Singer-songwriter, writer, actress, comedian, and painter, the charismatic Natalia Lugo was born in the state of New Hampshire. Both of her parents are from Puerto Rico, where she was raised since her first-year birth. She identifies as a 100% Puertorrican woman. Lugo’s mother passed away from Leukemia when she was six and even though music would never replace her absence, music became Natalia’s shelter. Lugo developed an interest in music at a very young age. Her father is a musician and she would watch him play guitar and sing. It wasn’t long until she began to join him in family activities. He surprised her with her first guitar for her birthday and it became her loyal companion from the age of 13. With this guitar, she wrote her first songs. Her debut as a musician was in a local band, where she had the opportunity to perform around her town.
Natalia studied music at La Escuela Libre de Música y Bellas Artes in Ponce, PR. There she took musical theory, cello, singing, and acting classes. She participated in various plays, short films, movies, and improv. When she graduated high school, she enrolled in Universidad de Puerto Rico Recinto de Rio Piedras for Communications Studies focused on Audiovisuals for Film and TV. Her experiences in life, love, and faith gave her the drive to pursue her dreams in the artistic realm. She decided to follow a career doing what she loved most, music.
At age 19, she began working on local restaurants as a waitress and bartender to be able to cost her first album. She uploaded a viral video in March 2013 that helped her get noticed in Puerto Rico. She began exploring the comedy side that led her to gain a following of over 400k in all her social media platforms. This opened doors for Lugo in traditional media, participating in local TV shows, radio, movies, theatre, concerts, and more. Has written and acted for original plays in the most acclaimed venues in the island and has traveled overseas to participate in Hollywood movie experiences. Since the release of her music album she has won a Premios Paoli award for the best pop singer, opened for artists such as Ricky Martin in El Coliseo José Miguel Agrelot Coliseum, presented her debut solo concert on Vivo Beach Club, a self-written music theatre concert on Centro de Bellas Artes Luis A.
