“Stuart Kewish Hi Katie, I've just recently found your music and I am stunned by your wonderful vocals. Today I just bought all your music on iTunes and Reverbnation. I think my favourite is Born For This and your Counting Stars cover. Story of My Life and Stay are also up there. I follow so many artists and every now and then I find a voice that just blows my mind - and your voice is one of these. I am just in awe of your sound. Would love to know your plans for music this year. Another EP or even an Album maybe. If you don't mind sharing a little of your plans I am hugely interested. Best of luck with living your dreams, but I sense you already are and it's only going to get better and better for such a hugely talented artist. Take care, Stuart.”

“Coming in 1st on Cover Charts is teen sensation KatieBelle Akin with her cover of One Republic's 'Counting Stars'. Katie's mature voice earned her an amazing 23,500+ views on BEAT100 as well as 3rd place in the World Music Video Chart. Katie's sound has been described as 'Nashville Pop' and Katie tells us '" my music style fits somewhere between Country and Pop while my original songs focus on lyrics, upbeat tempos."She writes many of her own songs, saying that her influences come from a large range of musicians, Bob Dylan, Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars to name just a few. Despite her young age Katie has amassed a large fan base and can list many accomplishments; she began singing in school and church like many other young people but gained industry attention after performing in a regional singing competition. She is a featured artist on the Teen Nation Tour, where she tours for over 12 weeks in 2014. She's finishing up production on 6 new originals; Congrats to Katie Belle Akin.”

“Katie, you are completely amazing and made Michelle's week. Thank you for the hard work that goes into putting a solo show together like that. It was so uplifting, which is why I asked you so close to Christmas in the first place. I heard your music and thought you would be perfect for it. Your music has such an optimistic glow to it, which is really hard to find these days and SO NEEDED in the midst of Duck Dynasty controversy. LOL! Seriously, your voice brings everyone back to what's important. You really served the song last night. I always tell my students if you serve the song, then you will capture the heart of everyone. Just let the song speak. Way to go!”
