Emeli Sandé Has Hopes To Work With Beyoncé And Nicki Minaj
Emeli Sandé has been making waves across the UK since 2011, but the singer is hoping to make even bigger waves across the Atlantic this year. As an experienced songwriter, the Scottish artist has already written for stars such as Alicia Keys, which has supplied her with some handy contacts...
Emeli spoke to The Daily Record about her dream collaborations: "There are lots of people I would like to work with, so hopefully I can clear some time. The biggest thrill would be to work with someone like Stevie Wonder – if I could write a song for him, it would be a dream come true. I'd love to continue working with Alicia and I'd love to work for Nicki Minaj. That would be incredible! I'd love to work with Beyoncé. Her voice is unparalleled."
It seems Beyoncé would be her top choice, as she goes on to say: "She [Beyoncé] can do anything with her voice and it is a great pleasure when you work with someone that shows their voice so well."
Meanwhile, the singer is part of an exciting competition that could give you the chance to perform a duet with her! The competition, 'Something For The Fans', is presented by Mastercard in connection to the upcoming BRIT Awards.
Emeli gushed about the competition: “Singing a duet is such an exciting experience. It’s great to be able to share that experience with one of my fans. To be able to sing with someone that has supported me is such an exciting opportunity. I can’t wait to meet them.”
