Fesh off of performing at the opening & closing ceremonies of the Olympics, Emeli Sande will be performing on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, this coming Wednesday (8/22), and CraveOnline wants to send you!
Since emerging onto the music scene, Emeli Sande has garnered high praises from everyone from Simon Cowell to Adele and Alicia Keys. Her debut album Our Version of Events was released in the US on June 5th via Capitol Records and certified double-platinum in the UK, while remaining in the Top 10 on the British album chart since its No. 1 debut in late February.
Most recently, Emeli finished up a stint of performances, opening for Coldplay on their sold-out US tour. In September, Emeli will perform one night of the month-long iTunes Festival taking place at the Roundhouse in Camden, London, along with Usher, Jack White, Norah Jones, One Direction, and others. Emeli is also penning songs for Alicia Keys' upcoming fifth studio album, slated for release later this year.
