Katyrah Love from American Idol Season 20

Katyrah Love is among the artists to announce that they auditioned for American Idol Season 20.

Idol returns to ABC on Sunday, Feb. 27. Here’s more about Katyrah.

* She’s from the Baltimore, Md., area and attended Catonsville High School.

* She has won amateur night at the Apollo Theater in New York on at least three occasions and was one of 10 artists to make the finals of the Super Top Dog competition in 2019. You can check out one of her performances below. She also performed in the theater’s Christmas show that year.

* In an interview with a local TV station leading up to that competition, Katyrah said that she grew up in a musical family and that all the other members of her immediate family sing. On a Vibin’ in Ashley Live podcast, she said she and her siblings sang in church as a group called “Drops of Blessings.”

* She also said she likes to perform a wide range of music, from opera to jazz to gospel. And she credits her participation in the Baltimore open mic scene as encouraging the birth of Katyrah Love.

* Her real named is Katyrah Davenport, and the stage name was pretty much an accident, she admits. When she performed at open mics, fans wanted to follow her on social media. Her Instagram handle at the time was Katastrophe. She clearly needed something better. “I couldn’t just make it Katyrah, so I added underscore love, and that just resonated with me. I put love in every single thing I do,” she told the podcast.
* Katyrah is also a percussionist and a poet. And she auditioned for The Voice in early 2020.

* That same year, she helped curate an online weekly open mic to keep the arts alive during the pandemic.

* And she worked as a peer support facilitator for Springboard Community Services’ youth homelessness project, funded by the mayor’s office in Baltimore.

* She’s a singer-songwriter, but doesn’t appear to have released music yet. She was a featured vocalist on a single called “Everything You See,” released by the 4TR Band last summer.

* Katyrah has more than 20,000 followers and more than 200,000 likes on her TikTok.
