Scottish songstress Emeli Sande pays tribute to her fellow Brits in Coldplay with a beautifully sung acoustic cover of the band’s Mylo Xyloto single “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.” Filmed in one shot, the “My Kind Of Love” artist’s vulnerability shines through in this stripped down performance, which should be all the explanation you need of why she made our coveted list of the Top 12 Women About To Pop In 2012.

Emeli’s song choice is more than appropriate, being that she’s currently opening for Coldplay on the group’s North American tour. (She also traveled with them on their 2011 European tour.)

Sande’s debut LP Our Version Of Events is out now. [Via Huffington Post]
