Enter here for your chance to win a pair of Bowers & Wilkins P5 Premium Headphones (valued at $300!) and a signed copy of Emeli Sandé's critically aclaimed debut album, "Our Version of Events."
Emeli Sandé's debut album is finally here in the US, and there's no better way to hear this amazing album than through these high quality B&W headphones!
While still a teenager, Emeli Sandé got her first big break as a singer and songwriter as she was named a contest winner for a BBC songwriter contest and record-deal offers soon started pouring in.
But instead of signing to a label, Sandé put her music career on hold and embarked on a six-year degree in medicine. Studying at Glasgow University, she specialized in clinical neuroscience because "I really like all the brain stuff."
As evidenced on her debut album Our Version of Events, she holds a deep affi nity for all the heart stuff and soul stuff as well.
Defying categorization, the singer/songwriter appeals to fans of pop, soul, dance and everything in between. She has already had an amazing 12 months on the UK Charts, with her debut album, "Our Version of Events," premiering at #1 in the UK in February. Emily has also had four singles from the album high up on the UK singles chart; while guest apparances on singles from four other artists have also reached the Top 10.
She has also been lauded as a songwriter, penning songs for UK artists as varied as Leona Lewis and Susan Boyle; while being identified by none other than Simon Cowell as his favorite songwriter of the moment.
Emeli has caught the eye of diverse titans of the music industry with early admirers including Coldplay and Alicia Keys. The former tapped her to open their UK and European dates in December as well as a leg of their upcoming North American summer tour; Keys was so impressed after she opened for her in the UK last summer that she co-wrote and produced the track "Hope" from "Our Version of Events" and has been collaborating with Sandé on her next album.
Keys has also been effusive in her praise, telling Dazed and Confused she was a magnificent new artist.
"I just love her style and her flow - super raw," she said.
Adele, upon viewing Sandés performance of the track "Next To Me" on Jools Holland's show, was compelled to Tweet, "How incredible is she?"
Sandé won the coveted BRIT Critics Choice Award for 2012 this past February, and in an unprecedented twist, was also nominated as a Breakthrough Artist at the BRITs as well.
