– Perry performs three songs from her debut album One Of The Boys –

Toronto, ON (December 12, 2008) – In 2008 singer Katy Perry burst onto the music scene with her hit song I Kissed a Girl, off of her debut album – One Of The Boys. Since then Blender Magazine has called her “The Next Big Thing” and Teen People dubbed her “One to Watch.” On Tuesday, December 16 Perry rocks the CANADA AM soundstage when she performs three of her songs live including Hot and Cold, I Kissed a Girl and her newest single Thinking of You.

CHUM FM is giving away exclusive passes to see Perry at CANADA AM. There are two ways to win, by listening to Richie Favalaro between 2-7 pm weekdays or by visiting chumfm.com. The online contest closes on Monday, December 15 at 10 a.m. ET.

Perry, the daughter of two pastors, grew up on a strict diet of church music, until the day that she put on a Queen record and was inspired by their flamboyant lyrics. At 17, Perry met legendary producer and songwriter Glen Ballard, who spent years guiding and developing her career. The strength of the songs and Perry’s big voice captured the attention of Jason Flom, Chairman & CEO of Capitol Music Group, who signed her in Spring 2007.
