Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (born October 25, 1984), known professionally as Katy Perry, is an American singer, songwriter, and television judge. She has been recognized for her influence on the pop sound and style of the 2010s. Originally singing in church during her childhood before later pursuing it as a career, Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her commercially unsuccessful gospel debut studio album Katy Hudson (2001) under her birth name. After Red Hill went bankrupt, she moved to Los Angeles at 17 to venture into secular music, adopting the stage name "Katy Perry" from her mother's maiden name. Perry began working on an album titled Fingerprints with producers such as Glen Ballard, Butch Walker, and Greg Wells while signed to Java Records and later Columbia Records before being dropped. Much of the material from this time later appeared on One Of The Boys after executive Angelica Cob-Baehler helped her sign a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.
