Katy was still signed to Columbia Records and working on her album, "Fingerprints."

Throughout the year Katy attended various fashion/charity events in the Los Angeles area.

"Simple", "Self Inflicted" & "Wish You The Worst" featured
on race car driver Danica Patrick's website!

P.O.D.'s "Testify" album (produced by Glen Ballard - Columbia/Atlantic Records) was released on January 24. First single, "Goodbye For Now", featured Katy's vocals in the last 25 seconds. Song would later be released on a P.O.D. Greatest Hits in June 2008.

Went to LA's annual Coachella event in April.

Katy started working for "TAXI Records," a talent scout agency. She listened to songs/artists, gave them feedback and decided if they were good enough to pass on to various businesses, such as Atlantic Records, Capitol Records, producers, and TV production companies.
