Since then, she has been making crowd pleasing appearances at the 2001 Pre-game SuperBowl show, The Hollywood Reporter's Fifth Annual Young Star Awards, Seventeen Magazine's Teen Choice Awards, and Nickelodeon's Slimetime Live (which Kaci co-hosted and performed three times), and performed the National Anthem at ESPN's 2002 Outback Bowl. Kaci will be kicking off 2003 on January 1 by performing the National Anthem at this years Citrus Bowl in Orlando in addition to the half-time show.
Kaci is not only a singer/songwriter but she is also a musician and producer. "I play the guitar - I just bought a 2002 limited edition Takamine - it's my baby. I think playing an instrument is important and is an asset when writing songs. As for producing...I love it and had the privilege to co-produce Beggin Me with Aaron Sain. It was great, I love the entire creative process to making music".
On Tour, Kaci has recently finished her first solo tour across America sponsored by Pepsi, Fuji Film, GGP and Sam Goody. Earlier this year Kaci toured with O-Town in United States, Europe, Ireland, and Germany. She also supported several dates with the BackStreet Boys and performed in several states for Radio Disney.
Kaci has been singing since she was three years old. "I used to beg my dad to take me to this restaurant to sing karaoke". I would sing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Part Of Your World". Then at age eight she joined a local singing group of girls who appeared at various events around the local Tampa/St.Petersburg area. Kaci soon did solo performances, including singing the National Anthem for the Florida Governor, Florida Congressman, and the New York Yankees. She mastered other styles of music, including Jazz, Country, Broadway and Pop and sang such classic songs as Over The Rainbow and Zing Went The Strings Of My Heart.
Her first album combines her many musical influences. Kaci believes she knows why young people are so excited about the teen pop movement. "The people who are listening are teenagers," she says. "They like hearing people their own age, people they can relate to." As for her future ambitions, Kaci wants to do it all. "I want to make records, make movies and be on the cover of magazines," she says. With her drive and talent, she can certainly go Over The Rainbow.
