Emeli Sande performs “My Kind of Love” for Radio 1’s Festive Festival [Video]


Way back in November last year, I saw Emeli Sande perform live on the last leg of her UK tour. It was an outstanding gig, full of highlights, but one song, “My Kind of Love”, stood out to me amongst the wealth of new material she performed that night. It was a monster of a pop-R&B song with a rousing chorus. A surefire smash, lighters-in-the-air, epic pop record that blew me, and the rest of the Koko crowd that night, away.

I spent the next couple of weeks moping at the prospect of having to wait for the release of Emeli’s album Our Version of Events to hear the track again, so it was with genuine delight that I discovered that she performed “My Kind of Love” at BBC Radio 1’s pre-Christmas Festive Festival, where she rocked Maida Vale alongside Dot Rotten, TEED, Jakwob and more. I’ve been living with it for the last couple of weeks, playing it on repeat for hours on end, but having ridden that initial wave of selfishness, I’m now ready to share it with you all. Check out the video below.
