NBC News, Las Vegas, U.S. BIO Katy Ketchum Carroll Katy Ketchum Carroll began her career on the Canadian television show 'Function of a Minstrel' after winning every piano and voice competition she entered, sponsored by Her Majesty The Queen. When Katy moved back to her birthland, she was awarded the National Endowment For the Arts for an original musical based on the life of American painter Mary Cassatt for which she received many standing ovations at colleges, theatres, and art centres, throughout the United States. Influenced by her grandfather, who had the movie star Roy Rodgers in his band, Katy revisited her folk roots for a national tour which culminated with an electric car ride to her concert on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. While in Vegas her tour was featured on NBC news. Songs from this tour reached as far as India where Mother Teresa heard them and asked for tapes of Katy's music to be played in her healing centers throughout India. For the last couple of years Katy's focus has been on the Dancing In The Waves CD and singing in the public schools where she sings songs from her sister Hazel's CD Big As The World, also available from CD BABY.com. Katy contributed a piano track to Hazel's song 'Dreamcatcher'. Most recently Katy appears on the same album with Tom Waits and Mickey Hart raising funds for a Northern California hospital.
