Scottish singing sensation Emeli Sande is set to visit Colston Hall Bristol in 2013 as part of a UK tour.
Described by Simon Cowell as ‘his favourite songwriter at the minute’, Emeli Sande has written for a number of artists, including Cher Lloyd, Parade, Susan Boyle, Gabrielle, Preeya Kalidas, Leona Lewis, Alesha Dixon, Cheryl Cole, Tinie Tempah, and Mutya Keisha Siobhan.
Sande first became known to the public eye after she featured on the track Diamond Rings by the rapper Chipmunk back in 2009.
The following year she appeared on Never Be Your Woman by the rapper Wiley, which became a top ten hit.
Since then, she has enjoyed two number-one singles with Read All About It and Next to Me.
Her album, Our Version of Events, peaked at number one in the UK, soon after its release in February 2012.
It recently overtook Adele’s 21 as the UK’s top selling album of 2012, shifting around 700,000 copies across the country.
This summer she was seen performing in both the Opening and Closing ceremonies of the London Olympics.
Emeli Sande hits Colston Hall Bristol on April 6, 2013. Tickets go on sale at 9am on October 26, 2012.
