The Euro invasion of the US charts has brought with it a host of acts hoping to extend their success narratives to an arena so notoriously hard to “break”.
Soulful songbird Emeli Sande is the latest to try and it seems her bid is off to the best of starts.
Released this week, the US version of her debut album ‘Our Version Of Events’ has rocketed into the top 5 of iTunes, while radio play of lead American single ‘Next To Me’ continues to soar on mainstream formats.
Wonder what the hype is about? Watch Emeli rock Good Morning America after the jump…
True to form, Emeli delivered another stunning showing.
In an era where models are parading as singers (and actually becoming successful), Sande serves as a refreshing reminder that actual talent and quality content can still be appreciated commercially. More power to her.
