The attraction of natural talent has a way of intriguing others because of its beautiful wonder. We had the chance to experience that beautiful wonder recently at Quad Studios. ENSPIRE had the opportunity to sit in on a listening session by Natalia Marrokin. Natalia is an up and coming singer and songwriter from Mexico City, Mexico. At the age of 8 young Natalia found her passion and love for music. She began singing with family and religious functions before elevating to bigger stages. Adding education to her growing talent, Natalie graduated from Berklee College of music. Now, 22 years old her musical genre of expertise are R&B, blues, and soul.
Quad Studios is famous for its musical legends and great artists who make unforgettable hits, such as Beyonce, Ne-Yo, Lil Wayne, DMX, and many more. This is where Marrokin performed for an audience of select media/press outlets and others familiar with the industry to introduce all to her beautiful voice. Her soulful voice silenced the room along with her talented band who accompanied her performance. A live band and an amazing voice are great complements to entertain and engage a music lover.
Natalia performed her first single, “I Feel Strong” which she also wrote. “I Feel Strong” incorporates love and heartbreak while still not losing your strength as a woman. Feeling strong and free while being in love can touch the hearts of many, love is crucial in our society today. “I Feel Strong” will take you on a journey of love.
When asked what inspires her she stated: “Nature inspires me, my garden in Mexico helps me write, my family and love inspires me.” She idolizes artists like Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, Chaka Khan and Whitney Houston and hopes to become as great as them someday. We’ve consistently seen Latin women break barriers and takeover charts. When asked what are her goals and what she wants to accomplish Natalia answered: “I spread positivity and consider myself a strong powerful woman, I want to give and spread love.” She then continued to say, “There are a lot of things going on in the world, all these things with women inequality, I want to be a powerful woman within myself and make a change.” Natalia’s goal is to share and portray everything she feels strongly about in her melodies. Regardless of your situation or what issues directly affects you, Natalia will use her musical talents to spread her voice and thoughts on what is going on in our world today. She is currently traveling around the states showcasing her talents and performing her single.
