'''Normani Kordei '''(born: '''Normani Kordei Hamilton'''; May 31, 1996) is an African-American/Indian-American/French-American singer, dancer & model. She's a member of the girl group, [[Fifth Harmony]]. Normani is a Light Lyric Soprano with 4 octaves and 3 notes and the third-youngest out of the original members.
 
 
==Personal Life==
 
Normani was born in Atlanta, GA, and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 2005, she moved to Houston, Texas due to the arrival of Hurricane Katrina. She is African-American, Indian-American & French-American. [[File:Fifth Harmony Normani's Solos|thumb|right|335 px]]
 
 
Hamilton has been singing and dancing since four years old. Her main musical influences are Aretha Franklin, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, and Jennifer Hudson. She considered herself as a singer of Soul and Gospel until she was incorporated in a girl group. Hamilton has won a number awards and honors. Before [[The X Factor]] she competed in the Miss Texas and made ​​it to the final but decided to audition for The X Factor. During the program she had a great friendship with [[Arin Ray]]. There have been many rumors about a romantic relationship between the two, but both of them have denied. This has caused a conflict with the show and [[Simon Cowell]]. Hamilton also played the role of Bryn in a short film called "Book," which deals with bullying and social prejudice. "There's definitely a lot of pressure on us, being part of the team of [[Simon Cowell]], because he is one of the most respected search engine talent in the world, "says Hamilton. "The fact that they believe in our potential as a group is a great achievement." Hamilton has modeled for brands such as Target and has also made ​​appearances on the catwalk.
 
 
Normani says she's a very shy person, but when it comes to perform on stage she's a different person, "She (Beyoncé) says that she's a very shy person, when she's Beyoncé but when she gets on stage she's Sasha Fierce. So when I'm on stage I pretend like I'm Beyoncé".
 
 
==The X Factor==
 
 
===Audition===
 
Normani got a yes from all four judges. Simon and L.A. said they liked her, [[Demi Lovato]] said "Your performance was incredible and you really do have [[The X Factor]]." She sang the song [[Chain Of Fools]] by Aretha Franklin.
 
 
===Bootcamp===

Like most of the other girls, Normani's first bootcamp wasn't shown. Therefore, it is unknown what she had sung, until she revealed on Twitter during an #AskNormani session that she sang "[[If I Ain't Got You]]" by Alicia Keys — [[Lauren Jauregui]]'s audition song. Normani sang [[What Makes You Beautiful]] against [[Arin Ray]]. Throughout this time, the two showed mild affection. The judges enjoyed both of their performances. Particularly Demi, who thought Normani was great. She was eliminated but then placed in [[Fifth Harmony]].
 
 
===Performances===
 
Known as "the fierce one", Normani and the girls of Fifth Harmony earned a very loyal and devoted fanbase by performing songs that showcased their vocal abilities. Despite judges [[L.A. Reid]] and [[Britney Spears]] not liking them, the girls were voted through each week by the public and also had the support of their mentor [[Simon Cowell]], who wasn't afraid to let the girls know how proud he was of them.
 
 
== Solo Career ==
 
Outside of [[Fifth Harmony]], Normani has demonstrated her talents as a solo artist by releasing several covers to Soundcloud and YouTube for her fans; Say It by Tory Lanez, Fake Love / Sneakin' by Drake and Don't Touch My Hair / Cranes in the Sky by Solange Knowles. Alongside this, before she auditioned for the X Factor, she released a video cover to YouTube of Beyoncé's Best Thing I Never Had. She has also appeared in dance videos by the group's choreographer, Sean Bankhead.
 
 
Normani has yet to release an official original single outside of the group, and is one of only two (the other being [[Ally Brooke]]) to not have released anything; [[Lauren Jauregui|Lauren]] has been featured on Marian Hill's [[Back To Me]] and Halsey's Strangers, and [[Dinah Jane|Dinah]] released a cover of [[Dancing Like A White Girl]] to iTunes in 2011 and also released All 2 U featuring Stunna June in 2016.
 
 
Normani has modeled for several magazines without her other bandmates, just as several other members of the group have.
