This is one of the most beautiful songs of the year in my opinion. Emeli’s got such a lovely, expressive voice that leaving her out of my list would be a big crime. The simple background piano melody makes this song even more powerful. A grand orchestra is impressive and all, but an abundance of different sounds and melodies tends to overpower a singer’s voice. That’s why it takes a really great voice to perform solo in an opera. No wonder then that this simple song captured my heart, no?
Song of the week is:
Emeli Sandé – Read All About It (part III)
