Good evening. Natalie Mitchell is a 24-year-old young mother from Brixton, London, supported by Kids Company (the charity Saturday’s Under 1 Roof show raised funds for).
Natalie has overcome some severe challenges in her life to go on to produce some extraordinary songs. Her Debut single Love Is All It Takes was inspired by her journey to survive, her life as a teenage mother and the support given to her by Kids Company. The song is also written to thank Coldplay for organising Under 1 Roof.
Camila Batmanghelidjh, the founder of the charity said, "Music plays such an important part in the lives of young people Kids Company supports, whether using it as a form of therapy, helping them to re-engage with education, or to initialise structure that has been absent from their everyday lives. By giving young people opportunities we discover so many talents that would otherwise go unnoticed."
When talking about the single Natalie said, "I can’t believe I have been able to follow my dream and make this song. David who helped create the track, I can’t ever thank him enough. I’ve have also wanted to thank Kids Company for so long and this has been the best way I could ever do it. Kids Company has actually saved my life, it mended my heart. I don’t know where I’d be without them. As a mother my children mean the world, and now thanks to Kids Company we have a chance at a better life."
Love Is All It Takes is released on 20th December 2011 and will be available from iTunes.
