Natália Kelly is an American-Austrian singer. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, USA, she was born to a Brazilian mother and an American father with roots in Austria and Ireland. At six, in the year 2000, she moved to Austria. Kelly’s musical journey began early on. By ten, in 2004, she performed in the children’s opera for “Around the World in 80 Days” at Baden state theatre. That same year, she clinched the second position on the ORF TV show, Kiddy Contest, performing a duet with Manuel Gutleb. Over the next few years, she showcased her talent in several contests, including classical music competitions like Prima La Musica.

Kelly joined the children’s pop ensemble Gimme 5 from 2005 to 2007. The group was affiliated with Universal Music, and its music was crafted under the expertise of Alexander Kahr.

In 2011, Kelly secured a victory in the long-standing Austrian talent competition, The Voice (distinct from the global The Voice franchise). This triumph led her to a recording deal with Alexander Kahr.

On 15th February 2013, Kelly aimed for a shot at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, participating in Austria’s national selection event, Österreich rockt den Song Contest, with her track “Shine”. By the end of the voting session, she accumulated 70 points, making her Austria’s representative for the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, Sweden. She performed in the first semi-final on 14th May 2013. Unfortunately, Austria couldn’t make it to the final, ranking 14th out of 16 with a score of 27 points. Kelly’s debut album, “Natália Kelly”, made its global release on 12th April 2013.

In July 2013, the follow up for “Shine” was released: “Face The Day”. In November she performed at the Eurovision Party in Cologne. She also teamed up with Fii & Friends for a concert in U4 in Vienna. In January 2014, Natália was able to perform at the Open Air festival in Seefeld.
