Normani Kordei is one-fourth of one of the most popular girl groups in the world, Fifth Harmony. The release of Fifth Harmony’s sophomore album 7/27, on Syco Music/Epic Records, is the latest in a series of record-breaking accomplishments for the group. “Work from Home,” the album’s 3x-platinum certified first single, earned Fifth Harmony their first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, notching the top spot on both the Billboard Rhythmic and Pop Songs charts. The group’s accomplishments on the charts add to an award-winning 2016, with first-time wins at the American Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards and Much Music Video Awards, their second win at the Kids Choice Awards, two wins at the MTV Video Music Awards & Radio Disney Music Awards and three wins at the Teen Choice Awards.
Normani was born in Atlanta, Georgia, and raised in the city of New Orleans. When Normani isn’t busy traveling the world on tour, acting as an Ambassador for foundations near to her heart, or volunteering her time to handfuls of charities, she enjoys spending her free time being a normal 20-year-old; dancing, jumping on the trampoline, tumbling, pretending to be a makeup artist, watching scary movies, writing down her inner most thoughts, watching American Horror Story, and constantly working on perfecting her crafts.
