Emeli Sande has one of those unique sounds to her voice. When I first heard of her music, at the time she was still up and coming, I thought there was something special and that one day, she’ll be on the charts. I’m happy she made it! (Not that the music on the charts specifies good music, it’s quite the opposite nowadays.) Over these past few weeks, this song has been on my playlist quite a lot.
Emeli has been in the background writing for music for the likes of Cher Lloyd, Alesha Dixon, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole, Tinieh Tempah and Mutya Keish Siobhan (formerly known as Sugababes). Although she was raised in Scotland, she is of Zambian-English descent. Hence her intriguing looks.
Her debut album Our Version of Events was released early February 2012.
