A north-east pop star’s chart domination has added nearly £2million to the bank balance of her music company.

Papers lodged with Companies House – which go up to the end of August last year – show that Emeli Sande’s Big Ideas Music firm now has assets worth £2,474,184, up from £533,883 the previous year.

The 27-year-old, who is originally from Alford, sold two million copies of Our Version of Events, which was 2012’s biggest seller and won numerous awards.

Its success led to her being invited to perform at the opening and closing ceremonies of the London Olympics, as well as several other major events such as Elton John’s post-Oscars party in Los Angeles.

According to the Sunday Times Rich List, the former Alford Academy pupil is now worth £8million, making her on of the richest young musicians in the UK.

Adele – who is said to be worth £45million – remains Britain’s richest young musician.

With £30million in the bank, DJ Calvin Harris is second.

The five members of One Direction – Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson – are reportedly worth an estimated £14million each.

Collectively that makes One Direction the richest boyband in British music history, with a combined wealth of £70m.
