Adele Emeli Sandé is a Scottish soul and R&B recording artist and songwriter born to a Zambian father and English mother. Emeli became known to the world when she was featured on rapper Chipmunk's third single, "Diamond Rings". When Emeli was 11 she wrote a song for her schools talent show and thought she might be a songwriter someday. It is a good thing she had that mental picture in her mind at such a young age because the girl can write. Emeli has written songs for Alesha Dixon, Chipmunk, Professor Green, Devlin, Preeya Kalidas, Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle and Tinie Tempah. Simon Cowell revealed Emeli as his favorite song-writer at the moment. While I’m listening to her songs and writing this I have to agree she is one of my favorites now. Emeli has depth in her songwriting and she speaks so many relatable truths in her songs. Emeli first solo single was released on 14 August 2011 that was "Heaven" from the “Our Version of Events” album. The other songs I like are “Suitcase”, “Next To Me”, Maybe”, “Daddy Feat Naughty Boy”, “My kind of Love”, “River”, “Hope”, “Where I Sleep”, “Clown” and “Read All About it”. Emeli album “Our Version of Events” was released on June 5, 2012. It is a soulful amazing album. I truly enjoy hearing a singer that writes her own music and also has such a powerful voice and lyrics to match. Tune into Streetwise Radio and listen to Emeli Sande`.
