NEW YORK, NY (Epic Records) - Epic recording artist Natasha Bedingfield
marked another milestone in her already remarkable career today by grabbing her very first Grammy nomination. "Unwritten," the infectiously funky hit single from her debut album, Unwritten garnered the British songstress a nomination for "Best Pop Female Vocal Performance" as nominees for the 49th Annual Grammy Awards were announced at the Music
Box at Fonda Theater in Hollywood.
The nomination affirms what has truly been an amazing year for the International superstar whose debut album Unwritten surpassed triple platinum status in the UK and has spawned multiple smashes around the globe. And now, the gorgeous and multi-talented singer/songwriter has added the U.S. to her list of conquered lands. When Natasha made her impressive U.S. debut with the infectious "These Words," the song ascended into the top ten on the mainstream top 40 airplay chart followed by the soaring and inspirational "Unwritten" which quickly skyrocketed to No 1 and became the first No 1 pop single in the U.S. by a British Female Solo artist in 19 years.
Spotlighted as one of the biggest breakout females of 2006, critical acclaim mounted and Natasha appeared everywhere from MTV's TRL and VH1, to Good Morning America, and the Tonight Show with Jay Leno just to name a few. But this is just the beginning.
Natasha recently released her long-awaited live DVD - LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY - which captured the artist's first sold-out concert in the U.S. filmed on June 8th in the heart of Times Square at The Nokia Theatre. Look for Natasha to release her highly anticipated sophomore album early 2007.
