Scottish singer Emeli Sandé wants to "heal people through music" post-pandemic.
Emeli admitted she'd been thinking about her friends working as doctors during covid, and wanted to do what she could to help.
She's just released some new music too, 'Let's Say For Instance' dropped on May 6th.
Appearing on 'The Rebecca Judd Show' on Apple Music 1, she said: "I really want to give people release with the music and definitely during lockdown, because I used to study medicine.
"I have a lot of friends who are now doctors and obviously we're talking about the NHS so much, the frontline workers.
"I was like, 'Whoa, what is my use? Music is a wonderful thing for entertaining and it's... I'm privileged and I love to make music. It's great for me, but what am I actually giving to people, and how can I heal through the music?'
"So, that was something that was always on my mind. Through the music, how can I connect and heal and give something beyond entertainment?"
