The Pulse of Entertainment: Natalie Jean Releases Duet Single ‘Je
Me Demande' with Guy Roberts, Her Father Guy Robert Jean
By Dr. Eunice Moseley
(August 22, 2023) - "He was very popular amongst the Haitians,"
said Natalie Jean about her father Guy Robert Jean who she duets with on her new single "Je Me Demande (I Wonder)".
Natalie is a Haitian-American. Her father was a popular ballad singer/songwriter in Haiti, who also played acoustic
guitar. Once he relocated his family to the United States, Guy Robert Jean became popular in the Washington, DC area where
he played in the local clubs up until his passing at the age of 78. To honor him Natalie performed a duet like Natalie Cole
did with her father Nate King Cole after he passed on with his hit song "Unforgettable." Natalie Jean does an excellent
job modernizing the single with her supporting vocals.
"(Natalie Cole's duet with Nate King Cole) It was the
inspiration," Jean said when I commented on the likeness of the two duets. "I figured out a way to do it with music
producer Alex Von Guggenberg."
Her father Guy could sing in French, English, Spanish and Creole. Natalie has
the same talent, she can sing in French, English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole. She is labeled in the U.S. as an American-Country
music singer/songwriter, but she also sings Jazz, Pop, R&B, Blues, World and Rock. Natalie and Guy Robert have already
been nominated for a Hollywood Independent Music Award in the World category for another duet single "Smoking Ke Fan."
"My father was singing out the womb," she said with a little laugh. "By day he worked as an accountant.
He had several albums come out and he did a little acting too."
"I'm a shy person," Natalie Jean
said about herself when I asked. "I started out writing spiritual poetry. I debuted (as a singer/songwriter) in 2011,
so it's been 12 years. It's a 24/7 job because I do have a day job. I was in real-estate for 15 years when the pandemic hit...I
wasn't for the shot, so we had to part ways."
Natalie has excellent music videos too and when I mentioned this one video in
particular, she said, "That was my first video for the ‘Red Room Remix'. I was having fun with that one. I was
letting go. It was done in Atlanta, Georgia. I was on a budget...I met a guy online and he said he had students; to use them
they would be cheaper. I'm still friends with them!"
Natalie has won two gold medals and one silver medal
at the Global Music Awards for her single "Heroes." She won American Artist of the Year and Best American Song for
her single "I Am" at the 2021 Indie Music Channel Awards. Her single "Authentically Me" won the 2023 Montgomery
County Commissions' Girl Power contest. www.Natalie-Jean.com
