TESTIMONIALS

When I first heard about the camp back in  2016, I was ecstatic. To me it’s an amazing setting, there are camps for sports and other music groups, but the setting and the group of kids at Kat’s  camp is different. You’re all there to do the same thing - to be who you are as a musician. I’ve been going to the camp since Kat has started it, and it’s made a huge impact on my life not just in music but in the way I think about things. I’ve learned a lot about the music industry, and stage performance. This camp is a blessing to me and all her campers. I’m glad I have the privilege of being a camper at the Badlands Rising Star Camp.

Electro-Voice is honored to be a sponsor of the Rising Star Foundation!  It is truly incredible to work with Kat and witness her passion and dedication to helping the next generation of aspiring musicians realize their dreams!  We are truly grateful for the chance to work with this amazing foundation and can’t wait to see what the future holds for the talented kids who attend the camp!

MICHAEL DOUCOT, ELECTRO-VOICE

Kat’s camp is a wonderful place to watch your children grow as singers and as people. Watching my daughter grow as a person is astounding. Her confidence on the stage has grown exponentially while the short time she was at Kat’s camp. I can’t wait to see what Kat does this summer with the kids, and neither can Caley!
