Such a soulful voice!
With a hint of raspiness in her vocal performance, Jess Glynne has a unique and memorable voice, and it's one she's put to good use in her new album I Cry When I Laugh!

Now, the singer — who went platinum with her album in just ten weeks in the United Kingdom — is taking her talents stateside with a brand new video for her single Take Me Home (above) AND a North American Tour beginning in January!
Speaking about the inspiration behind Take Me Home, Jess was honest about how emotional she gets in the video:
"This is a song about the need to have someone who cares when you are at your most vulnerable. It's a very emotional song for me and I have to admit it brings me to tears when I sing it live or when I made the video with Declan (Whitebloom). I hope it makes people realize that they should reach out to others at a time of need."
So touching and poignant! And you can really feel the raw energy and emotion come across in the really simple but effective video!
