With a recent release of her Chris-tian album, Then Sings My Soul , she is flocking in fans faster than she can keep track. Ainge’s biggest fan? Her dad, Ken. She has always re-ceived amazing support in her mu-sical journey from her family. She has over 157,000 views on a single YouTube video and says, “for all I know it’s my dad watching it over and over.” The album, Then Sings My Soul , produced by Tate Music Group is not typically the normal target for her music. However, with the oppor-tunity to record in Oklahoma, home of Tate Music Group, Ainge couldn’t pass it up, “They (Tate Music Group) give great opportunities to artists… [and] I’m big in the Christian faith, I love Jesus more than anything.” Just [ WEST JORDAN ARTIST HITTING THE MUSIC SCENE AT FULL SPEED ask Ainge about her gallery of tat-toos and you’ll know. “I love talking about my tat-toos,” says Ainge, “if you don’t want to talk about them, don’t get them.” She says her body has become the scrapbook of her life, she documents big changes and things that mean a great deal to her. From the piano on “ her upper arm, her first instrument that made her decide to be a musi-cian, to a large chest piece stating, “fidelity” she chose at the age of 17 when she joined the Christian faith. Ainge comments, “it represents my desire to stay true to Jesus.” We keep wondering what will next be put up on the Katie Ainge wall. ]
