Katie Ohh is the small town girl with the power-house voice who is also the new million dollar winner of the 2013 NBC TV show “The Winner Is”.
From Powhatan Point, OH, across the river from Wheeling, WV, Katie Oh established herself as a teen with performances in clubs, at fairs and festivals (including the famous “Jamboree in the Hills” festival) as well as successive appearances on the legendary Wheeling Jamboree broadcast on WWVA – the second longest running radio show in the history of American radio.
While working on her music career locally she finished a nursing degree at the age of 19. Nashville would have seemed the obvious next move but while visiting friends in CA she decided to move to Los Angeles.
While finishing up her debut, self titled EP, a Los Angeles NBC producer saw a Katie Ohh performance on YouTube and asked her to come in for an audition for a new talent competition TV show called “The Winner Is”.
Katie had already decided to move to Nashville and at 22 years old had a job offer at a Nashville hospital where she could work while continuing to follow her dream in music. However, she stayed in Los Angeles long enough to audition and won a spot on the show.
The show would not be actually taping until a later date so Katie went ahead and moved to Nashville, got settled and then flew back to Los Angeles to tape the show.
