Emeli Sandé to Perform at Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party
"Emeli Sandé's album, 'Our Version of Events,' is a true work of art and a favorite of mine," said Founder Sir Elton John. "When she is on stage, you can feel her passion for music and the heart that goes into her lyrics. I can't wait to introduce Emeli to my guests and experience her live performance together. I predict that by next year she will be a multi-Grammy Award winner."
Sandé leads the 2013 BRIT Award nominations with four nods, including Best Female Solo Artist, Album of the Year and two for Best Single.

Sandé has also enjoyed international success, selling 2.5 million copies and achieving Gold and Platinum status in France, Italy, Australia, Ireland, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Switzerland.
