Music: Natalie Askew

NataliePromo1_small-800Natalie is a wife to David and mom to Esther, Vera, and Abram who has a love for worshiping through music. With her father being in ministry, singing in front of people has been a part of Natalie’s life since she was 3 years old.

David and Natalie are part of the group formerly known as Hello August until the Askew’s felt a prompting to change direction. The Lord impressed upon David to change the name and tour under the name “Natalie Askew” as a solo artist.

“My passion is to make a difference for the kingdom, and I want to follow the Lord’s will for my life whether it is leading worship or sharing the love of Christ with a neighbor.“
