Angela Hudson is Katy Perry’s oldest sibling. She was born in 1982 and is now 40 years old. The two are close and are the founders of the charity organization Fireworkfoundation, whose goal is to empower kids in underserved communities.
While growing up, Katy went through a phase during which she was copycatting everything Angela was doing. During this period, she often stole the cassettes Angela was practicing with, went to her room, and practiced with them herself.
She would then go to their parents and perform in front of them. Thanks to these shows, Katy’s parents decided to send her younger daughter to singing classes.
On May 5, 2012, Angela married a man called Svend Lerche. She got pregnant the following year in October. Her first baby was a beautiful baby girl who came into the world on February 26, 2014. Three years later, Angela gave birth to her second baby.
