Natalie Royal hits Kickstarter goal in 24 hours

Charlotte native and current Belmont University attendee Natalie Royal posted a Kickstarter campaign on Feb. 20 in an effort to help fund her first full-length album. In roughly 24 hours, supporters helped her surpass the goal. Now, roughly 48 hours later, she's raised even more.

With an initial goal of $3,500, Royal's current campaign is at $5,935... and she still has 38 days to go. Royal posted on her Facebook page, "I. am. floored. ... Thank you so so much. I am incredibly blessed."

Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Project creators offer "rewards" to supporters — in Royal's case, there are thank you notes, personalized songs, signed albums and even baked goods.

Perhaps it was her cute and crafty video that helped earn the support, but it's more likely her talent as a songwriter which has improved significantly in the last few years. Here's the campaign video that is included on her Kickstarter page:

Royal's next scheduled appearance in Charlotte is for part of my (full disclosure) Off the Record series at the Evening Muse during FemmeFest on May 16.
