No British woman had done it in almost twenty years, but that didn’t stop Natasha Bedingfield from snatching the first U.S. number one pop single slot in a generation.

“Unwritten”—off her debut album of the same name – was the most played pop song on the radio in the U.S. in 2006.
And when it became the theme song for hit reality TV series "The Hills," Bedingfield became a household name all over America.
Back across the Atlantic, she was already making waves with the chart-topping single “These Words.”
Bedingfield was lucky enough to learn from the best. Her brother Daniel had already cracked the UK music market with “Gotta Get Thru This.”
Bedingfield well and truly stole his thunder when "Pocketful of Sunshine" - off her second album - sold nearly three million copies.
Her massive success led to collaboration with some of the biggest names in showbiz, including Justin Timberlake, Eve, Sean Kingston and Lady Gaga. She’s even rubbed shoulders with the biggest name in politics, performing for US President Barack Obama at his Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
And as an ambassador for children’s charity "The Global Angels," her off-stage work is just as inspiring.
