CAIRO – 23 October 2019: Famed American star Katy Perry is currently in Egypt, where she visited a number of Egyptian tourist attractions such as Siwa Oasis, White Dessert among others.

In the photo Perry appeared wearing ‘’Galabya’’ which is the Egyptian traditional costume along with Egyptian driver from Upper Egypt.

Perry was born in October 25, 1984. She started a career in gospel music as a teenager.

Perry signed with Red Hill Records and released her debut studio album Katy Hudson under her birth name in 2001, which was commercially unsuccessful. She moved to Los Angeles the following year to venture into secular music after Red Hill ceased operations and she subsequently began working with producers Glen Ballard, Dr. Luke, and Max Martin.

After adopting the stage name Katy Perry and being dropped by The Island Def Jam Music Group and Columbia Records, she signed a recording contract with Capitol Records in April 2007.

She briefly studied Italian opera at the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara. Her singing caught the attention of rock artists Steve Thomas and Jennifer Knapp from Nashville, Tennessee, who brought her there to improve her writing skills.

In Nashville, she started recording demos and learned how to write songs and play guitar. Perry signed with Red Hill Records and recorded her debut album, a gospel record titled Katy Hudson, which was released on March 6, 2001.

She also went on tour that year as part of Phil Joel's Strangely Normal Tourand embarked on other performances of her own in the United States.

While Katy Hudson received positive reviews from critics, it was commercially unsuccessful and sold an estimated 200 copies before the label ceased operations in December.

Transitioning from gospel music to secular music, Perry started writing songs with producer Glen Ballard and moved to Los Angeles at age 17. In 2003, she briefly performed as Katheryn Perry to avoid confusion with actress Kate Hudson. She later adopted the stage name Katy Perry, using her mother's maiden name.
