Kati Hendricks was born singing. At age 5 she toured with one of country music’s biggest acts and appeared on TV almost weekly on the Lewis family Gospel Hour In Atlanta, Georgia. She also appeared on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour in New York. At age 7, she recorded her first album and was considered the youngest recording artist in the country and she regularly appeared on the Buddy Starcher show in Charleston WVa.
She’s considered a bit of a prodigy herself playing six different instruments, piano, organ, guitar, ukelele, drums and accordion. As she continued to perform, she realized the gift she had to teach her vocal technique and positioned herself as a critically acclaimed voice and performance coach who has helped nurture, develop and fine tune some of the world’s greatest singers of all ages.
Kati attended Columbia College where she studied psychology and music. She also has an extensive background in private training with renowned vocal coach Dr. Rachel L. Lebon (voice specialist, author, and educator who toured worldwide with Tops in Blue. She is Professor of Classical, Commercial and Jazz Voice and Musical Theatre at North Texas, Belmont College and the University of Miami and author of The Professional Vocalist and The Versatile Vocalist) as well as world-renowned vocal coach Gina Maretta ( a well-known Miami voice coach, Soprano, La Scala, milan and master of the Aureliano Pertile technique, who at the time was also coaching Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Steve Perry, and Jon Secada). Kati was thrilled to be accepted as a part of Gina's vocal studio.

EDUCATIONAL STORIES ABOUT ANTI-BULLYING
Created By Kati Hendricks & Tara Hayes
“Tumbully the Musical is a play for the family, charged by extraordinary music, and energetic performances from its young cast, who wonderfully deliver the goods in every one of the original songs, performing with passion, and substance. Dealing with the difficult subject matter of bullying, Tumbully hits a home run in its efforts to both entertain, while addressing the issue. Great music, fun staging, and about “something,” Tumbully satisfies, and electrifies its audience.” - Steve Feldman.
