Elena Jane "Ellie" Goulding is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actress from Lyonshall, Herefordshire. Her career began when she met record producer Starsmith and Frankmusik, and she was later spotted by Jamie Lillywhite, who later became her manager and A&R. After signing to Polydor Records in July 2009, Goulding released her debut extended play, An Introduction to Ellie Goulding, later that year.[5]

In 2010, she became the second artist to both top the BBC's annual Sound of... poll and win the Critics' Choice Award at the Brit Awards in the same year, following Adele's win of both in 2008. Goulding released her debut studio album, Lights, in 2010. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and has sold over 850,000 copies in the UK. Her cover of Elton John's "Your Song" reached number two in the UK in December 2010 and on 29 April 2011 she performed the song at the wedding reception of Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Buckingham Palace. The album's title track, "Lights", was released in the US in March 2011, and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 nearly a year and a half later during its thirty-third week charting, completing one of the longest ever climbs into the top two positions on the chart. The single, which lasted over a year on the Billboard Hot 100, was also certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).[6][7]

On September 24th, the 2016 Global Citizen Festival will take over New York City’s Central Park, and the just-released lineup is nothing short of incredible.

Headliners for the massive shindig include Selena Gomez, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Metallica and Major Lazer, while Chris Martin, Eddie Vedder and Ellie Goulding are also scheduled to perform.

Her new album is selling like hotcakes and she’s currently on a tour of the USA, so it’s safe to say that things are going well for Ellie Goulding.

The “Burn” songstress is featured on the front of the Summer 2016 issue of FLARE magazine and in her interview she discusses the current state of feminism- “It’s always tempting to talk about negative things when I get asked this, but I’m also seeing positive changes. A decade ago, a woman would have been too scared to go into the weight section of the gym. Now every time I go to the gym, I see more women lifting weights. But with music, I’m not going to lie—I’ve experienced the misogyny that comes with writing songs like ‘On My Mind,’ where I talk openly about a one-night stand. It’s almost like girls aren’t allowed to have one-night stands, but I’m like, f-ck that.”
