Singer Sande beats Beatles' chart record

SINGER Emeli Sande has broken a record held for almost 50 years by The Beatles after her debut album 'Our Version of Events' spent 63 weeks in the UK top 10.

The previous record for a debut LP was 62 weeks, for The Beatles' 'Please Please Me' in 1963 and 1964.

Sande said: "It feels quite surreal to even have your name mentioned in the same sentence as The Beatles.

"For a record to stay there for so long it means that people have connected with it so that's how I'm enjoying celebrating this record." (© Independent News Service)
