The 'Next To Me' singer hints that she wants to combine her interests in music and medicine.

Emeli Sande says she would consider a career move into music therapy in the future if she feels like having a change of direction.

The 'Clown' singer previously studied neuroscience at university before dropping out to pursue a career in music full-time, and says she still often thinks about going back into medicine.

"One day I can see myself doing music therapy," Emeli revealed to USA Today this week. "That would be a nice medium."

The 'Beneath Your Beautiful' singer has also said she is feeling the pressure after musical legend Elton John spoke highly of her talent as a singer, and says she wants to make sure she continues to impress the 'Crocodile Rock' star.

"I'm overwhelmed that a legend has such respect for my music," she added. "I hope I don't let him down."

May has already been a hugely successful month for the Scottish singer-songwriter after she picked up two awards at the Ivor Novellos 2013 last week, Best Song Musically and Lyrically and Most Performed Work both for her hit 'Next To Me'.

Emeli Sande also recorded a cover version of Beyonce's hit 'Crazy In Love' for the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
