Emeli is a three-time BRIT Award winner whose debut album "Our Version of Events" was the best-selling album of 2012 in the UK and remains the top seller to date in 2013. Her latest single, "Next To Me," is a multi-format smash hit and the video has reached 30 million views as a mainstay on channels including VH1 and BET. Emeli's critical acclaim is unanimous, landing her on many "Best Of" lists, including The New York Times where revered critic Jon Caramanica placed her at number one on his 2012 year-end Top 10 round-up. High-profile television programs such as "Ellen," "Good Morning America," "The Today Show," "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Late Show with David Letterman" have all invited the powerhouse songstress to perform, with more on deck. Emeli will return to the U.S. for a much-anticipated headline tour starting July 2, including a stop at Lollapalooza on August 2.
