Emeli Sande` “Next to You” Performance
Emeli Sande` is one of the UK’s most popular performers. She is a 25-year-old singer and songwriter originally from Scotland. Her hit songs include “Heaven” and “Diamond Rings” featuring rapper Chipmunk. Emeli has also written songs for several other artists, including Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole and Tinie Tempah.
Emeli is now conquering the United States in promotion of her new album, Our Version of Events. She joined Kelly and Neil today to sing a song from the album, “Next to You,” for the “Live With Kelly” audience. The album has already gone number one in the UK, and everyone got to see why! Emeli has a very high, cool voice, and an appealing exotic sound.

When she finished singing, Neil and Kelly came over to compliment her talents. Neil joked, “it’s too early for you to be singing those notes!” Kelly revealed that, in addition to being a gifted performer, Emeli also has a degree in neuroscience from the University of Glasgow. If you’re wondering if she will give up all the fame to become a doctor, though, that’s probably unlikely. Kelly asked Emeli which is more exhausting, medicine or singing, and Emeli replied that she enjoys singing much more than sitting in the library.
This summer, Emeli will be returning to the US in order to embark on the “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” tour with Coldplay. The tour will also feature Swedish pop singer Robyn, and kicks off in July.
Kelly pointed out that Emeli has often been compared to Adele in the press. This is ironic because Emeli’s first name actually is Adele. In order to not be confused with the mega-star, Emeli now goes by her middle name. She noted that it is extra interesting, because ‘Adele’ is not such a common name.
Emeli Sande’s new album is called Our Version of Events, and you can catch her on tour with Coldplay this summer all around the US.
