LABEL DEBUT 'UNBROKEN' SCHEDULED FOR JANUARY 5, 2010 RELEASE






NEW YORK, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Recording artist and actress Katharine
McPhee is preparing to release her second album - Unbroken - on Verve Records,
home to some of the most renowned vocalists of all time, including Ella
Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and more recently, Diana Krall. 
Bruce Resnikoff, The Verve Music Group's President and CEO, described
Katharine as "one of the most gifted vocalists of her generation." 

The performer's new single, "Had It All" is currently available for purchase
exclusively on iTunes. To celebrate the release of "Had It All," MySpace
Celebrity debuted webisodes from Katharine where fans get a special
behind-the-scenes look at her in the studio. "Had It All" is also available
now to stream on MySpace Music.

Katharine McPhee traveled between Los Angeles, Nashville and Boston to write
and record Unbroken, which was produced by John Alagia (John Mayer, Jason
Mraz). The album's first single, "Had It All," written by David Hodges, Mitch
Allan and Kara DioGuardi, is an upbeat and infectious song reflective of
Katharine's evolving sound. Katharine co-wrote six of the songs on Unbroken
with Rachael Yamagata, Paula Cole, Chris Thompkins and Ingrid Michaelson,
among others. Fans can also get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the
making of Unbroken on MySpace Celebrity. The webisodes follow Katharine
throughout a week in the studio allowing fans to experience the recording
process. Additional videos will roll out through the release of the album in
January.

Katharine's acting credits include an appearance on "CSI: New York," where she
premiered "Say Goodbye," a heartbreaking ballad from Unbroken as well as a
co-starring role in the 2008 hit, "The House Bunny."  As a recording artist,
Katharine found early success with her debut album, Katharine McPhee and her
first single "Over the Rainbow"/"My Destiny" which both debuted at number 2 on
Billboard's 200 and Hot Singles Sales Charts, respectively.
