Kateřina Kolčavová,(Katie Kei) fulfilled a dream achieved only by a select few girls around the world. A common girl from Brno who, through her extraordinary voice, undisputed talent and incredible diligence, endured tremendous competition, at WCOPA, an international talent event in the USA which gave her the opportunity to record 3 original songs at a recording studio in Los Angeles.
Only a few days ago she returned to the Czech Republic with gained experiences and new contacts from recording and filming in the USA. On the Czech and international music scene a new star emerges now under the artistic name of Katie Kei.
Her talent was noticed at the early age of nine, when she won the audition for Three Musketeers at the Municipal Theater in Brno. She later performed her other roles in the Bickers, Naked Muse, and seven years ago she had her biggest childhood role in the musical Marry Poppins. The play later hosted the Hybernie Theater in Prague, where Katka played alongside Monika Absolon.
In addition to the theater, she began intensively to solo singing, worked on herself and gradually won several local singing competitions - South Bohemian Sparrow, Czech Singing or Slavíci in the school bench.
Her greatest success so far, has been to participate in the World Championships of Performing Arts (WCOPA) in the USA, held annually in Hollywood and hosted in Long Beach, California. She earned five medals, among great competition of several hundred contestants where she advanced among the top five junior singers to the final live show broadcast seen around the world. She also received a nomination for another year, which she used and returned in style in 2016.
