Naturi Naughton

Naturi Naughton was born and raised in East Orange, New Jersey, and started singing in the choir at New Hope Baptist Church when she was just 5 years old. By the time Naturi was 14, her career shifted from local talent to professional recording artist.

She became a member of girl band 3LW, and within six months the group had scored a record deal with Sony/Epic Records, eventually achieving a platinum selling album (1.3 million sold).

While still a teenager, Naturi toured nationwide with Destiny's Child, N'SYNC, and had the opportunity to work with such notable producers as P. Diddy and Full Force.

Just before her junior year of college, Naturi landed the role of Little Inez for the National Touring Company of Hairspray, which led to her Broadway debut in the same role in Hairspray in 2006.

Naturi made her film debut in the feature film Notorious playing the role of Lil' Kim. She is currently working on her own music for her solo project.
