WORTHINGTON - Kat Perkins, a semifinalist on NBC’s “The Voice,” will perform as the headliner June 10 at the Worthington Windsurfing Regatta & Music Festival.

Perkins, from Scranton, N.D., is a songwriter and singer. She made it to the top five contestants on season six of “The Voice” and released her first single in August 2014. Since then, Perkins has released three albums: “Kat Perkins,” “Fearless” and “A Kat Perkins Christmas.”
Her music is a cross between rock and Top 40, perhaps a perfect fit for this year’s festival.
“We’ve decided to get away from the Unvarnished and go more mainstream,” said Barry Roberts, who has been booking music for the festival. “She has a lot of original music, but she also does a lot of great covers.”
Perkins has sung a wide variety of music, including songs from Journey, Heart and even “Frozen.”
Perkins will perform at the festival on its Friday, which is the day for country and rock music. She may be able to sing different genres, but she is mainly known for her rock style and performance.
“I guess you can say that she’s a female rocker that just has some rocking hype,” said Roberts.
This year, the festival is attempting to showcase various music styles.
“What we did different this year is that we want to hit every (style),” said Roberts, adding that Hitchville and Brat Pack Radio will also be performing during the festival. Saturday’s headliner will be announced in the coming weeks.
With the help of Perkins and other talented artists, Roberts hopes to give Worthington the publicity he believes it deserves.
“Our main focus is to just bring people to Worthington and to see our lake and the windsurfing,” he said.
