Sophie Ellis-Bextor chose to cover Madonna's "Open Your Heart" as part of her BBC Radio 2 Piano Room performance with the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Ellis-Bextor's Piano Room set for BBCR2 saw her play her latest single "Breaking The Circle" and her huge hit "Murder On The Dancefloor", as well as a cover of Madonna's True Blue song "Open Your Heart".

Ellis-Bextor said she chose to cover the Madonna song because it "has been a favourite of mine since I was little so this is a real privilege."

Jessie Ware, Suede, RAYE, Ellie Goulding, Sugababes, P!nk, Belinda Carlisle, Louise and more have also taken part in BBCR2's Piano Room Month 2023.

Ellis-Bextor will release her first new studio album in more than six years, HANA, in June.
