What a Voice!

Her debut album Our Version of Events was an instant hit of 2012, selling over two million copies in the British Isles alone. It featured the hits Heaven, Next to Me and Read All About It. Emeli Sandé wrote her first song when she was just eleven years old, and she soon started entering music competitions. The singer’s first name is Adele, but her namesake’s commercial success meant she decided to use her middle name instead to avoid confusion.

We had to wait almost five years for her follow-up album Long Live the Angels. In the intervening years, she got a degree in neuroscience, and she got married and divorced. Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that the single promoting her second album, Hurts, is about heartache and the sorrow of loss, as well as the joy of redemption. “The entire album is about me not holding back and not censoring myself,” she said in an interview. Musically speaking, the album marks Sandé’s return to her roots in soul and R&B, with her voice always at the centre. Vocally she really belts it out.

The winner of the Brit Award for Best Female Solo Artist in 2017 performs at ICE Kraków on 22 February. It will be the Scottish singer’s first appearance in Poland. (Artur Jackowski, "Karnet" magazine)
