Katie Thompson was featured on a recent episode of So You Think You Can Dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_2SHgRwZ3c&feature=player_embedded
Katie Thompson is a critically acclaimed recording artist and musical theatre performer, and this song comes from the 2nd installment of Katie’s new monthly songwriting releases. Frustrated with the details of making a 12 song album, and feeling weighed down by the countless songs unheard in her notebooks, she decided to release 2 or more songs a month for the next year.
Her first month was December 09: “I Like Christmas for the Food”, and “Your Side”… songs about family and the food that brings them together. This month features a re-imagined cover of Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth”, and “Slow” her soaring new original. Always bluesy, sarcastic and blatantly honest.
You can get her version of “Heaven is a Place on Earth” right here on CD Baby.
