Sande's star burns bright.
EMELI SANDE HMV, Glasgow, February 15 It's early days, but as she performed a handful of songs at Glasgow's HMV store, Emeli Sande's presence was that of a star, rather than a star in the making.
With her debut album, Our Version Of Events, released this week, this was a chance to sign copies for 400 fans in the city where she studied neuroscience and to show off tracks, Suitcase and Hope, as well as three hit singles - Heaven, Daddy and Next To Me.
Just days before she collects the Critics' Choice award at the Brits, Emeli's serene nature let her voice and the songs do the talking.
Accompanied by just an acoustic guitar, she thanked the crowd who had made it along and said how nice it was to be back in Glasgow.
One thing's for sure, it'll be a long time before Emeli plays such an intimate show again.
