Emeli Sandé Performs on ‘Today’ Show

Emeli Sandé has already conquered the U.K. and now she plans to leave her mark on America. The Scottish singer-songwriter, who’s written for Alicia Keys and Rihanna, brought her talent across the pond to the “Today” show during her U.S. promo tour. She spoke to Matt Lauer about winning over a new audience and performed two songs off her acclaimed debut Our Version of Events.

“It’s just that real, raw excitement at the beginning when people have just found you as an artist. I love that,” said the 25-year-old Emeli, who performed at the London Olympics. “It’s a brand new challenge for me and I’m really enjoying it.”

Watch Emeli invade U.S. television with “Next to Me” and “My Kind of Love.”
