Emeli Sande's Gig Proceeds Going to the Prince's Trust

Emeli Sandé's success has grown exponentially over the past twelve months, from being a relatively unknown singer-songwriter, working in the relative dark background of other stars, to being an internationally adored artist. 

Before finding fame she had written songs for Susan Boyle, Cheryl Cole, Tinie Tempah and Leona Lewis. 2012, however, has been her year and she's already had two UK No #1 singles, her album hit the top-spot, she performed at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics, she got married and now she's begun rounding the year off with a sold-out gig at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Sandé knows how far she's come and told the crowd, "I'm so happy to be here and you sold out this venue this is my wildest dream come true," reported the Huffington Post. 

She dedicated much of the show to friends and family, but also to The Prince's Trust, to which "My Kind of Love" was devoted. She also said that the proceeds of the gig would be going to this charity, which is fitting in a year that has also been important for the monarchy. Her performances were mature, as are her lyrics, and commenting on her song 'Clown' she said, "The lyrics of this song are so important to me... No matter how kind you are to people someone is always looking for a clown and sometimes you can be that clown." 

Sandé calibre clearly lends itself to success, although her enormous year of success would be difficult to top at all, if there's anyone can do it, it'll be Sandé herself.
