Second Cup Café. Daniel Bedingfield

Second Cup Cafe, Saturday Early Show, Daniel Bedingfield
Daniel Bedingfield performed an acoustic version of his Top 10 U.S. hit, "Gotta Get Thru This," for The Saturday Early Show's Second Cup Café.

Bedingfield's new album is a mixture of R & B, classic pop, soul and a little disco. After peddling his self-pressed records to record stores, Bedingfield hit it big in England with "Gotta Get Thru This." It made it to the popular 'Pure Garage 4' compilation — propelling him to his own record deal.

The 22-year-old was born in New Zealand, but moved with his parents to England when he was 3 months old. His parents worked as social workers in South East London.

Bedingfield dabbled in music as a youth, but, at 16, he became more serious with it when his family saved enough to buy a synthesizer and later a computer.

Now, he may have nicer equipment, but he's still making the music from his heart.
