Catherine Ochoa, or mononymously known as Cáthia is a Salvadoran American singer[when?] from Bronx, New York.

She rose to fame when she came in 13-16th place on the fourth season of the American version of reality television singing competition The Voice.[1]

Cáthia released her first single "Without You" produced by "Dante Lattanzi" of Caelum Music Production 47 days after her elimination on The Voice on June 24, 2013. Cáthia was the second Salvadoran American to participate on The Voice, after Adriana Louise who was on season three. Cáthia later participated in a reality television singing competition called "Yo Soy El Artista" (I Am The Artist) on Telemundo, where Cathia achieved a fourth-place finish, becoming the second Salvadoran American ever to advance to the final stages of a Telemundo singing competition production after Allison Iraheta.

Early life (before The Voice)[edit]

Cáthia was born in The Bronx in New York City to parents who immigrated from El Salvador. She attended high school at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, in New York City's Manhattan borough, where she learned opera.[2] She competed[when?] in an Apollo Theater Amateur Night, advancing to the semi-finals. Cáthia's mother created her own business, which fueled Cáthia's interest in singing.

Thanks to her prominence on Season Four of NBC’s hit television series “The Voice,” as well as Telemundo’s “Yo Soy El Artista,” Cáthia is already well known to millions of viewers. Described by her coach Shakira as a “phenomenon” while on the show, now with her latest EP - “Volar,” Cáthia is building on this momentum as she confirms the praise earned from her industry coaches.

She has chosen to debut as an independent artist, and has been involved in the process every step of the way, working alongside widely acclaimed producer JEAN on her latest music. Cáthia loves the recording studio as well as the creative process, and is currently pursuing a degree in Music Business at Baruch College in New York City. Studying the industry while also being a performer has allowed Cáthia to understand the mechanisms at work in the music marketplace.

The Voice[edit]

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;[3] then with Michelle Chamuel, Josiah Hawley and VEDO.[4]
