I’m a musical artist. I sing, act, and dance… preferably ballroom dance. However, my friends would just call me a wedding singer and ballroom dancer. Behind the scenes I write and record original children's music, nursery rhymes, and voice overs for people all over the world. Yep, I Coach too…music, voice, dance, acting, pageantry…etc, and for therapy I put Bible verses to music, study cinematography & swim. (I like “Pure Barre” and “Pound” too!)
I sign my paintings and photography/videography, "Just Natalie." If people forget my last name "Foreverland," sometimes they call me "Natalie Christmas" because I'm always writing Christmas Music along with my Children's music; or “Natalie Heaven,” because Foreverland is like Heaven, or so I assume. When My mom scolds me on the phone, she still says, "Natalie Nicole!" (Nicole is my middle name) My best friend Kim calls me "Natty." Call me what you like. If I recognize it, I'll answer... but be kind. I'm STILL a child at heart. Can't you tell?
Anyways, here is the THE STORY BEHIND THE GIRL... called "Natalie Foreverland."
I was only 5. They had a contest at my church. The child who memorized the most Bible verses got the big prize. It was a gorgeous PINK leather Bible. Honestly, I just wanted it because it was pink, not because it was a Bible...and of course because I HAD TO WIN.
My competitive nature kicked in full force. Every night before I went to bed, my mom would go over all of the verses I had to memorize so I could say them perfectly for my teacher come Sunday morning. However, this night was different, there was a particular verse I was learning that somehow moved my spirit-soul little being. It was called John 3:16. I quoted it perfectly for my mom that night as I had worked on it all week.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." My mom explained to me that Jesus died on the cross for me to take away my sins and asked me if I wanted to ask Him into my heart. I still remember the tug I felt in my stomach as my eyes welled with tears. Even to this day it is so very real. At that moment I asked Jesus to come into my heart, and I immediately felt a beautiful peace...a "washing away of gunk" as I like to call it. Throughout my childhood, I continued to seek the Lord...but then out of nowhere my Senior Year turned into college and I started falling away from the heart that had always been so very true to me...I worked a radio station in town and although I sang, I still had not found my true voice or started writing songs.
After college, I moved to Jacksonville FL and man did I start "dancin' a jig." Florida was a whole new world to this little naive South Carolina chick. Despite Florida's popularity, for me it turned into Neverland...with lots of Pirates, mean captains and crazy mermaids! So I moved to Hollywood Florida (I call it Neverland goin' south), home of the "Hollywood Honky Tonk Tours." I made fabulous friends from Kentucky. "Ed and Lanie, I'm talking about you," and I would sing at their dinner parties. But alas, Neverland doesn't last forever, and I was sucked into hole with no available outlet. Alice was not in Wonderland and the music within me still had not fully developed.
I found another pink Bible. It was given to me by my highschool best friend, Temple Monroe. For some reason I opened it. It was right there staring me in the face. Hosea 6:1 Come let us return unto the Lord: for He hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and He will bind us up. "Oh no"...I remember thinking...."This cannot be. God is really real." Sleeping Beauty woke up, as did the music inside of her.
I don't really want to talk about the years that followed my "Waking." Unfortunately, I reaped what I sowed and Karma bit me hard. However, my lessons were learned EXTREMELY well. The most important thing is that through pain, many songs, musicals, and stories were born. Some were songs and stories that I will never release. They were just for me and God. He understands.
You see, I want to release music full of light. It's so easy to share the darkness and the hard times, and I do share that with close friends. However, I feel it my destiny to chase away darkness by filling it with light. I want the earth to be a better place and much less harsh. So I created a Foreverland full of beautiful music. It's a heaven inside my head, heart, soul, and spirit that I want to share. It is my escape into a world of wonderment, purity, innocence, and HAPPY. I think it is the perfect place for infants, toddlers, children and kids of all ages. There is always sunshine, tulips, daffodils, palm trees, mountains and oceans.....all in one. It's perfect in every way just like Mary Poppins, especially if you need to get away.
So whether you are a baby still in the womb, an infant, toddler, child, or just a kid at heart, my music is for you and I hope it brings you the sound and feel of love, peace and joy. May all spaces within your heart and home be filled with His holy light and heaven's music.
PS: You may wonder what's around the corner. Well, first I have to finish a "Song of Solomon," Ballet I've been working on (the music). However, for my next project, since I've been doing ballroom dance for mmmm, 10 years now, I have a real desire to bring back the classics... Billie Holiday, Irving Berlin, Frank Sinatra, Etta James... you name it. I love 40's music. It's so amazingly romantic. I'll let you know when it's gonna happen, but I really want to release a ballroom dance album, with some shag music too. Oh my... it's so against the rules of ballroom to add shag. Oh but variety makes it even more exciting. After all I must be true to my sweet South Carolina. I'm signing out. Love ya bunches. Esta la vista!
Until next time, or once upon a time, I'll be seeing you...
His Evening Star,
Natalie Foreverland's Music
When people ask me what I do, I can't ever find the right answer. My local friends know me best as a Wedding Singer and Ballroom Dancer. However, maybe "Musical Artist" suits me best as I write Musicals….the music and the scripts and then I record & produce the songs. However, I'm also a Freelance Artist as I do Voice Overs, Painting, Videography and Photography and I Coach Acting, Music, Art and Dance. Oh and I have three hidden loves....Swimming, Painting and Ballroom dance. I paint on my back porch in the moonlight every chance I get and I dance Salsa, Tango, Swing, Foxtrot and Waltz 5 nights a week. It's fabulous cardio. So how do you say all that in a two word title. Hence, titles never tell a full story, they just label people. Know this, "I love Stories and I tell them all the time!" Oh yeah that's right, I'm a storyteller too...Lol. I left that one off the list.
As for the genre of music I write, well I can't put that in a box either. I write and perform a little bit of everything: children's music, wedding music, ballroom dance music, country, pop, folk, blues... you name it. As for the covers I perform at weddings/parties, some of my favorite artists are from the 40's like Irving Berlin, Billie Holiday, Etta James, Frank Sinatra.... and classics like Elvis and Patsy Cline. Oh I love top 40 too....Bruno, Adele, Owl City, Regina Spektor, Alica Key, Maroon 5, etc. in other words I like the NEW and the OLD....top 40 and the 40's....and as for the stuff in between....well it's just...ok. LoL.
As far as creating music, I love to create music for the whole family, including infants, babies, toddlers & kids of all ages, using clean wholesome lyrics; fresh hip hop pop rhythms; & soothing music therapy that will calm your child's soul & nourish your mate's heart.
Yep and I love wedding music and ballroom dance music. The sappier it is, the better! Come on! Mushy gushy love dove songs are the best! Ha! There's nothing like a fabulous love song. Now if you can just take these songs and dance with your mate in the living room after the kids are put to sleep... well that's just soooo romantic, and is there anything more beautiful than romance? So dance together, sing together and pray together. There's nothing better that you can give your child, than them seeing mommy and daddy in love. So, show them how to love. My music will help..... I promise. LOL!
However, amidst all the genres of music, I've always felt that some children have gotten left out... specifically, babies still within the womb, newborns, infants and toddlers. So I decided to create children's music, not just for elementary and middle school kids, but for our babies that we still hold in our arms and nurse.
Life is so beautiful and these little ones need soothing melodies and harmonies that are comforting. Babies need to hear heaven's music, so that their souls, hearts and minds can grow strong and be given audible nourishment. After all, heaven is where they came from and it's tough coming into this world. Music therapy made just for your little darling, can ease the stress of it all.
If you're having trouble getting your child to sleep or if you as a mother or father, are having a hard time sleeping, my music is for you. I made it especially for you, so that you can let go, relax and enjoy your sweet precious gift of life.
If it's daytime and you want to twirl in a field of daisies with your darling toddler, well I've got music for that too, and if you don't have a field of daisies, I'll help you imagine one.
If there's ever a time when your precious child is afraid, lets "Trust in Him." It's amazing how "God music" can dry those tears and put a smile on your child's face. After all, God is the expert on musical therapy for "your bugaboo."
If you ever just need a story put to music, audible, gentle, musical theatre music, made just for kids...It's here.
What about when your sweet little one has to go to the doctor or to the dentist? It is comforting for them to hear the soothing therapy of music made just for them, right there in the office. It eases the discomfort of it all. My music is made for every pediatric dental office and pediatrician, so that your child will have a happy and fun experience going to the dentist or the doctor! As soon as they hear those familiar harmonies, they will feel at home.
So let's escape together into a field of dreams, made with music...even if only for a little while. I believe that we can bring heaven to earth just like Jesus did, and more than likely as you're reading this right now, you're holding heaven. So here's to heaven's sounds. Let's enjoy them together!
PS: Should you decide to purchase any or all of my new 3 singles "Tebow316," "Tebow Goin Be Free," and/or "My Beauty," on iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon...the proceeds will go to the Tim Tebow Foundation. Happy Listening!
Until next time, or Once upon a time, I'll be seeing you...
