Kat Perkins, the nanny who impressed audiences on "The Voice," has released a new single, inspired by her time on the show and how it influenced her. Despite not winning, Perkins went on to pursue a career in music and has seen success since.
"I jumped back into nannying for a couple months and I just finished my last week." the nanny-turned-singer told Forum News about her time after the show ended.
Perkins is also lining up a national tour, with dates in North Dakota – her home state – Minnesota and others.
"Now is the time to give back … because of all that those people gave to me with their support and their voting and watching," Perkins told the source. "The least that I can do is come back and play for them."
Perkins' will also be performing at the Hope Rocks benefit show, to support the Faith Lodge, a retreat for people coping with serious illnesses or the death of family members. The singer has said that her time on "The Voice" and the resulting musical career have been a "dream come true." She was asked to audition for the show after the judges, including Maroon 5's Adam Levine, saw YouTube videos of her singing.
