Belmont Student Performs at First Lady’s Rally

Belmont junior music business major Katelyn Epperly recently sang at First Lady Michelle Obama’s three-day national tour kick-off event. Held in Des Moines, Iowa the event was to celebrate the second birthday of the “Let’s Move” campaign.

An Iowa native and finalist on American Idol in 2010, Epperly said she has made many connections through events and charity work that lead to recommendations for valuable opportunities to perform, such as for the “Lets Move” campaign.

“I’m always appreciative of opportunities like this and everything that the people at HyVee continue to do for me. It’s opened so many doors for me, and I hope more to come,” Epperly said.
