Emeli is an inspiring music star
COMMENT NEWS: Singer goes back to her roots – Pages 12 & 13
IT IS great to see Emeli Sande paying tribute to her Northeast roots as she stands on the brink of stardom. The singer’s return to her old school, Alford Academy, was more than just a meet-andgreet and a photo opportunity. Emeli delivered an inspiring message to young people that working hard to follow your dream can pay off, no matter who you are or where you come from. And she took the time to thank the former teachers who set her on the road to success. It is clear that Emeli is not only a huge talent, but also a great ambassador for the North-east. Here’s hoping she clinches the coveted number one spot with her debut single, Heaven.
