This week we want to highlight (with the brightest neon marker I can find in my drawer) Ellie Goulding. We were so honored to hear that she is a fan of Miss KL. She said she thinks we are cool! No no no Ellie, you ARE bloody cool.
This girl is the balls! Her biggest hit “Lights” on her debut album in 2010 is still murdering dance floors across the world. Her other major hit from said album, cover of Elton John’s “Your Song”, is one of my personal favorites. It’s one of those hair-raising tunes for me. Let’s face it most covers pile in comparison to the originals. It like the multiple “seriously?” attempts at unsuccessfully covers of MJ. (with the exception of The Weeknd, of course) Oh and she performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, that’s some royal sh*t right there.
Miss Ellie’s cover however delivers full justice with that high yet delicate vocal range of hers. She is currently on tour in support of her most recent album “Halcyon” so make sure to check location and dates. You wouldn’t want to miss the magic.
Ellie, I can Princess Cam you all day.
