Bedingfield’s American Dream Amusement

Filed under: Uncategorized — enews @ 1:47 pm

British pop star Natasha Bedingfield is amused at the lengths she went to in order to crack the US music charts – she even played in a contest winner’s backyard.

The singer was the first British female to get to number one in the US charts with Unwritten since Kim Wilde in the 1980s, and she puts her Stateside success down to her willingness to start all over again.

She tells Cosmopolitan magazine, “I knew that in order to make it in America, I had to be willing to start over. You have to take a step down to take a step up and not many singers are prepared to do that.

“It was a humbling experience. I sang anywhere and everywhere.

“Once there was a ‘Bedingfield Barbeque’, where someone won the chance to have me sing at their house. I didn’t really know anything about it until I got to the winner’s house and smelt the sausages cooking. There was no microphone, nothing. I just sang in this family’s back yard.”
