Emeli Sande already gave our tear ducts a workout with her moving performance of “Next To Me” on Conan (her US television debut), and now the UK artist is getting us even more emotional with her video for “My Kind Of Love”. In the vid, Emeli visits a sick friend in the hospital, and decides to take her out on the town to boost her morale, if not her health. The concept was actually inspired by the period of time Sande was a med student. “One of the things that inspired me were the patients and the interaction that they had with their loved ones during their time of illness,” she said. “When people arrived at the hospital, money and status became irrelevant and only health mattered, which sparked an honesty between people which was amazing. This interaction, declaration of support and love, was the inspiration for ‘My Kind of Love’ and something I wanted to try and portray in this video.” Emeli’s debut LP, Our Version Of Events, drops June 5.
