Michael Kiwanuka has been named the BBC’s Sound of 2012 winner. He follows in the footsteps of the likes of Adele, Ellie Goulding and Jessie J who have all topped the list in the past few years.
The British soul singer is signed to Communion Records and we can look forward to his debut album, Home Again, on 23 March. He has already supported Adele on tour and his laid back, soulful style has been compared to Bill Withers.
