Listen Up - emeli Sande
Emeli Sande is probably the number one biggest name to watch in 2012. She appeared only a few years ago, and since then has made a name for herself by being featured on quite a few songs from prominent British acts.
I first fell in love with Ms. Sande (born Adele Emeli Sande, but I don’t think any singer can ever use the name Adele in any context ever again) last year when she released her debut solo single, “Heaven”. The song is spectacular, and instantly shows off all of her talents. The song went to #2 in the UK (and of course got zero attention in the US).
Since then, she has released two more singles, both as wonderful as the last. Her debut full length comes out in February in the UK, and I am happy to say that it will be released and promoted in the US at some point later this year.
Hopefully some people will really pick up on her.
Here is why you should love her:
If you have really been paying attention, I have mentioned this song before…
Even better knews! Sande has already won a BRIT Award for the Critics Choice for this year. Isn’t that wonderful for her?
Yes, it is. Very much. Champagne all around.
