Emeli Sandé Supporting the Future of Music

Gucci-Press-Conference

“I hope that we still have a dream. I’m hoping that change isn’t hopeless I’m hoping to start it with me” Emeli Sandé has captured the hearts of all of us and her songs speak so powerfully.

“It’s crucial that young people today have the chance to express themselves through music and are given opportunities to do so. Projects like this make music available to everyone; disadvantaged youths in particular will be able to tell their story and get their voices heard. These are issues that are close to my heart, so I’m really proud to be part of it.”
– Emeli Sandé, Singer, Songwriter superstar and winner of Female and Best British Artist of the year at the 2013 Brit Awards
