MY CULTURAL LIFE: NATALIE ON G
Age ain’t nothing but a number to this 16-year-old breakout actress-chanteuse
MUSICAL IDENTITY I’d describe my sound as pop with some R&B soul mixed in.
DEBUT TRACK I got to cut and release my first song “Get Gold” for SHINE Festival 2017. While it still has all the pop and R&B feels l love, it definitely has a heavier electronic style. FIRST PERFORMANCE My first-ever public performance was in front of my primary six class. I was so nervous singing Corinne Bailey Rae’s “Put Your Records On”, I had to do it facing the wall. FIRST CONCERT It was actually just recently: Dionne Warwick. FIRST CD Growing up, I used to listen to Michael Jackson albums on repeat. BIG BREAK Getting as far as I got on TheXFactor
Australia in 2016 was a big break for me—coming out of the show, I have received countless opportunities that I am so thankful for. TALENT
DEVELOPMENT I’ve been going to singing lessons for the last two years, and attend a music school weekly as well. Having just wrapped ArmyDaze2, I’ve also received lots of training having to act and sing live onstage for 20 shows.
FASHION FAVOURITES I’m still experimenting and trying out new trends, so it’s hard to say. Right now, however, I’m really into eye-catching dresses for the stage, or a high-waisted jeans and crop top combo for off-stage. STYLE ICONS Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. ON
REPEAT Zara Larsson and Bruno Mars. MEAL WITH ANY MUSICIAN The legend, Whitney Houston.
