Emeli Sandé – Music Life

Emeli Sandé is an R&B and soul UK singer with fabulous voice and talent. She started her music career as a featured artist, partnering with the rappers Chipmunk and Wiley.

So far the singer has two albums in her career:

Our Version of Events

Emeli released her first single “Heaven” and then the second ”Daddy”, but the first single ranked as number one was “Read All About It.” The singer admits that her colleagues Alicia Keys and Naughty Boy helped with creating the album. She believes that the record was successful because it contains real emotions with it. All the singles from the collection are  Sandé’s signature, but some of these were ranked as number one in the UK, such as ”My kind of love”, “Read All About It,” and “Beneath Your Beautiful.” The album reached one million sales as being the best-selling album in 2012.

Long Live the Angels

Long Live the Angels is the second album Emeli recorded. It was released in 2016, and reached number 2 on the UK album chart. In 2017, she won the Brit Award for Best British Female Solo Artist. This album shows a different part of Emeli Sandé, the structure of the songs is delicate and not complicated with a lot of instrumentals apart from the piano and the guitar. We can hear her voice in an apparent dynamic. The lead single from the album is ”Hurt” representing all the feelings the musician kept genuinely in her heart until she revealed it with this song.

Live Appearances

Emeli performed on some of the most significant arenas in the UK. Her live appearances on stage were honored with two awards in 2013: Best British Female Solo Artist and British Album of the Year.

The singer is also famous for her charity acting, awarded for her kindness as a member of various organizations supporting children, raising awareness for breast cancer, Ebola crisis, and others.

Emeli Sandé loves to perform live. She organized two tours supporting her two albums. The first tour ”Our Version of Events Tour’’ took place in five continents from 2011 till 2013. She always included acoustic sound in her live appearances, which expressed her respect for the fans that came to listen to her on the live shows.

The second tour was ‘’Long Live the Angels Tour’’ in 2016. Emeli performed live in 40 cities. There was only one short show in England when the singer performed only an hour instead of two hours, but no one commented on the reason why.

Emeli Sandé is well-known and popular with her R&B, soul and gospel style of singing. Her music gets to your heart very deeply because you could fee every word of the songs as if you have experienced this feeling behind the words. Her bright and dynamic voice is making her different and very easy to recognize. What makes her special is also her kindness and willingness to support charity organizations all over the world emotionally and materially.
