Aberdeenshire born singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé will take to the stage in Aberdeen’s Music Hall tomorrow evening.

The 24-year-old was originally scheduled to play the city centre venue last year but had to postpone when she was asked by Coldplay to perform with them on their European tour.

The Alford born artist has won the Brits Critics Choice award, 2012 which rewards up-and-coming talent. Previous winners of the critics choice award include Adele, and Florence And The Machine.

Sandé who gave up studying medicine at the University of Glasgow to pursue her career in music, has already achieved top ten hits with solo singles Heaven and Daddy.

She also appeared on Professor Green’s number one hit Read All About It, and is currently supporting Coldplay on their European tour.

She was a fourth year medical student in Glasgow when, while vacuuming her bedroom, she wrote the hook for a song called Diamond Rings and gave it to rapper Chipmunk.

Released as a single, with Sandé on guest vocals, it became a top 10 hit and EMI handed her a publishing deal. She has written for a number of artists, including Cher Lloyd, Susan Boyle and Tinie Tempah.

Sandé has also been described by Simon Cowell as “his favourite songwriter at the minute”.
