1980 -

Origin: United Kingdom

Born in London to Senegalese parents, Estelle Fanta Swaray caused an immediate sensation in elite pop circles. Confident and charismatic, Estelle has gained an international following with her neo-soul style-a blend of reggae, electro and hip-hop. Guided by her instincts, she surrounded herself from the outset with such talented artists as Will.i.Am and Kanye West, who shared vocal duties on the hit single American Boy. For her second CD, Shine, Estelle called upon renowned singer and pianist John Legend.
