My name is Natalie DiPietro and I'm a 16-year-old from Centerville, Ohio. This November, I auditioned for A Cappella Academy, a 10-day a cappella camp held in Los Angeles, California. This year around 400 students from across the world auditioned to be a part of this prestigious camp and only 80 students were accepted including me!

Music has been a part of my life for as far as I can remember. I love playing the piano, singing, and writing original music. I'm currently a member of Forte A Cappella at Centerville High School. It's been a dream of mine for a very long time to make it into this group and I'm so happy that I've been able to sing with Forte my junior year. Singing is one of my main passions in life.
This is where I'm asking for your help.
The total cost to attend A Cappella Academy is $1,995 and this doesn't include airfare or any other travel costs. My family doesn't have enough money to send me to A Cappella Academy and I would hate to miss out on such an incredible opportunity to pursue my passion with some of the best in the business. Just this year, almost all of our money has been spent on cancer treatments for my mom.
Every little bit helps and if you can't contribute, please feel free to help spread the word and share with people that might be willing to help out.
I'm unbelievably grateful for any support or help in spreading the word to get me to A Cappella Academy this summer.
