Early life

Grant is married to her producer Bernie Herms and gave birth to twin girls on February 16, 2007.[2] he was a speaker and performer on the Revolve Tour, a conference for teen girls from Women of Faith.

Her studies led her and her husband to travel to India to witness the red-light districts and what is being done to stop them. That experience, coming in the middle of a restless, stressed-out season for her, completely changed the trajectory of Natalie’s life, awakening her out of complacency and passivity and into a life driven by compassion and passion. And it has forever changed the way she approaches her music.[3]
