Daniel Bedingfield's pop wizardry earned him a BRIT Award, six U.K. Top 10 singles and 4 million in album sales from 2001 to 2004. Now, after eight years, the songwriter who rocketed to the top of the pop world with Gotta Get Thru This is back in a huge way. Please join us as we welcome him to The GRAMMY Museum for the latest in our Spotlight series. The son of New Zealand philanthropists who relocated to London to work in the areas affected by the Brixton riots, Bedingfield and his two talented sisters, Natasha and Nikola Rachelle (The Golden Phoenix), were reared in a musical household surrounded by the diverse rock and pop sounds of the time - as well as the reggae embraced by his family's many Jamaican friends. Ambitious, bold, brazen even; with his EP Daniel is taking a distinctly different approach from his former pop-loving, uber-calculated chart topping debut and venturing into brave new territory to carve out his claim as the wild and diverse wide-eyed crooner he's always been. Hear Bedingfield, along with GRAMMY Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli as moderator, talk about his journey and the making of his latest EP. Following the interview, Bedingfield will take questions from the audience and perform a selection of songs. You can download the EP now for free at www.danielbedingfield.com.
