Emeli Sande - Proud Parents: Emeli Sande Deserved Brits Win, Say Mum And Dad

This will come as no extraordinary surprise but it seems that two of Emeli Sande’s biggest fans are her mum and dad. Sande’s parents were there at the Brits on Wedensday night, watching her take home two of the evening’s biggest awards, as well as closing the night’s entertainment with two performances. Diane and Joel were delighted by their daughter’s success and told the Scottish Daily Record that Emeli deserves all of her success.

“Emeli worked so hard at this and she deserves it. She never gave up and it has paid off,” Joel told the paper, shortly after Emeli landed her two awards. “Perhaps if she had got this last year it would have been far too early, so it might not have worked out so well for her. We are both so happy for her and are keen to party on the record label’s boat after the show.” Mum Diane was equally keem to party, though a little worried that they might be cramping her daughter’s style. “That’s if they let us old ones on,” she added.

Emeli’s parents weren’t the only ones welling with pride though. Back at her old school (Emeli is from Alford, Aberdeenshire), headteacher Moira Milne said “We are all so proud of her. Everyone is speaking about her performance – she looked and sounded fabulous. There is a great buzz about the school. “I know a few tears – happy tears – were shed by staff last night and pupils have said to me, ‘Wow, she is such an inspiration to us’… She is a very talented lady and it is a privilege for us to have such close links with her. We all pass on our congratulations to Emeli.”
