Song writer to Elton John, Bette Midler and Neil Diamond

Beth Nielsen Chapman has written songs for some of the biggest names in music - Elton John, Bette Midler, Crystal Gayle, Neil Diamond to name just a few. She is also a singer in her own right - her album Sand and Water  was about the death of her husband and was released to great acclaim. Last year however she began to struggle to pen her songs and discovered the cause was not writer’s block, but a brain tumour. Beth underwent surgery and is now beginning her UK tour with her new album, ‘Back to Love’. She joins Jenni in the studio to sing live.
