Katelyn Rose is the winner of the first season of YOBI.tv and Myspace’s “Take the Stage” contest and the
newest protégé of world-renowned music manager Johnny Wright. She will soon begin a life-changing
journey as she enters music industry boot camp at Wright’s Florida compound and moves closer to realizing
her dreams of being the world’s next pop sensation.
Katelyn grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of West Chester, Pennsylvania, where her music career
began at the age of 11. An insightful choir teacher noticed her talent during her sixth grade fall concert
performance of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On,” and suggested that her parents put her into vocal and
piano lessons. Katelyn was bitten by the entertainment bug, and she has never looked back.
Throughout high school and while attending college at West Chester University, Katelyn continued to
perform and create music, placing in the top five singers in the 2008 International Model and Talent
Association conference, representing the United States in the 2010/2011 Avon Voices International Talent
Search and receiving radio play for her original song “Skills.”
Upon winning the “Take the Stage” competition, Katelyn said, “I am so thankful and blessed to have had this
opportunity, and it has changed my life. I could not be happier, and I am so excited and determined to work
hard and continue this dream.”
