CURRENTLY ON STAGE… ESTELLE – UK’s BRIGHT NEW STAR

Born in Hammersmith, London, England, 32 year old Estelle is a rising star with a style that’s reminiscent of Lauren Hill.  I hate comparisons, honestly, but my second comparison might be to Raphael Saddiq (former lead singer for Tony Toni Tone).  Both comparisons are meant to be highly complimentary.  She can sing, she can Rap (with a British accent) and she’s quite the performer.  Her first album, “The 18th Day,” made a splash and then sputtered out in Great   Britain.  For her sophomore record, Estelle was presented to the world by John Legend, who was presented years prior by Kanye West.  Her second album, Shine, was released on John Legend’s HomeSchool Records label for Atlantic Records in 2008.  With artist appearances by Kanye, John Legend and Cee Lo, the album came to the world’s attention.  She really got everybody’s attention when she won a Grammy for her song featuring Kanye West, “American Boy.”  Her third studio album, All Of Me, was released this year and her second single, “Thank You,” is still rising in popularity.  This emotional and really pretty song about a cheating lover was written by singer, Akon, who can be heard helping out on background vocals on the recording.  Estelle has the singing chops, the “Look” for popular appeal and is a dynamic performer, which should guarantee her star will rise and rise for a long, long time.  Check out these choice Videos of EstelleCURRENTLY ON STAGE.
