Soul singer Laura Mvula reaches number four on BBC Sound of 2013 list

By
Soul singer Laura Mvula has been announced in fourth position on the BBC Sound of 2013 list.

Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens revealed Mvula's place on his radio show this morning (January 1).

The Birmingham singer released her EP She in November 2012, which received high critical praise.

Mvula is tipped for big things in 2013, with Guardian and BBC Music writer Paul Lester describing her sound as "like hearing Billie Holiday with The Beach Boys".

However, the 26-year-old remains modest, telling The Observer: "I'm the geeky kid of R&B."

Glasgow synth-pop trio CHVURCHES were announced to be in fifth position on the list yesterday.

Number three on the list will be announced by Stephens live on BBC Radio 1 tomorrow morning at 7.15am.
