Kate Castro
Kate Castro
Singer/Songwriter from Spokane, Washington, is in the midst of an exciting musical career. She started singing at the age of 5 and at age 15 began performing at ceremonial functions and city sporting events. She was a member of choirs and woman’s quartets in high school and college and was known as the wedding singer for years in Spokane and Seattle. Kate moved to La La Land from Seattle in 2008 to pursue her love of music after taking a detour in the business world.

Kate’s ability to trust life’s routes came from her deep level of spirituality. If she envisioned conquering a task, goal, or dream, she knew it could manifest. In 2012, Castro sang the National Anthem at a WNBA LA Sparks game, US boxing championship in Hollywood and many other arenas of corporate America. Meeting a music producer who saw talent in her brought about her first single, “You Make my Heart Sing” in 2013. In 2015 Kate released another single, “I Wanna Feel”. With the help and unwavering support from her producer and co-writer Shakim Williams, producer of AKON, her next song “In Love” was the first of hers to be played on the radio in five states in 2017-2018. Urban and Urban AC stations, WIIZ-FM, WKZJ-FM, WFXE-FM, WRSV-FM, and WLXV-FM.
That year was followed by a new song and music video for “Gotta Have It”. Success of this single was garnered on many platforms; Spotify, iTunes, and social media sites.
With an immense drive to continue sharing her voice with the world, Kate’s singles and album release in 2019 has been a work of love and devotion. Castro believes giving to others breeds joy. She is dedicated to LOVE and from this, Kate knows more beautiful music will be made.
