Natasha Bedingfield: Childhood
Natasha Bedingfield was born and raised in Lewisham, near London. Her New Zealand born parents, John and Molly are both charity workers. She has two brothers, Daniel and Joshua and a sister Nikola. Daniel and Nikola are also both musicians and pop singers.
As a teenager, Daniel, Nikola and Natasha formed the electronic dance group the DNA Algorithm. Natasha sang for the group. The themes of their songs dealt primarily with religion and empowerment, something that she carried on into her solo work.
After a year at the University of Greenwich, studying Psychology, Natasha abandoned her studies to concentrate on her singing and songwriting. She also wrote and recorded a number of original compositions for the Hillsong London Church.
Natasha Bedingfield: Musical Career
In 2003, Natasha Bedingfield signed a contract with Sony BMG. Unwritten, her debut album, was released in 2004. The album features a number of collaborations, with the likes of Guy Chambers, Steve Kipner and the rapper Bizarre. Unwritten debuted at number one in the UK charts and was a top 30 hit in the US.
The debut single from the album was 'Single', which was a number three hit in the UK. 'These Words', the second single, became Natasha's first number one single. It was also a top 20 hit in the US. 'These Words' was followed by the release of the album's title track. It became the most played song on US radio in 2006 and reached number six in the UK.
At the end of 2006, Natasha released the Live in New York City DVD, which contained a documentary and her music videos, as well as the live performance.
Natasha Bedingfield's second album, N.B. was released in 2007. The album featured collaborations with Adam Levine (of Maroon 5) and Eve, as well as the reappearance of Steve Kipner. The lead single, 'I Wanna have Your Babies' was a number seven hit in the UK but only saw moderate success in other territories. The second and third singles were 'Soulmate' and 'Say It Again'. In America, the lead single was 'Love Like This', featuring Jamaican reggae artist Sean Kingston. The track did not feature on the original pressing of the album.
Natasha supported Justin Timberlake during his FutureSex/LoveShow tour in May 2007 and also performed 'Unwritten' at the Concert for Diana at London's Wembley Stadium. However, in January 2008, an impending promotional tour was cancelled for the second time, to allow Natasha more time in the United States, promoting her album.
