In an intimate moment during his SiriusXM Town Hall with moderator Elvis Costello, Burt Bacharach spoke about the very personal and devastating hardship he faced when his daughter Nikki committed suicide. Touching on Nikki’s struggles all the way back to her premature birth, and how it impacted his family, the legendary songwriter described how talking about the ordeal in his book “Anybody Who Had a Heart” was a “catharsis” before he goes on to explain why he has never opened the suicide note she left “to dad.”
