Before Katy Perry was Katy Perry, she was Katy Hudson.
And we’ve unearthed this decade-old video of the Firework singer when she was just a firecracker, performing a Gospel song called Search Me on a Christian TV station.

In the clip, a 17-year-old Katy — whose parents are both Christian ministers — sports a bob hairdo and strums an acoustic guitar, emanating a sound synonymous with early 2000s rock. Katy’s early music experience began on the spiritual side, as she was inked to Red Hill, a Christian music label, at just 15.
The pop singer would break out to mainstream success in 2008 with her album One of the Boys, which spawned hits like I Kissed A Girl and Hot N Cold.
