Song of the Day, March 2: Highs & Lows by Emeli Sandé

sandehighslowsToday’s song is a celebration of life. Emeli Sandé’s magnificent second album explores the challenges of life and live in a diverse musical setting. The penultimate track is one of the finest. Highs & Lows is a joyous song, with a choir supporting Sandé’s amazing vocals. It’s a smart exploration of the tribulations of everyday life and the value of having a partner on the journey.

HappyCouple5x7This is the perfect song to celebrate the 15th anniversary of my wedding to my wonderful husband, Michael. We’ve seen a lot of highs and lows together, and it’s all been better having him by my side.

Enjoy this wonderful song today.

BONUS: This live version filmed for Later… With Jools Holland shows off Sandé’s real vocal power.
