Cáthia released her first single "Without You" produced by Gaetano "Dante" Lattanzi of Caelum Music Production 47 days after her elimination on The Voice on June 24, 2013.
Early life (before The Voice)
Cáthia was born in The Bronx, borough of New York City, New York, to parents who are El Salvadorian natives. She attended high school at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, in New York City's Manhattan borough, where she learned opera. She competed[when?] in an Apollo Theater Amateur Night advancing to the semi-finals. Cáthia's inspiration to make music was from her mother who created her own business which fueled Cáthia's interest of singing.
Cáthia auditioned for The Voice earning a three-chair turn from Shakira, Usher and Blake Shelton. She chose Shakira as her coach. In the battle round, Cáthia lost to Mary Miranda but was stolen by Usher. She advanced through the knockouts beating Ryan Innes. In the Top 16 Cáthia was eliminated. She performed twice in the finale – first with Judith Hill, Sasha Allen and Karina Iglesias; then with Michelle Chamuel, Josiah Hawley and VEDO.
