Katrina comes from a musical family and learned to sing before she spoke. In sixth grade, she was accepted into the Durham School of the Arts and participated in both the regional and national honors choirs. After high school, Katrina got into New York University and studied musical theater and vocal performance until her junior year. At that time, she went to an open call for "Hairspray" on Broadway. At only 20 years old, Katrina was hired as the stand-in for the lead role, Tracy Turnblad. Due to weight restrictions for the role, she decided to leave after a year and a half. She played Tracy a few more times in regional shows, before returning to New York. After "Hairspray" ended, she got serious about losing weight, but did it in an unhealthy way by working out too much with little food. Needing to make a life choice, she became a kickboxing instructor and has never felt better about her body. The Voice is the perfect platform to start her music career again without judgment.
