Video footage of Katy Perry as a teenager on first tour released by videographer Jim Standridge

By Gina DiFalco,

Before Katy Perry became a global pop phenomenon, she was just a teenager with a big dream. New footage of a young Perry has now surfaced, showing what she was like before she had legions of fans.

The video, from 2001, was posted by cinematographer and videographer Jim Standridge on Vimeo. He edited the video from an hour and a half to about 13 minutes, showing Perry singing a song from her album Katy Hudson.

Perry was a Christian artist then, singing her song “Last Call.”

"The other day I was cleaning out some old footage in my office and found 90 minutes of raw footage I had totally forgot about,” Standridge wrote.

“Funny how she spent so much time messing with her hair…. In the present day her hair changes color and style in every photo shoot, music video and performance,” he continued. “I think Katy has grown into an amazing entertainer and woman."

Gawker notes this was Perry’s first tour at the age of 17.
