Chart-topper Emeli Sande sings Christmas carols just as good as she sings her hits. The talented singer performed at a charity concert in aid of the Nordoff Robbins trust this week and wrapped up warm in some snug knitwear. All the best pop stars are sporting jumpers this season, it seems!
The carol service at St Luke’s church in Knightsbridge was incredibly star-studded with Hollywood stars doing the Christmas story readings. Firstly, Love Actually star Bill Nighy captivated the audience then Hangover star Bradley Cooper made us swoon. Girls, he is every bit as gorgeous in real-life and thankfully the beard isn’t as bad as it has been. However, Emeli was definitely the main attraction of the night.
Emeli thanked everyone for a fantastic year and it is truly amazing to think about just how much she did in 2012. From winning the Critic’s Choice award at The Brits, to releasing her album Our Version Of Events that became the fastest selling album of the year, it kept getting better and better. She performed at the Olympics opening and closing ceremonies and the recent Sports Personality Of The Year Awards and The Royal Albert Hall. But somehow she can work any audience and even when she is just singing for a few people at a carol service she puts energy into it.
After the show, I went back and listened to Our Version of Events again and I bet I’m not the only one. I can’t wait to see what she does in 2013. Happy Christmas everyone!
