Long before Katy Perry was a global pop star (and a judge on American Idol), she was a young Christian music industry star who went by her given name, Katy Hudson.

The child of traveling ministers, Perry’s (Hudson’s, technically) self-titled album debuted to mostly positive reviews in 2002, and led to appearances on Christian TV channels, like this forgotten performance on TBN back in 2002.

Though stylistically (not to mention lyrically), Perry’s music has evolved a lot, the video shows she’s always been a gifted singer and songwriter.
