#BRITS: EMELI SANDÉ WINS TOP HONOURS AT 2013 BRIT AWARDS
The 2013 BRIT Awards took place tonight at London’s 02 Arena and walking away with top honours tonight was last year’s Critics’ Choice Award Winner Emeli Sandé. The Singer/Songwriter won British Album of the Year for her Disc, Our Version of Events and also won British Female Solo Artist. Meanwhile, 25-year-old Folk Artist Ben Howard was also a big Winner, victorious in the categories of British Breakthrough Artist and British Male Solo Artist, a feat accomplished last year by Crossover Sensation, Ed Sheeran.
Surprising many, Lana Del Rey was awarded International Female Solo Artist defeating the likes of Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys and Rihanna. Meanwhile, Frank Ocean was awarded International Male Solo Artist.
22-year-old Folk Artist Tom Odell also was awarded what surely is predictive of future success as we can see from Sandé, the Critics’ Choice Award.
Hot on the heels of their four GRAMMY wins recently, The Black Keys were awarded International Group.

Early last year, I had the pleasure of meeting Sandé who was just visiting Toronto for the first time:
