Becki is a multi-award-winning singer, songwriter and saxophonist, with an incredibly unique voice and style. She is a Grammy-nominated musician, with three number 1 albums in the US smooth jazz charts. One of her biggest fans, Sir Michael Parkinson, gave her one of her favourite reviews: “Becki Biggins, great lass, great singer!”
