Spotlight: Emeli Sandé
Allow us to introduce you to Scottish singer and songwriter Emeli Sandé. This pop star has already established herself in the UK and is now slowly coming about in the states. Her debut album, Our Version of Events, landed the No. 1 slot in the UK charts. She is known for her soulful voice and was influenced by many female musicians and one in particular being Alicia Keys.
Emeli first started her music career by writing for underground artists. She was then introduced to the urban world when she did a record with a rapper named Chipmunk. After doing a cover for “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall” by Coldplay, the band chose her to join their tour as a supporting act. Emeli presents herself as a role model to younger girls by sharing her hard work and knowing her craft versus to selling her body. Being a new artist in the United States does not intimidate this UK star; she is excited to introduce her music to new ears.
