Thirteen long years ago today (September 11) one of my PERSONAL favorite songs in S Club history. ‘Natural’ was released on September 11, 2000. The song is an English adaption of the French song Tous Les Maux D’Amour performed by Norma Ray her version of the song can be heard by clicking here. The song proved to be a hit single for S Club coming in at #3 in the UK Charts.
Natural was released as the second single off of “7″, and became the only single released by S Club 7 to not have main vocals given to Jo O’Meara. It features the b-side “If This Is Love” and was even released as the first single off of “7″ in America.

Here’s a random Interview from Express with Rachel describing a typical weekend.
Singer Rachel Stevens topped the charts with hits such as Don’t Stop Movin’ and Reach as part of pop group S Club 7.
She later found success as a solo artist, with the single Sweet Dreams My LA Ex reaching number two in the charts. In 2008 she finished in second place on Strictly Come Dancing. Rachel, 35, lives in north London with her husband Alex, 36, and two-year-old daughter, Amelie.
“On a Friday night, Alex and I tend to stay in after Amelie has gone to bed at 7pm and just chill out. if we are lucky, one of Amelie’s grannies will take her for an overnight stay, so we can go out to dinner or see friends and have a lie-in the next day. Both our families live close by which is handy.
“Saturday is very much ‘entertain Amelie day’. We will either go to parties with her friends, or take her to Hampstead heath for a walk or to a park to play. in the afternoon when she is napping, I may catch up with my reading, or online shopping, which is always dangerous! I’m interested in moving into fashion design, so I love keeping up with trends and studying magazines for the latest must-haves.
“On Saturday night we may stay in – alex is the cook and I help him with the preparation. we are both foodies and love trying out new restaurants, so if we have the chance we will go out for dinner. Benares in mayfair is very good.
“On Sunday morning we tend to go out to brunch and either meet friends at a cafe near Hampstead or just hang out with Amelie. in the afternoon, we regularly have Sunday tea parties for the family.
“In the evening, I like to just relax with a box set, such as Breaking Bad, or a movie.”
Rachel Stevens is a WaterAid ambassador and has collaborated with ethical water company Belu, which gives 100 per cent of profits to WaterAid.
In support of Wateraid Rachel has vowed to carry a melon everyday for the next six days and challenges us to do the same. Here’s Rachels bit in her latest blog entry over at the official website!!
This week, WaterAid’s partner, ethical bottled water company, Belu, is challenging the British public to following in the footsteps of Dirty Dancing’s ‘Baby’ (what’s not to like about that!?) and to carry a watermelon – for six days! – to celebrate World Water Week, September 1-6 2013.
They’re asking us all to adopt a watermelon for the week and ask your friends, family and work colleagues to sponsor you for taking part! They can help you welcome your melons into your lives and you can take it on your daily commute, to the shops or even out for dinner – the choices are endless;) – just make sure you tweet them to me and to @WaterAidUK so we can see what you’re up to!
There’s a reason for this and that is to raise awareness of issues faced by the millions of people all over the world who still live without access to safe, clean water and have to walk miles every day, putting themselves and their families at risk, just so that they have this basic need. I witnessed people in Ethiopia first who were doing this every day and was genuinely moved by what I saw and committed myself to helping them. One lady in particular, my age, with 8 children – Ajame – really touched me and asked me to help her … so here I am. I may be carrying more watermelons as the week go by and hope that you will do the same.
Earlier this morning Rachel posted her melon hard at work.
Look out for our melon on our Twitter beginning tomorrow @RStevensCom. Tweet us yours as well!!
I’d like to welcome you to the latest version of RachelStevens.com – Your premier source for every little thing Rachel Stevens. This new version features the new Select pictures from Rachel and was created by our amazing friend and designer Stephen! The website has a whole new look and feel, and we are so excited to share it with you.
In addition to the new look, we’ve edited some of the pages and decided to integrate more of S Club’s history into the mix. S Club was a big part of Rachel’s life and for to long we’ve overlooked that aspect, but why? Tell us what you think we’d LOVE to hear from you!
Quite a day for us fans? Last week it was said that we can vote for the best debut single by any artist. There was quite a long list for us to choose from. The Top 5 list was released JUST YESTERDAY, And my oh my S Club fans have pulled through for us. Here’s the top 5.
01. Britney Spears – … Baby One More Time
02. S Club 7 – Bring It All Back
03. Rachel Stevens – Sweet Dreams My L.A. Ex
04. Girls Aloud – Sound Of The Underground
05. Spice Girls – Wannbe
I think over all, Rachel is the winner on this. Not only does she appear once, but technically TWICE!
It’s been along time coming, but RachelStevensOfficial.com has finally relaunched with a fresh, sleek new design. The new website has a nice homey feel. My favorite part of the new site is the “Memories” page which offers new pictures from old photoshoots (Such as the ‘Alive’ video shoot, the “Funkydory” (Rerelease) photoshoot or the ‘Sunshine’ album cover and MUCH more).
Be sure to check it out by clicking the picture above! It’s so nice to see this back! Hopefully it’s a sign of many things to come!
