BIRMINGHAM (Dec. 14, 2012) – Katie McGettigan,16, a junior at John Carroll Catholic High School, is pledging a percentage of the proceeds from her Christmas Memories album to benefit Children’s of Alabama.
The debut album features classic Christmas tunes like Winter Wonderland and Do You Hear What I Hear? McGettigan’s upbeat jazz renditions of these and other traditional tunes are both warm and inviting, evoking the spirit of Christmas with each ballad. The album can be purchased for $12 on itunes.

McGettigan will be performing in the lobby of the Benjamin Russell Hospital for Children (1601 5th Ave. S.) on Monday, Dec. 17 at 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
Katie could sing before she could talk, according to her parents. At two years of age, she could sing songs from the first note to the last. Her first public performance, at the age of 8, was as a part of her elementary school’s annual talent show, singing Maybe from the musical Annie. She is a member of her church choir and has been cantering for several years. She is also a member of her high school Honors Choir. In her spare time, she volunteers at Special Equestrians. Her long-range goal in life is to become an Equine Veterinarian.
