It is with deep sadness and a great sense of loss that we learned of the passing of Ketrina Baird, WKT Australia Executive Director, on December 23, 2020. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Ketrina’s family on behalf of the entire WKT community; she will be deeply missed.
Ketrina was one of the driving forces behind the competitive singing scene throughout Australia. Her love for giving singers a platform to showcase their talent was second only to the love she had for her family. Just 2 weeks ago she sent me a long text mapping out what she wanted to accomplish for 2021. That was Ketrina. She was a fighter. She never quit. I am incredibly proud of my association with her.
I know that the WKT community will be joined by countless others around the world in mourning the loss of this truly accomplished and beloved woman. She will remain long in our hearts.
