After introductions are made he hands me a flyer for a tour that Katelyn is doing with Radio Disney which everybody seems really excited about but I'm not sure how relevant it is to the conversation except that Tarver is excited about the opportunity. So growing up in a small town has its good things and its bad. It's kind of like having a big extended family." At 16 years old, she's a sophomore at high school but because of the music career is being home-schooled for the first time. I always thought I'd be a gymnast but I just fell in love with singing and performing. My younger sister and I and my parents, we drove to Chattanooga, Tennessee and I was one of the first to audition. I was thinking there was going to be all these amazing young talented people but when I got there I was thinking, 'Well I might have a shot! And then while we were still out in California it was one of the last auditions and you found out if you made the Top 20.
Good things being that you can go outside and play. You can leave your doors unlocked and that's kind of cool. "It's my first year home-schooled so it's been pretty easy," she shares. I can just get myself done but it's still a lot of work." Katelyn was brought up in a Christian home but decided on doing pop music. My CD is pop music but I'm a Christian and I feel there's a real need for a positive person in the mainstream. I performed in church and festivals - small town festivals and talent shows. So when American Juniors came round and I got to sing in Hollywood all summer on a national television show I knew that's what I wanted to do." It's quite some leap to be the southern girl from small town Georgia to appear on national TV in Hollywood. She recalls, "I was watching American Idol and I always thought it would be so awesome if they had one for younger kids. Which was the big cut because the Top 20 got to be on TV at least once.
But it was an awesome experience and I had a really great time." Sadly, unlike the grown up American Idol, they didn't do a knock out to find a final winner so Katelyn was joint 10th, or is it joint first with 10 other people? I guess in true American fashion, they wouldn't want the delicate self esteem of the performing teenagers to be wrecked by not winning! They didn't want them to get traumatised if they got cut. I was never voted into the group but I was in the Top 10 and got to sing each week.
It was still good." In such a small town, there was obviously much excitement about Tarver's progress. It was cool." It would have been an obvious step for Tarver to go into Christian music after such a high profile exposure on TV. "I think after the show we just had a lot of contacts in the pop world.
"People were so supportive of me," Katelyn remembers. Other finalists in American Idol have recorded Christian music. I really believe that God has opened so many doors for me in the mainstream.
