see Kat perform back in 2010 when she was promoting "Put Your Graffiti On Me" at Nashville Pride and from that point going forward, I've loved and supported everything she's done musically and theatrically.  I fell in love with Bonnie Bennett and wanted more and more of her each week on The Vampire Diaries but it really wasn't until she released "Power" that I knew she had the potential to be a megastar.  She has a voice that's built to inspire you to great heights and she's got charisma that draws you in so close that you feel like you're talking to an old friend.  Her smile lights up the room and she's got stage presence for days.

I think that the ladies in TLC would have been amazed to play beside and with Kat if this was the 90s.  I feel like she and Left Eye would have been great friends and they would have collaborated on some amazing music so I think that it's very cool that she sampled, "What About Your Friends" on this track.  It's a powerhouse of a song and the rap in the middle eight really brings that Left Eye influence to the track.  I want this woman to do amazing things and blow up bigger than many of the artists you're hearing on the radio right now.  I mean, come on.... have you listened to her kill it on "Wanna Say"? That is, hands down, one of my favorite songs of all time.

Support this amazing artist and show her love because she's worth all of it.
