On a bus in Uganda in the Western Region. So many new things to see! I feel that as an artist you need to refill your cup. For me, creativity is restored by getting out of my comfort zone, challenging myself, having new experiences, talking to new people and being out in nature. I am really enjoying my new environment and the experiences I am so fortunate to have!

I wrote the beginning of this song after taking Swim class at DeAnza College. There was an elderly lady registered in my class and one day after class I saw her sitting on the bench in the ladies change room trying to comb her hair and struggling. For a moment she stopped and just stared into space. I actually ended up giving her some spray to help her comb her hair out and we had a nice chat. I went home after classes that day and penned a few words down which later on became the seedlings for this song...

I have been spending a lot of time on YouTube and Facebook lately as I prepare and study for my next journey. I notice how brutal the comment sections can be. Wow! The way people 'converse' online seems to degrade more and more with each passing year.
Why is this?
Why do people love to judge, tear down and rip apart?
If you don't like someone or something, just close the page and find something you feel good about.
Life is too short for so much anger and hate.
Support what you love. ❤❤
Do not spend one second of your energy on destruction.

I just heard that singer (The Voice) Christina Grimmie was shot and killed during an autograph signing after her own show. Rest is Peace to this beautiful, talented girl. There really are no words.

As artists we put ourselves out there on Social Media and are so vulnerable to the world. In private we deal with obsessed fans, stalkers, people who think the relationship is 'deeper' than it really is and get attached in an unhealthy way to you and do and say all kinds of crazy things.

We have to step back and examine our connections with people using social media and media in general. There are a lot of imbalanced people out there and while we acknowledge the struggles they endure we have to safeguard ourselves from stuff like this. What happened here is an extreme example but on a lesser level scenarios like this play out every day.

Artists, protect yourselves and try to set boundaries as much as you can. This really goes for anyone using social and other forms of media. You know what your intentions are but often people live in their own heads and they may have a completely different intention/story playing in their own mind.
This whole situation is truly heartbreaking.

This breaks my heart! She was such a talented artist! Her rendition of Elton John's "Your Song" was almost better than the original.

Finally got my hair cut!!
Went for a bob and got my bangs back! This should hopefully be a no muss, no fuss haircut that will hold up in humidity. I can still rock my clipins to get my fun colors and length if I want to.
Loved how Mirjana over at Mira Salon at Kabira Country Club really took time with my fine hair. Getting my bangs cut so they fall right is no easy task. Thanks Mirjana and your awesome team! ✂✂✂👑👑👑 #mirjana #mirasalon #haircut #finehair #redhairdontcare #bob #short #selfie #instagood #instahair #kabira #countryclub #kampala #uganda #africa

Starting a new life means studying limiting beliefs and events from the past. When you can move past the past you can clarify what you want to manifest in your future.
I am undergoing a complete deconstruction of my life in order to study and learn how to move forward in a more constructive and fruitful way.
Have you ever taken time to break your life down, sort through the pieces and build yourself a new and better you?

What are your biggest life questions or fears?

My loves...
I need your input:
What are your biggest questions about your life when you sit and your inner voice (or voices) speaks to you?
Also, What things are you most afraid of in life?
Are you scared to fail? Scared to start? Afraid you won't find a soulmate?
What do you think about when it is quiet and you are alone with your thoughts?

Let's pretend I decided to stop making music.
What other profession do you think I might be good at?

Story
Tagline
Soulful Pop Music Artist Natalie Brown
Introduction
Whistling, hand claps, funk-strumming guitar, and a boppin' bass line lay the sonic stage for Natalie Brown's luminous vocals on "Wish Upon a Star", the first track of the self-released EP "This Christmas". The up-tempo jazz-inspired "Spirit of Christmas Time" follows, marrying old-school with new-school before taking the listener back to Natalie's Pop/R&B roots with the mid-tempo track "Favorite Time of Year". The EP then settles into the mellow zone with the beautifully-rendered ballads "Save the Last Dance" and "This Christmas" - the latter being the title track of the EP and a tribute to Natalie's mother who lost a valiant battle with cancer in 2013.

Fans of Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith and Morgan James will definitely find something to enjoy on this Holiday release. With musical influences ranging from Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin, to Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight, Natalie Brown's music is described as uplifting and inspiring and fuses R&B/Pop with Adult Contemporary and a touch of 'soul'. "When the music began to play and her voice began to sing, I knew that I had to meet her, feel her energy and hear her voice in person. Natalie is alluring and sensual, warm and healing" says Grammy Award-winning R&B and soul singer-songwriter Chrisette Michele.

The "This Christmas" EP was recorded at Natalie Brown's Studio 302 in Ottawa, Ontario Canada beginning in 2013 and released on November 18th 2014 worldwide via iTunes, Amazon, and a host of other digital stores. With this latest release, Natalie is self-sufficient and (co-) runs her own independent record label, publishing company and recording studio.

Born in Canada, Natalie Brown‘s passion for music was nurtured from a young age by her involvement in theater, gospel music, creative writing and local session work as a vocalist and writer. Upon deciding to pursue a professional music career, she moved to California and was selected to sing with internationally acclaimed Gospel recording artist Ron Kenoly during his “Welcome Home” tour in 1996. She toured around the USA and after returning to California, Natalie studied with world-renowned vocal instructors Seth Riggs (Stevie Wonder, Prince, Barbra Streisand) and Dave Stroud (Frank Ocean, Demi Lovato, Natasha Bedingfield).

Natalie’s debut album “Let The Candle Burn” was released in late 2000 and contained thirteen original songs. Created with a thoughtful range of subject matter, tempo and mood throughout the album, it was enthusiastically welcomed by fans and industry personnel alike. She painted an interesting tapestry of sound on an album that included carefree, upbeat tracks, mid-tempo chill out songs and sweet soulful ballads.

Natalie returned to the studio to record the 2003 Holiday album entitled “A Cool Christmas“, a 10 song Cool R&B/Pop influenced collection of Holiday favorites. After a limited edition run, the album was discontinued and is now a collector’s item.

In the Spring of 2004 the digital singles ‘I Wonder‘ and ‘Queen of Me‘ were made available on Natalie’s official site. The songs garnered tremendous attention and In July 2004, ‘Queen of Me’ was released by Avex, Inc. Japan on the “Soul Essentials 7″ series with songs by Rahsaan Patterson, Earth, Wind & Fire and others.

Much to the delight of fans eagerly awaiting new material, January 2009 saw the release of the long awaited sophomore album “Random Thoughts“. The album features a selection of songs with varying themes (Natalie’s Random Thoughts) that range from the inspiring “Hold Your Head Up High”, the girl power anthem “Queen of Me” and the uplifting “It’s A Beautiful Day”, to the thought provoking “What’s Going on Next Door?”, the unity rallying call of “Come Closer”, the sultry “How I Love 2 Love U”, the soulful “You’re Mysterious” and signature love ballad “I Knew You Were The One” and more.

Starting in 2010 Natalie shared via her nVlogs Video Blog series the making of her 4rd full length album project entitled “The Relationship Odyssey“. The album was released on January 17, 2012 with the partial support of fans via a crowdfunding effort using the Indiegogo platform. Songs from all 3 original projects have been used extensively in Film and TV Productions world-wide.

With a substantial body of recorded work behind her, Natalie is working on a new full-length album due in 2015 and is set to hit the road on tour.
