Natalie Hawkins, born in Fremont, CA, was introduced to music at a young age by her mother, a traveling vocalist. During her childhood, Natalie was involved in numerous musical theatre productions throughout the Bay Area including the classics: Beauty and the Beast (Belle), CATS (Grizabella), and RENT (Maureen Johnson).
In 2007, Hawkins began posting YouTube videos under the alias “AvidActress007,” where she acquired an international fan base and the opportunity to perform alongside broadway composer Jason Robert Brown in New York City. Despite her intense love for the dramatic arts, Hawkins remained a clandestine songwriter who always aspired to pursue a career in pop music.
Today, Hawkins is producing an album of original works which is scheduled to be released in early 2012.
