Emeli Sande On Stephen Lawrence Memorial Concert – “Doreen's Story Inspired Me Greatly”


Emeli Sande

Amongst the myriad stars handpicked to perform at the Stephen Lawrence memorial concert, which marks twenty years since his tragic and racially motivated murder, is Emeli Sande, and the singer has opened up about the charity set to benefit from the gig.

"It's such an important charity and the work (that) Doreen is doing, is fantastic. Doreen's story inspired me greatly. It shows if you stand strong you can made a difference and make a change, she explained while speaking at the line-up announcement at Abbey Road Studios in London. "I was quite young when it happened but coming from a mixed-race family it was a big issue that we spoke about, and (we also spoke about) the issues you face being mixed race and this being something that happened in our country." Lawrence’s murder shocked the nation, and sparked an inquiry into the metropolitan police force, which was labelled as inherently racist as a result. Horrific as his death was, it raised awareness of racism in the U.K, and the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust – founded and chaired by his mother Doreen – continues to do great work.

Further special guests will accompany Sande, like Rizzle Kicks, Labrinth, Jamie Cullum and Soul II Soul, with more to be announced over the coming weeks. Tickets for the event will go on sale on Friday 21 June, with the actual event taking place at London's O2 arena on 29 September.

Excitement mounts as a sampler for the Great Gatsby soundtrack has been released online. Fans of Jay Z and Beyonce may find themselves disappointed though, as neither of their tracks are included on the sampler.

A press release revealed some of the treats that are in store and the detail of the work that went into compiling the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann’s reimagining of F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, set in 1922. “Jay Z (with collaborator and the film’s executive music consultant Jeymes Samuel) has worked with Luhrmann and his team on the project over the past two years, translating the Jazz Age sensibility of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel into the musical equivalents of our own times, through the blending of hip-hop, traditional jazz and other contemporary musical textures,” the press release reveals.

The sampler does contain snippets of other tracks from the soundtrack, including Emeli Sande’s re-working of Beyonce’s Crazy In Love (with the Bryan Ferry Orchestra), Together by The XX and ‘Young and Beautiful’ by Lana Del Rey
