Before becoming a finalist on NBC's The Voice, she was “a normal teenager” from a small town, singing with a worship group at church, nursing homes, and benefits. While on the show, she impressed the coaches with her talent, work ethic, and authenticity.

Dare To Be founders Natalie Grant and Charlotte Gambill met for the first time while attending an event in California. Even though they’d grown up in different parts of the world (Natalie in the U.S, Charlotte in the U.K.) they quickly discovered their stories overlapped close to home. Their connection and friendship was immediate, and it wasn’t long before they began dreaming of a way to combine their ministries to empower and honor women.
In 2012, they founded Dare To Be and launched the first event tour which is designed to allow women to experience the benefits of a large conference, but packed into an affordable single evening event. The night is not just a speaker and concert, but is a fully integrated program, including teaching, storytelling, worship, and inspiring moments of recognition and honor. The purpose of the event is to open up space in women’s hearts, daring them to embrace all of who they’re created to be in Christ.
