Elton Raves About His Former Backing Singer's Autobiographical Show

Written by Chief Editor.

Cidny Bullens is a two-time Grammy nominee whose 40-year career in the music business began auspiciously- working with Elton, Bob Dylan, Rod Stewart, and Four Seasons songwriter/producer Bob Crewe.

In March of 1996, Cindy lost her 11 year-old daughter Jessie to cancer. This inspired Cindy to write and record her widely acclaimed 1999 CD Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth, featuring appearances by the likes of Bonnie Raitt and Bryan Adams.

Cindy’s 2005 album, Dream #29, boasted Elton playing piano on the title track, and a duet with Delbert McClinton.

Two years later, Cindy formed the upstart and uprising super-trio The Refugees with Wendy Waldman and Deborah Holland. They have released two albums, and the next one is due later this year. 

In 2011, Cindy became ''Cidny,'' making the difficult and daunting decision to transition from female to male. There's now a show based on his life. Somewhere Between: Not an ordinary life is currently playing Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the Adobe Theater.
 
This can be seen tonight and tomorrow evening at 7:30 p.m.;  Sunday at 3 p.m.
 
Here's what Elton had to say about it:
 
''You have to see this! It is an extraordinary story of an exceptional human being. What a story! What a life! What a fantastic show!''
