Jessie Ware: From backing singer to rising star

Help

Brixton's Jessie Ware started her career supporting friends as a backing vocalist but it was not long before her talent was recognised.

She is now in the spotlight as a solo artist, winning over critics as a rising star and gaining a Mercury Prize nomination for her debut album.

BBC London's Brenda Emmanus catches up with her to ask her why she thinks the capital has produced so many successful female singer/songwriters.
