Natasha Bedingfield checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@natashabedingfield) on Friday (May 9) with the following message:
I’m in a New York rehearsal studio right now with my band. It’s the greatest feeling ever to be working with such gifted and dedicated musicians. Seriously, this tour is going to be quality! Anthemic pop songs with soul are the goal… and boy, have my guys and gals got soul!
I can’t wait to get going on my first ever American tour with myself headlining. We have two massive buses and for some of the tour there are rumors that the John Lennon bus will be joining. It’s decked out with a complete recording studio and film editing suite. Its whole purpose is to educate young people musically and tons of peeps will win a chance to go on the bus and check it out.
Oh, and I have breaking news….my song ‘Pocketful of Sunshine’ reached number 8 on the US top 100 radio chart! AND it got to number 1 on iTunes this week too!
Thank you guys for all your support. As my mate Ne-Yo’s song says, ‘It’s all because of you!’ Everyone at home in the UK and Europe, thanks for your patience while I represent us over here in US. I can’t wait till I can come back to where my roots are and tour again.
