[Hot Video Alert] Emeli Sandé - My Kind Of Love
"During my time studying medicine, I found it hard to write, but one of the things that inspired me were the patients and the interaction that they had with their loved ones during their time of illness. When people arrived at the hospital, money and status became irrelevant and only health mattered, which sparked an honesty between people which was amazing. This interaction, declaration of support and love, was the inspiration for 'My Kind of Love' and something I wanted to try and portray in this video."Emeli Sandé released her official first U.S. single, "Next To Me," on April 17th. Her debut album, Our Version of Events, released abroad back in February, is scheduled for release here in America on June 5th through Capitol Records. The U.S. version of the album will feature a brand new track called "Wonder," a collaboration with Naughty Boy not available on the album's international release. Sandé is in the midst of promoting her single and album here in America, including her recent U.S. television debut on TBS's Conan (April 19th). Upcoming performances include BET's 106 & Park on April 23rd, VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live on April 25th and Rachael Ray the week of May 14th. In addition, Sandé can be seen on MySpace Music's 'One-Two-Watch' feature HERE, offering viewers a look at her rise to fame in the UK and her first ever live U.S. gig.
