Emeli Sandé has made her mark as an artist, becoming the top selling musician in the UK for all of 2012, but she started her career in the same way that luminaries like Carole King did: as a songwriter.
When Emeli Sandé accepted her second BRIT Award for Best Album on Wednesday, February 20, the Scottish singer said she was a “very unlikely pop star.”
The ceremony also included performances from One Direction, Emeli Sande, Ed Sheeran, the Spice Girls, George Michael and a symphony of British music.
