Talk about a spirit for the holiday season! You won’t be disappointed with North Dakota native and national sensation, Kat Perkins. Sure, she was a 2014 The Voice finalist, is a successful Twin Cities performer (her band opened for Bon Jovi) and is returning to the Paradise Center for the Arts in Faribault Dec. 30, where she holds the honor of being their largest sell-out ever. But if that’s not enough for you to rush to reserve your tickets for her New Year’s Celebration performance (for audience members of all ages), here’s how she so wonderfully represents the spirit of the holiday season. Twice a year Perkins travels overseas to perform for our troops and throughout the year visits our schools encouraging students to follow their dreams, live a fearless life and make a positive impact on the world. We can never get enough of that. For tickets, call 507/332-7372, go to the Paradise box office or visit paradisecenterforthearts.org.
