During her fifth attempt auditioning for NBC’s The Voice, Kata Hay caught the attention of three out of the four judges after giving an unforgettable performance of “Redneck Woman”. It takes a developed sense of resilience to continue trying in the face of multiple “no’s”, and in doing so, Kata undoubtedly proved she was a force to be reckoned with.
From the moment she took the stage, Kata quickly became one of the beloved favorites of Season 10, not just for her unmistakeable talent and magnetic personality, but also for her remarkable ability to simply be herself. It’s one thing to be comfortable in your own skin, and another thing altogether to hold onto the essence of who you are on national television.
Kata’s determination reminds us that it’s often the hardest and darkest right before the dawn of our dreams, so it’s crucial to protect the fire inside of us that keeps us moving forward. We hope you’ll join us to hear how Kata’s story shows us that:
- When we play the chameleon and blend in with our surroundings, we’re actually doing a disservice to the world, because our uniqueness inspires others to value their uniqueness as well
- If we’re too busy trying to be somebody else, we’ll never become the best version of ourselves
- What we fear the most is often what we need to do to keep moving forward
- Working through your fears shows you that you’re capable of more than you’ve imagined
