Katy Perry sang with San Diego alt-metal band P.O.D.?

Before Katy Perry was KATY PERRY, she was Katy Hudson, a teenage gospel artist.

Commercially unsuccessful and looking for her big break, Perry provided backing vocals for San Diego Christian alt-metal band P.O.D.'s 2006 track, "Goodbye For Now."

Longtime fans of both artists have been aware of this "fun fact" for years, but the video resurfaced Wednesday, creating quite a stir on social media -- including this P.O.D./Perry performance from "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno ."

Soon after this performance, Katy's management convinced her she could make a bigger impact as a pop artist.

Good call.

P.O.D. released a new album, "The Awakening," earlier this year.
