"I envisioned a powerful voice singing this song" Azlan says. And Natasha fit that profile exactly. Radio Express© USA saw the potential in the song and its ability to reach out to people. They have included the song in their POP, R&B and URBAN compilations and is now been circulated in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia. Natasha hails from Sri Lanka - a small island in the Indian Ocean formerly known as Ceylon.
Of Asian and European descent, she is a perfect example of the ethnic mix that makes up this island home. Starting at a very young age she showed a lot of promise as a young singer being part of the school and church choir as early as when she was 7 years old. She started her professional musical career in 1998 joining a POP band. In the year 2000 she went on her own and she expanded her repertoire to POP, Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B with more emphasis on Jazz.
