13-year-old celebrates CD release


CLARENCE, NY - It was a positive and encouraging night in Clarence Friday as 13-year-old local pop singer Katie Flemming celebrated with family and friends the release of her first CD on iTunes.

Katie's dream of becoming a recording artist began at age four when she sang her first solo at her preschool graduation.

While she still performs the national anthem for thousands here at home and around the country, the release of her new CD is a dream come true. She doesn't know what the future will hold, but is enjoying every moment.

"I don't know," Katie told us. "It's a rollercoaster that goes up, and I can't wait to record more songs."

Last year, Katie was chosen as one of the Channel Two's "Great Kids in WNY."
