Natascha Wright biography

Natascha Wright aka Natascha Rekelhoff was born on July 18th 1975 in Billinton, a small village in Surinam, South-America. Her Mum is South-America, her father is Dutch. She has one sister called Bianca. She describes herself as temperamentful, sensitive, motivated, ambitious and organised. She is also a very spiritual person. Her favourite artists are Betty Wright, Randy Crawford, Diana Ross and Anita Baker. She also loves Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Janet Jackson for their business sense and sex appeal. Her favourite music are Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz and Pop.

She knew at an early age what she wanted to do in her life. She wanted to be a singer and started to take her talent outside the school walls by participating in talent searches and various competitions. At the age of 12 she won the first prize in such a talent competition. At the age of 17 she sung in Dutch, Belgian and German discos. At the age of 18 Natascha Wright went to the "Academy for light Music" (AVLM) in Hilversum Holland, where she followed an intensive music training to improve her skills.

During one of the talent competitions, there was a famous Dutch producer, Hans van Hemert. He invited Natascha into his studio to sing one of his demo's. The name of the song was Selfcontrol. It was a nice dance song in the style of Kylie Minogue. Recorded at Wisselrood, it was produced by Hans van Hemert, arranged by Paul Natte, released by Polydor Holland. Selfcontrol had a lot of airplay, and the video was played daily on the English music channel, Sky Channel.

In 1993 Haddaway, who was riding high on What Is Love, (the number 1 hit at the time) asked Natascha Wright to contribute her vocal styling, as a support singer during his world tour. Her strong charisma and warm soprano voice gave Haddaway's show the perfect extras for his Live World Tour. For three years they travelled all over the world, appearing on many stages such as Dance Machine in France. "My time singing for Haddaway was one of the greatest in my career" she remembers.

In 1995 Natascha Wright received a Golden record for singing the lead vocals on DJ Bobo's the song Freedom which became a number 1 hit in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Holland and she received a Golden record for singing the lead vocals on Love Is The Price which became a Top 10 hit.

In parallel she followed her "secret hobby" : Barmusic, Easy Listening, Jazz- and Soul together with german Jazz- & Pop-Pianist Joe Völker from annheim. She dreamt of a solo-carrer but the dozens of records company she visited kept on telling her : "Wonderful voice. Super look. Unfortunately we already have the same style of singer here".
