Normani Kordei of Fifth Harmony

Normani Kordei was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Kordei was springing with talent from a young age. She grew up balancing singing, dancing and gymnastics. “I was that kid that would go on a bunch of auditions,” said Kordei.

She understands that hard work does not always guarantee that your dreams will come true. “So for me to be able to get this opportunity and have such a big platform and actually live out my dreams,” said Kordei. “I am really grateful to call this my job. A lot of the time people have a job that they don’t necessarily like or something that does not inspire them, but I’m so grateful that I’m inspired every single day, and I get to do what I love.” Kordei is one of the five members of the girl group Fifth Harmony. Beyoncé had a major impact on the type of artist that Kordei wanted to be. She admires Beyoncé’s work ethic and the passion she puts into her projects and business ventures. Kordei would sit in her grandmother’s living room in front of the television and watch Destiny’s Child videos on the 106 & Park countdown. “I loved Destiny’s Child and nobody could say anything wrong about any of the girls,” said Kordei, “So, I really wanted to be in a girl group.”

As a member of Fifth Harmony “there’s never a dull moment,” said Kordei. Fame has given her the chance to live out her dreams. The group gets to tour the world and go to award shows. Kordei has met many of the artist that she looks up to. At the most recent VMA’s, Kordei met her one of her biggest inspirations, Alicia Keys. “I used to try to wear my hair like her and sing all of her songs at the top of my lungs,” said Kordei. She also met Mariah Carey and Ciara, and got to see them perform. She describes band life as having a sleepover every single night.

The bandmates spend nearly every moment together. They have developed “an amazing bond that is untouchable.”Even after being in the spotlight for much of her life, Kordei says that she still gets nervous before a performance. “I get super freaked out,” said Kordei. “My heart starts racing, I start having butterflies, but it’s like you can’t really go, because you are on national television and everybody’s watching; your favorite artists are in the crowd. It’s just so many things going on at once.” But that is when she goes into Beyoncé mode. “She has Sasha Fierce, I have her,” said Kordei. “When I’m on stage, I literally feel like I’m her and like okay what would she do in this moment? Even if you’re tired, think of how Beyoncé keeps going hard. She doesn’t get tired.” Kordei is loving life in Fifth Harmony and is looking forward to upcoming projects. Fifth Harmony released their album 7/27 on July 27, 2016. The debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200. This year alone the girl group has taken three Teen Choice Awards (Choice Summer Song, Choice Song from a Movie & Social Media Queens) and two MTV Video Music Awards (Song of the Summer for “All In My Head (Flex)” & Best Collaboration Video for “Work From Home”) under their belt. In her down time Kordei likes to paint, go out to the movies and watch Netflix. Maybe one day soon Kordei will be on the big screen herself. “I really want to cross over into acting,” said Kordei. “That has always been a dream of mine. “I always kind of look at J Lo and think wow she did it so gracefully, and she was successful at doing both at the same time, which I think is so inspiring and I aspire to be just like her one day.” She also spends her time advocating for The CyberSmile Foundation and Heal the Bay Organization; she is an ambassador for both. She volunteers with a multitude of other charities, as well. Kordei lives in the balance between a normal 20-year old and award-winning superstar.
