From under a single spotlight, Emeli’s stunning vocal entranced the 80,000-strong crowd and brought a haunting calm to the ceremony.
Pictures flashed up were the dead relatives of members of the public who had been invited to send photos of loved ones to be remembered.
“I will never forget tonight. Thank you so much to Danny Boyle and all his team for this incredible experience. I am extremely proud and humbled to be part of the amazing ceremony which will allow the world to see some of the best up-and-coming and established talent the UK has produced.”-Emeli Sandé
