LaGuardia High School (The Fame School), went on to college to study Music Business at Monmouth University, and since then, the stage has been her classroom and her home. Performing on stage is unlike anything else she has ever experienced in life because it gives her energy, power, and strength; almost like an out of body experience. Natalie has had the opportunity to perform and travel the world with some of the music industry’s greatest talents such as Jazmine Sullivan, Lauryn Hill, Michael Bolton and John Legend, just to name a few. Her music has also taken her all around the world, performing in the US, UK, Australia, Japan, Europe, Africa and more for hundreds of thousands of people.
