Kat Perkins won the hearts of America – as well as Adam Levine – when she auditioned for the sixth season of the popular music competition “The Voice.”

Her gravelly voice is reminiscent of classic rock legends Fleetwood Mac and Heart, but on December 11, she will bring a different sound to the Fargo Theatre.

“I love Christmas. I’m a fanatic. I could probably listen to Christmas music all year long,” Perkins said.

Staying true to her passion for both the holiday and music, Perkins pulled out all the stops for what she calls a “Christmas extravaganza.” She samples from all genres including jazz, blues, pop, rock and musical theater.

The show will feature a full orchestra, and Perkins’ talents on the French horn and tap shoes will be included, among other quirks.

“There’s something for everyone, from kids to grandmas,” the singer said.

Perkins’ Fargo show will feature three new songs not appearing on her Christmas album, as well as Christmas classics. However, in true Perkins fashion, the classics will have a twist.

“It was really important (the show) was original to Kat Perkins,” Perkins said. Among the many songs she will be performing, she will sing a reggae version of “Jingle Bells,” an eclectic “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” and a rock “Santa Baby.”

“I’ve been doing rock and pop, so I felt like stepping outside of my comfort zone,” she said. “Stepping out of my comfort zone made it really fun and fulfilling when the final product finally came out.”

Perkins’ show will also have local talents, particularly from young students in the area.

“After ‘The Voice’ I felt compelled to foster young talent,” she said. “I felt like I had a lot of information after ‘The Voice,’ and wanted to teach kids it’s okay to follow your dreams and challenge yourself.”

Perkins’ down-to-earth nature combined with her out-of-this-world enthusiasm for both local talent and musical genres creates one of the greatest holiday events of the season in Fargo.

“I promise if you come and see this Christmas show, you will be so surprised and you will literally be full of Christmas spirit when you leave the concert,” Perkins enthusiastically concluded.
