An Evening with Emeli Sandé

The powerful singer marks a new album and a brand new chapter as she returns to Royal Festival Hall.

She’s back and stronger with a fearless sound born out of a journey of self-discovery.

Her new album, Real Life, reaches for the sound of power – the power of freedom, the power of growth, and the power of authenticity.

It emerges from the power of understanding who you are, and of finally being able to give to others what you’ve learned for yourself.

Over the past five years, she says, she’s built self-esteem that hadn’t been there before.

Her confidence was lacking, despite her previous two albums and her EP garnering the sort of critical acclaim that money couldn’t buy.

‘If you get famous so young, that becomes who you are and what you believe is your worth, and then you kind of forget that these songs are coming from you.’

Sandé is an artist who can finally say that she’s the best version of herself she’s ever been.
