I’M AN AMERICAN

In 2001 Kathy Bee completed her patriotic CD.  From a small child, Kathy Bee has always been patriotic.  This was displayed at the age of two, when she asked her mother to repeatedly sing “The Battle Hymn Of The Republic”.   During her grade-school years, Bee accompanied her classmates on the piano, as they all proudly sang patriotic songs.   She was deeply affected by the Viet Nam War, as she remained patriotic, while her only brother served and was injured in the Army.  Years later, it was only natural for Kathy Bee to write her own patriotic song entitled “I’M AN AMERICAN”.  Since then Bee has been touring, singing, hosting TV shows and stage events.  Audiences of all ages love her music and the way that the music makes them feel...loved & that someone cares!

THE RED HAT MAMMA

Kathy Bee’s stage & concert shows are frequently performed in Southern California. Kathy’s latest CD includes her song “Red Hat Mamma”. This song is a special tribute to the Red Hatters, who are a group of women who really enjoy their senior years.

Kathy Bee is available for bookings. She also is a vital member of the Oldies Music Tribute Show. For more information go to www.OldiesMusicTribute.com or www.kathybee.com
