Biography

Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland (2009 – present)

Adele Emeli Sandé (born 10 March 1987: Sunderland, England and raised in Alford, Aberdeenshire, Scotland) known by her stage name Emeli Sandé, is a soul and R&B recording artist and songwriter signed to Virgin Records.

Sandé made her singing career debut in 2009 after appearing on the track she wrote for Chipmunk’s first debut single, “Diamond Rings”. The single charted at No. 6 on the UK Singles Charts, making it Chipmunk and Sandé’s first ever Top 10 Hit. She later appeared on another single singing guest vocals, after collaborating with Wiley on his comeback single “Never Be Your Woman”, the single charted at number-eight on the UK Singles Charts becoming Sandé’s second consecutive Top 10 Single.
Sandé decided against using the name Adele Sandé, due to Adele’s growing success, so used her middle name instead. She revealed: “I changed it as soon as Adele came out. I just thought, ‘You’ve kind of taken the now’, so I went with my middle name. She was just getting bigger and bigger, so I thought I just really need it.”

A former medical student, Sandé appeared as a guest vocalist on Professor Green’s 2011 UK #1 single Read All About It and soon went on to achieve her own chart success with her first solo release Heaven, which debuted in the UK Singles Chart at #2. Her debut album Our Version of Events was released on 12th February 2012. The album includes the singles Next to Me, Daddy and My Kind of Love.
