Natasha Bedingfield, one of the UK’s biggest female stars, is launching her first-ever U.S. headlining tour with a 20-city trek that kicks off in Myrtle Beach, SC on May 21 and winds down in San Francisco, CA on July 10. The British songstress, whose albums have sold in excess of 6 million worldwide, has joined forces with Verizon Wireless to further connect with fans via mobile technology.

Bedingfield, whose “Unwritten” was the first single by a British female to hit No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard pop chart in 19 years, has long made female independence and inspiration the subject of her songs. Her tour includes support from two other strong female acts, the Veronicas and Kate Voegele.

“Nothing is more exciting than taking it to the stage and performing my songs live,” Bedingfield said in a statement. “Having toured around the world, I couldn’t be more thrilled to finally be embarking on my first tour of the U.S. with Verizon, who is always at the forefront of mobile technology and great new music. It’s going to be a wicked summer run.”
