Emeli always had her heart set on music, but decided not to pursue her chosen career until she completed her medicine degree at the University of Glasgow.
Emeli released her debut single 'Heaven' in 2011. The track has been compared to Massive Attack's 'Unfinished Symphony'.
Emeli enjoyed her first taste of success when she featured on Chipmunk's debut single, 'Diamond Rings'. The star has also written songs for Cher Lloyd, Cheryl Cole, and Tinie Tempah.
