MOBO’s add Professor Green & Emeli Sande to line up

MOBO Awards 2011: Glittering Line-Up Set To Wow SECC Crowds

SCOTTISH singer-songwriter Emeli Sande and rap sensation Professor Green will treat the SECC crowd to an exclusive performance at next month’s Mobo Awards bash.

The duo will perform their new track Read All About It which is released next month. The chart topping pair will be joined on stage by a string quartet which will be sure to make for a show stopping performance.

Sande, who hails from Aberdeenshire, will also perform her first solo single Heaven, which scored her a number two hit earlier this year.

Furthermore the 24-year-old is hoping to pick up her first MOBO Award on the night as she is nominated for the Best Newcomer in association with Lebara Mobile, which fans can vote for on the official MOBO Facebook page.

MOBO will also pay respect to the late Amy Winehouse with a special tribute led by the star’s goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield.

The 15-year-old who is nominated for the Best UK R&B/Soul Act, will perform a specially selected Amy song as MOBO remember and honour her unique, soulful contribution to music.

The stars join a heaving line-up which includes the likes of Jessie J, Katy B, Boyz II Men and Jason Derulo.

Alesha Dixon will join Derulo to co-host, while backstage presenters Dappy and Tinchy Stryder will take to the stage to give a joint performance.

R’n’B heavyweights Boyz II Men, soul sensation Jessie J, UK Dubstep star Katy B, UK garage MC Ms Dynamite, grime star Wretch 32 and American R’n’B princess Alexis Jordan complete the line-up.

MOBO CEO and founder Kanya King said of Bromfield’s performance: “Amy made a huge impact on the music industry we want to honour and celebrate this and the special tribute from Dionne is sure to be an emotional and moving experience for all involved.

“This year’s show is certainly going to be a memorable night full of surprises we hope that Glasgow is ready for us!”
