Emeli Sande And Alicia Keys Work On Songs Together

14 November 2011, 10:48

The 'Read All About It' singer has been working with her teen idol on several new tracks.

Emeli Sande says she fulfilled one of her childhood dreams recently after getting to write several songs with Alicia Keys.

The 'Heaven' vocalist has spent time working on new material with the American singer and admitted she had always hoped for the opportunity to collaborate with her.

"At the beginning of this year, I wrote on the board in my room the names of people I wanted to work with," Emeli told The Sun. "And on the top of that list was Alicia Keys.

"I was quite nervous to meet Alicia but she's a very cool girl, very humble. She's no diva and super intelligent."

Emeli explained their priority had been to "write great songs", and confirmed that they eventually completed work on two tracks called "Hope" and "One Hundred and One".

She added: They're really beautiful songs and we're very like-minded."

The 'Heaven' singer will perform on the second day of this year's Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball on 4th December alongside Jessie J, JLS, One Direction, The Saturdays and Wretch 32.

Emeli releases second solo single 'Daddy' on 27th November and debut album 'Out Version of Events' will follow on 6th February, 2012.
