Singer-songwriter, recent recipient of 3M award, and nationally-touring recording artist Jess Godwin (iTunes: FOOL ME ONCE, BE A LIGHT) pours her vulnerable heart and dynamic voice into Elton John’s greatest hits. Sir Elton’s sometimes eccentric, always heartfelt blend of classical, gospel, and rock perfectly suits the sensitive and courageous Godwin. Tony-Award Winner and Jess Godwin fan Kristin Chenoweth lauds, “I just love her voice… she gets it.” Godwin shines playing piano-driven, chart-topping hits like “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” and “Benny and the Jets.”
