Natalia Johnson was destined to have a life in music, as her mother plays piano, her father sings, and all of her relatives are members of musical ministries. This Texas beauty began piano lessons at 8 years old, sang with her church choir, and listened to blues, gospel, country and R&B growing up. Natalia had her first acting role before she was in kindergarten, but her family didn’t take her seriously as a singer. One day she surprised her father by singing at home. He was so impressed; he spent all night helping her with pitch, harmonies, and proper breathing technique.
That turning point for Natalia developed into the beginning of a career singing with girl groups. At thirteen years old, she found herself in a recording studio and touring around Texas singing in clubs. The group, called Begét, were close friends who opened for rappers Big Moe and Mystikal. This teen queen performing group covered R&B, Rock, Alternative and Hip-Hop. Their big break was guest appearing onstage to accompany the legendary Temptations in singing “My Girl” on their US Tour. From that group to one called Embrace, Natalia stretched her repertoire of styles to include Jazz, Soul and Gospel. As practical as she is intelligent, she also took time out to become a graduate of Prairie View A&M University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. No ordinary artist, Natalia put energy into playing basketball, joining the musical productions in school, and becoming a cheerleader.
Natalia’s solo career began with a record called “Back on Elm Street” backed by the Harold Johnson Sextet in 2008 and she has since released “Ain’t He Alright” – a contemporary gospel project and a neosoul album called “Flavorlicious”. How does a girl with so many different styles in her arsenal of music choose a direction for her formidable talent? According to JQ Records’ President Harold Johnson Sr., “Natalia is so versatile, she can sing any genre of music; but her most compelling style is Soul”.
Natalia credits her soulful delivery to a youth spent listening to Aretha Franklin. See and hear more of Natalia @ http://www.NataliaJohnson.com.
