Some Sunday Soul
This artist got a name check last week and I suspect that this may be one which divides opinion.
Emeli Sandé was born in Sunderland but moved to Alford in Aberdeenshire aged 4 making her pretty much Scottish.
In 2012 with the release of Our Version of Events she was the biggest musical star in the UK.
She had the best selling album of the year out selling Adele. You would however be technically correct in saying that Adele had the best seller as she was in fact born Adele Emily Sandé
She performed at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics and won two Brit Awards in 2013.She also had the ultimate accolade in having her songs murdered by a myriad of X-Factor wanabees.
Since then nothing.
I bought the album for a quid in a charity shop in St Andrews when she was at the height of her fame to see what all the fuss was about.Pleasant enough but I can't say I play it all that often if at all.
