Emeli Sande 'Next To Me' Music Video
Born in Scotland, Emeli has recorded R&B and soul music in the past, having featured on rapper Chipmunk's single "Diamond Rings". She has gained public attention for her songwriting, having written recordings for big name artists including Cher Lloyd, Susan Boyle, Cheryl Cole and Tinie Tempah. She has even been a favourite songwriter for Simon Cowell.
"Next To Me" is a great song to showcase the vocal talent of this rising star who received the Brits Critics Choice Award last year (shown in the photo above).
The music video for "Next To Me" shows Emeli sitting at a piano in a huge empty warehouse. Accompanying her is a drummer seated nearby. The song begins with the first few bars of the tune on the piano, and the drummer joins in. Emeli sings, "You won't find him drinkin' at the tables..." along with numerous other positive traits of the man in her life. She continues to describe all the great things about him, and especially the most important aspect that, "you'll find him next to me".
It is a song where Emeli sings the praises of her one and only, and most importantly that he is "next to me".
She has an incredible voice that reaches the high notes with ease, but she is just as comfortable in the lower vocal regions. And not only can Emeli sing, she plays the piano with style. For a brief section in the clip, she shows off her rhythm as she moves around the warehouse with a tambourine. Again, she does it with class.
The "Next To Me" video shows a performance of Emeli Sande singing her song with the greatest of ease. She is one talented singer.
