23 May 2013

International distributor DCD Rights is thrilled to announce worldwide sales of Emeli Sandé’s triumphant concert Live at the Royal Albert Hall to PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) for North America, Globosat for Brazil, DIRECTV for Latin America, Phoenix Satellite Television for Hong Kong and YLE for Finland.

The news comes as Emeli Sandé cemented herself as one of Britain’s most respected female artists after she was honoured twice at the last week’s Ivor Novello Awards in London. She won Best Song Musically and Lyrically – one of the ceremony’s most prestigious honours – for her hit Next To Me. She also won Music Most Performed work for the track.

26-year-old Sandé achieved world fame after her stunning performances at the 2012 Olympics. She now is one of the UK’s top selling artists, and double Brit Award 2013 winner for British female and British album.

Live at the Royal Albert Hall (1×60’ / 1×100’) showcases Emeli’s incredible voice in front of a captivated crowd at the iconic venue. The concert includes hit tracks ‘Next To Me’, ‘My Kind Of Love’ and ‘Heaven’ and guest performances from Labrinth and Professor Green.

Nicky Davies Williams, CEO, DCD Rights, said: “Emeli Sandé’s talent as a songwriter and charisma as a live performer have captivated audiences around the world during her London Olympic ceremonies performances. These first sales reflect the artist’s truly global appeal and this epic concert is arguably one of her finest filmed performances to date.”

In the last three decades DCD Rights have sold rights to the world’s biggest selling acts from Hendrix, Bowie, McCartney and Bob Marley to Amy Winehouse, Beyonce and Christina Aguilera.
