During her appearance today on the BBC Live Lounge, Jessie Ware sang Rihanna's 'Diamonds' and gave the song a stripped-down treatment with a slighter slower tempo than RiRi's version. Ware's elegant voice stood out next to the programmed drum beats and gentle guitar melody. She was joined by a backup singer who added the hook "Shine bright like a diamond."

As one of our Artists to Watch in 2013, Ware is expected to achieve big things with her debut album 'Devotion.' To hear more from this rising star, check her out during her series of club dates scheduled for April.
