At the top of “Rough Day,” the upbeat lead-single from singer/songwriter Katelyn

McCarter’s debut Dreamin’ Out Loud Entertainment album entitled, Beyond

Skin Deep, she explains, “as we go through rough days in life but at the end of

each day, we must seek God and come to him for support and guidance,” and with

simple everyday life issues as: My Clock Is Running Slow/ The Coffee Pot Is

Broke/Can’t Find My Keys, And Now My Head Is Achin’/My Rent Is Overdue/

for inspiration, motivation, self-worth and God’s love. “I find it really important

to be inspiring to the young considering how much pressure they receive from

social media, social networks etc.,” states McCarter. “I always wanted someone

to look up to when I was in my teens so I want to be that image for them”—An

exemplification of her selfless efforts and desires to serve God every day through

her music and in her daily life activities.
