Vickie Natale

Vickie's music combines Soul, Pop and R&B to create an artistic light so bright she could illuminate a pitch-black room. Vickie is a technically skilled singer with a powerhouse voice so it's no wonder she was crowned the CBS's Star Search Grand Champion in 2004. Receiving approval from judges Naomi Judd, Ben Stein, Ahmet Zappa and Mc lyte, she breezed through the competition, which was viewed by over 9 million viewers.

The legendary Nick Ashford has coined her "little Aretha" and said he knew from the first time he heard Vickie on stage she had something special. Valerie Simpson also has said Vickie has amazed her with her ability to culminate herself as an artist and to continually develop her writing and producing skills.

Immediately after her win on Star Search Vickie was signed to a development deal with Sony Records and recorded five songs with the label. In 2004 she released a digital single on A&M records "Like no other" executive produced by Ron Fair. In 2005 she released the album "Never Gonna Stop". The album includes the song "Forbidden love" co-written and produced by the legendary Narada Michael Walden. The top ringtone site Myxer featured Vickie's single "That Boy" 5 times as the pick of the day download.

Vickie has graced the stage of Carnegie Hall with the New York Pops Orchestra under the direction of the legendary Skitch Henderson as well as opened for such acts as Reba Mcentire, Deborah Cox and Ashford & Simpson. Vickie has also toured China, Japan and the US to support the release of her CD "Never gonna Stop." Last year she was featured on the test pilot for the CW TV talent series The Next: Fame is at your doorstep. Vickie was surprised at her home by celebrity mentor Gloria Estefan who moved in and groomed her to perform for a celebrity panel of John Rich & Queen Latifah.

Currently Vickie is writing and recording her second album "Time Machine" with Producer/Videographer David Veslocki. David and Vickie will be releasing monthly video's and singles and have already received over 100,000 views on Youtube on her first two singles "Long Gone" and "Throwback Love."
