MOBO 2013 Double Award Winner Laura Mvula Is The Bookies Favourite To Win Mercury Music Prize

It looks like Laura Mvula will have to create more shelf space next to her two MOBO awards, as she is on course to take home this year's Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize.  Bookmakers William Hill have said that 'Sing To The Moon', her debut album, is 5/2 odds on to win on 30th October... in betting terms those seem to be high odds!  A spokesman said: "We have been betting on this award for two decades and nobody can remember a price move like it... It looks like the market underestimated her and if she goes on to win we are going to have a shocker."

Earlier this month Laura took the MOBO awards for Best Female and Best R&B/Soul at the 18th annual award ceremony.  She is up against fellow 2013 MOBO nominees Disclosure and Rudimental.

Good luck to them all!
