Emeli Sande finds it ''amazing'' to look back on how far she's come since writing her debut album.
Emeli Sande finds it ''amazing'' to think about her global success.
The 27-year-old singer recently looked back on the original lyrics to her hit single 'Next to Me' and still can't believe how far she's come since she penned the track, which was released two years ago.
She said: ''''I was in the studio a couple of days ago with Craze & Hoax, the guy I wrote 'Next to Me' with, and he was like 'Oh look, I have the piece of paper you wrote 'Next to Me' on, so it has like 'Next to me, whoo-hoo' verse one, and everything's crossed out, things I wanted to say at first.
''Seeing things like that make it real, we put that song down in his bedroom and to know it went around the world is such an amazing feeling.''
Emeli admitted growing up in Scotland, getting her big break to be a singer seemed like a ''fantasy''.
She said: ''It's almost like this fantasy industry, I was up in Aberdeenshire and really wanted to sing but it was about making that link, how do you get into that London world, because that's where all the labels are and it's important to get your stuff heard.''
Last week, the singer visited Glasgow to give a masterclass to aspiring songwriters and admitted she would have loved to have attended something similar when she was beginning her career.
She said: ''I would have appreciated something like this, to get some advice how do you make those steps and let people hear what you're doing.''
