Soul-stuffed Scottish singer Emeli Sandé seems to embody true musical art.
This girl is what contemporary singers should aspire to be; she's got unique, interesting, and technically en-pointe vocals, she writes thoughtful, lyrically rich songs (more like poems set to music), and she actually seems to care more about the musical artform, than how many Twitter followers she's got, or who she's seen partying with at night.
Indulge in Emeli's soothing, yet powerful Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall, recorded in ONE take (above) and let her voice subtly tickle your spine.
We still can't fathom WHY NBC cut out Emeli's raved-about performance from the Olympic opening ceremony…
But then again, we don't understand how NBC has so sublimely botched everything related to the 2012 Olympic games!
