The portrait is of singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé who had agreed to sit for a portrait shortly after the release of her first UK single, ‘Heaven’, which marked the turning point in her career. Sandé performed at the opening ceremony of London 2012 Olympic Games and has won three Brit Awards. The opening lyrics of ‘Heaven’ are inscribed on the painting in her own hand.
