Best female lyricist in the industry today, hands down. Emeli Sande is a sophisticated lyrical powerhouse. She is one of the few artists that can write directly from her heart and still have the ability to connect with each and every listener. Gaining attention from the one and only Alicia Keys, Emeli was featured as co-writer for two songs featured on Alicia’s newest album, “Girl on Fire”. The combination of Emeli’s amazing lyrics and her strong vocal presence makes her one of my favorite female artists of all time! I strongly encourage all viewers to take a look at Emeli’s material even beyond this post. Enjoy!
