In need of some powerful and thoughtful female vocalists? Come and see Emeli Sandé and Skylar Grey perform together for one night at Key Club in Los Angeles.
In Emeli Sandé’s young career, she has written music for the likes of Rhianna, Susan Boyle, Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis, and many others. The R&B singer/songwriter broke onto the pop music scene when she was featured on rapper Chipmunk’s “Diamond Rings,” a 2009 top ten single on the UK singles chart. The following year, she was featured on another top ten hit, “Never Be Your Woman” by rapper Wiley.
By 2012, Sandé had won the Brit Awards Critics’ Choice Award, and Simon Cowell called her “his favorite songwriter of the minute.” Emeli Sandé performances also caught the eyes and ears of the likes of Alisha Keys, who called Sandé “a magnificent new artist.”
Sandé’s debut solo album, Our Version of Events, was released in 2012 and received critical acclaim and commercial success. The singles “Heaven” and “Next to Me” climbed charts and dominated the radio waves in the UK. Sandé performed Henry Francis Lyte’s “Abide with Me” at the opening ceremony of London’s 2012 Summer Olympics, and then her own “Read All About It” at the closing ceremonies.
