With a firm upbringing in her grandfather’s church, it was then that she fell in love with the message of hope.
During her tenure at the University of Texas at Austin, it became evident that she carried a unique voice, one that was respected and of high demand, that eventually the requests for her to feature and sing at numerous events and music projects made it evident she had a call to sing.
While she earnestly sought God for direction concerning her personal musical aspirations, she united with local ministries and traveled to various cities and states, harmonising and gaining great exposure and valuable experience.
As time passed and God revealed deeper aspects of her destiny, it was evident that He was calling her into her own ministry. The journey officially began at her debut concert on February 15, 2009, before an eager audience of hundreds. She mounted the stage and exhausted her physical limitations as she revealed her heart for God through a one-hour set of her original compositions. Her debut Album entitled, “Long Live the King,” was recorded live and proved a life-altering experience for many in attendance and was released in 2013.
Natori has since continued to travel and spread the good news. From worship leading at local venues to stages in Johannesburg, South Africa, and launched her into the next phase of her career with her latest single “Spirit Moves”.
Spirit Moves, is a simple but powerful message that has brought in numerous testimonies from listeners around the world. In this power-packed tune, Natori acknowledges the musical traditions of her southern baptist upbringing and musical influences, while weaving them through contemporary pop and soul vibes. The unique experience of “Spirit Moves” quickly created a buzz and a demand for a music video. – And in July of 2020, Natori delivered: four uninterrupted minutes of tranquil intensity…moving visuals that perfectly convey every lyric.
In 2021, Natori released her ballad ‘Oh Heaven’ which features an organ-ic sound with a fairly tale feel, pulling heart strings with memories of loved ones and heaven. Watch here
