Laura Mvula on Abbey Road and stage fright
Singer and songwriter Laura Mvula has had an incredible two years in the music industry.
The 28-year-old has gone from being a relative unknown to a Mobo-winning, Brit award-nominated artist.
Her debut album, Sing to the Moon, reached number nine in the UK album charts when it was released in March 2013.
Classically trained with a degree in composition, her dreams were realised when she was given the opportunity to record her second album at the famous Abbey Road studios with a live orchestra.
She spoke to BBC News about her musical journey to success, and why she still cannot watch old performances of herself on television.
