Daniel John Bedingfield (born December 3, 1979) is a New Zealand singer songwriter currently based in the UK. He is the brother of pop singers Natasha Bedingfield and Nikola Bedingfield. He shares the Guinness World Record as the only British brother and sister to have solo number-ones in UK chart history with Natasha.

Childhood and music career

Daniel was born in New Zealand and moved to the UK when he was a child. After his song "Gotta Get Thru This" (which he recorded in his bedroom) gathered momentum on white label, surprisingly through the underground garage music scene, it went on to become a #1 hit in the UK Top 40 in December 2001. He has since had 2 more #1 singles ("If You're Not The One" and "Never Gonna Leave Your Side"), as well as three further top 10 hits. His debut album, also titled Gotta Get Thru This, reached #2 in the UK albums chart and went on to sell more than 3 million copies.

In 2003 he appeared on the Delirious? album World Service, singing guest backing vocals on "Every Little Thing".

On New Year's Day 2004, Beddingfield nearly lost his life in a severe car accident while visiting his parents in New Zealand. As a result, he was left with serious head and neck injuries from which he took six months to recover.

He was subsequently signed to Polydor Records and has been one of their most successful artists in recent years. As well as critical acclaim, he won a Brit award in 2004 for Best British Male Artist.

In 2004, he released a second album, Second First Impression, which reached #8 in the UK. As yet it has sold very poorly compared to his first offering. The first single, "Nothing Hurts Like Love", reached #3 in the UK. The second, "Wrap My Words Around You", peaked at number 12. The third and final single, "The Way", became his first to miss the top 40, reaching #41. He also was a guest star as him self on Sabrina, the Teenage Witch
