Pre-pop fame, Katy Perry was an acoustic guitar-playing, Christian singer.

In footage recently unearthed by videographer Jim Standridge, the 17-year-old star is seen crying over her parents, talking about repeating ninth grade, and loving the tour life.

According to Standridge, he has over 90 minutes of footage following Katy Perry’s tour, but only 12 have showed up here, cut together into a montage.
