Normani Kordei shortened her name of birth (DOB May 31st 1996) from Normani Kordei Hamilton. She has slipped effortlessly or so it seems into the trio singer, dancer and model. Part of Fifth Harmony she is a light lyric soprano
with 4 octaves, 3 notes. Born in Atlanta Georgia USA she grew up (so far) in New Orleans Louisiana. As a result of Hurricane Katrina she moved again to Houston Texas. She is tri heritage African American, Indian American and French American.
2. Like a lot of her fans and young girls she started young singing and dancing at 4. She says her influencers were Aretha Franklin, Beyonce Alicia Keys and Jenifer Hudson. Before joining a girl group she considered herself a gospel and soul singer. From a young age she won a number of awards and things looked promising. Of course the X Factor happened which catapulted to her along but prior she got to the Miss Texas final.
During the X Factor she and Erin Ray another contestant became friends and naturally rumour started, both denied the claim. Normani acted as Bryn in the short film called BOOK about bullying and social prejudice. She has since modelled for target and appeared on the catwalk.
"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..The fact that they believe in our potential as a group is a great achievement." said Normani Kordei.Normani Kordei., 2012
She is self proclaimed as being quite shy, but like many shy people she lets it come out on stage. She becomes 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". Normani K got a yes from all 4 judges but Simon and LA Reid said they liked her. That pretty much guarantees you something.Demi Lovato said "Your performance was incredible and you really do have The X Factor." she performed Chain of fools by Aretha Franklin.

Many have modelled for magazines as individuals but this can be because magazine covers work better with a single persona.
