In 2010 Emeli signed a record deal with EMI Music Publishing and her debut album Our Version of Events is planned to be released in February 2012.
Listen to Emeli‘s first solo single, Heaven :
Heaven reached 2 on the official UK Singles chart. What strikes first in this song is Emeli‘s beautiful, clear voice and a great composition. It plays on the early 90’s feel and somehow breathes fresh air into the charts. Surely, Emeli Sandé is the one to watch in 2012.
