Vevo has revealed British pop sensation Anne-Marie as its first LIFT act of 2018. Launching on the Vevo YouTube channel on Friday 8 June at 3pm BST, Anne-Marie’s LIFT series will see the ‘2002’ hitmaker release an assortment of live performances and personal behind-the-scenes videos.

The first video in Anne-Marie’s LIFT series is an intimate interview entitled ‘Becoming: Anne-Marie’. Shot recently in Phoenix Park, Dublin when she opened for Ed Sheeran on his sold-out ÷ Tour, ‘Becoming: Anne-Marie’ finds the singer-songwriter exploring the therapeutic quality of song writing and performing, her anxiety until she goes on stage (her ‘safe place’) and being an empath who gets low when seeing sad people.

Since releasing ‘Alarm’ in 2016, which went gold in the U.S., and featuring on Clean Bandit’s 2x platinum ‘Rockabye’ with Sean Paul, 5x BRIT Award nominee Anne-Marie has racked up 5 billion streams and 12 million global single sales. She supported Ed Sheeran on his 2017 arena tour and is now opening for her long-time friend on the European leg of his stadium tour, which includes four sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium. Recent hits ‘Friends’ featuring Marshmallow, and ‘2002’ co-written with Sheeran, Steve Mac and Julia Michaels both soared in to the Top 5 of the UK Singles Chart.

Anne-Marie commented: “I’ve had such a fun time filming with Vevo. We’ve been shooting footage on tour, in recording studios and lots more! So excited to share this LIFT series with you.”
