Charlotte Gordon Cumming (born 2 February 1958) is a Scottish contemporary singer-songwriter and music producer, daughter of a Scottish clan chief. She wrote the Sugababes hit "Soul Sound", nominated for MTV Best European Single Award 2001. In 2005, the song was covered by Indonesian singer Joy Tobing on her album Rise and was recorded by Cumming on her album Mindwalking.
In September 2008, while at her brother's estate in Scotland, Cumming, her husband, her brother, and her sister-in-law ate poisonous Cortinarius speciosissimus mushrooms, which had been misidentified as an edible species. Several of the group experienced kidney failure as a result. Cumming remained on kidney dialysis while seeking alternative medicine treatments until 2012 when she had a kidney transplant.
