When Kat Perkins was in danger of being eliminated from “The Voice,” fans rallied behind her. Their first tweets, for some, were #SaveKat.


Now the rock singer from Scranton is on a mission: to give back to the fans and help other aspiring musicians pursue their dreams.

“That’s just what I am setting out to do, period,” Perkins said. “It’s just give back, give back, give back. It feels good and I just can’t wait to start that process in Medora.”
