One word: Inspiring!
The crowd was singing along during every song, and gave a thunderous applause after each one. The experience completely took me by surprise, as I would never have guessed that Ellie Goulding had such incredible fans thousands of miles from her London home. Even with tons of star-struck fans, Ellie kept a humble demeanor which made everyone love her even more.
Elena Jane Goulding is a 24 year-old British singer-songwriter who has been touring for 2 years. With the help of production wiz Starsmith, she dropped her debut single “Under the Sheets” last year and her full length album Lights in March earlier this year.
Ellie received lots of acclaim by winning Brits ‘Critics Choice’ Award, which puts her in the ranks with Adele and Florence + the Machine. She has enjoyed success on the top of British music charts ever since. Once America catches on, ticket sales will no longer be $13 to see her at an intimate venue! So look out for Ellie Goulding in a big way very soon. We have no doubt that she will breakthrough to the mainstream in the States while never losing her humility and charming personality.
Big thanks to For The Win! Media (www.forthewinmedia.com) for putting together such an incredible performance.
