Emeli Sandé’s Our Version of Events has been a constant fixture in the iPod for weeks now. The beauty of her voice matches her incredible songwriting that has the power to make random strangers cry for no other reason than her magical sound. As our June YOK artist we’re happy to share some of our favorite cuts from the album like “Next to Me” or style photos that show her boisterous personality. Today we gift you with her cover of Blur’s “Country House.”
With her ability to maneuver supremely high notes or low whispers, Sandé turns the alternative rock group Blur’s “Country House” into a soft melody. By managing not to sound like a singer covering another group’s song, she makes the song her own in a way unique to her. Sande’s talent, whether singing her own songs or belting covers of other artists, is the exactly what makes her a No. 1 artist in the UK and a rising star stateside.
