Working and touring with Beyonce inspired Kat. 

“When I was younger, I would always pretend to sing in front of the mirror with a brush. Yes, it sounds cliché, but I did. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world and share the stage with Beyonce. Now that I’ve seen the masses chant her songs, my heart yearns even more to follow my childhood dream,” says Kat. 

That is exactly what she is doing. With her musical background and extensive performance experience, she blends talent and drive to create the phenomenon that is Kat Rodriguez.
