Emeli Sande's Music Memory
Mariah Carey - Hero
“My dad introduced me to Mariah Carey and her music when I was about seven years old. I remember this song specifically really giving me strength and empowering me to be who I was. I grew up in Scotland, I loved growing up there but I did feel very different being the only black person in school. Just having that encouragement, Mariah Carey often talks about being mixed race, so for me it was having someone who understood. Her voice cuts through so much that it feels like she is speaking to you.”
