British singer Ellie Goulding is an English singer and songwriter.
Goulding released her debut studio album, Lights, in 2010. It debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart and has sold over 850,000 copies in the UK to date.
The album’s title track, which went by the same name as the album, was released in the US in March 2011, and peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Her cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” has also been widely praised. It 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.
Like many other celebrities, Ellie traveled to Kenya where she became a UN Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador. She posted:
She had fun at the Maasai Mara and later on went to see some giraffes at Nairobi’s Giraffe Manor Hotel.
A post on Giraffe Manor’s Facebook page read;
It was an honour to host Ellie Goulding as she became a UN Environment Global Goodwill Ambassador. She was joined in Garden Manor for breakfast by some of her biggest fans.
We are glad she had lots of fun.
