Date of Birth : May 14th 1973
Pop singer and member of All Saints. During All Saints’ five years of inactivity, she was a member of Appleton with her younger sister Nicole. Appleton’s father met Melanie Blatt, with whom Nicole had attended the Sylvia Young Theatre School, and heard that Blatt was considering starting a girl group and was looking for new members. Nicole asked whether her sister could join the group as well. In 1996 both sisters joined Blatt and Shaznay Lewis in forming the band All Saints. In 2000, both Natalie and Nicole appeared in the poorly received film Honest.
All Saints split acrimoniously in 2001 amid much foment and rumour. In their five year career, the band scored a total of five #1 singles.
Natalie and Nicole formed a new band Appleton and launched their first single “Fantasy” in September 2002 which features Natalie doing a stage dive. Initially it was to be Nicole doing the stage dive, but she backed out at the last minute, and thus Natalie took her place. The album Everything’s Eventual was released in early 2003 and coincided with the documentary Appleton on Appleton which gave an inside look into the life of the sisters.
