Biography

Estelle Fanta Swaray (born 18 January 1988), simply known as Estelle, is a British singer-songwriter, rapper, producer and Grammy Award winner from West London, England. In league with other contemporary British sirens like Amy Winehouse, Adele and Duffy, Estelle is known for her eclectic mix of various musical genres including R&B, soul, reggae, grime, hip hop, pop and dance. She has experienced significant mainstream success with the single “American Boy” feat. Kanye West, for her collaboration with David Guetta in “One Love” and also with songs like “1980”, “Free”, “Thank You” and “Conqueror”.

Estelle is one of the UK’s most celebrated R&B idols, and with a string of critically acclaimed chart-topping hits and platinum-selling albums, she is known for her high-profile collaborations with many of the world’s most famous artists including Kanye West, David Guetta, John Legend, Robin Thicke and will.i.am. She is currently voicing Garnet in Cartoon Network’s “Steven Universe.”

Estelle was born and raised in London. Her mother’s family came from Senegal, and her father is from Grenada. She was the second-born of eight children. Estelle’s parent’s were very religious when she was growing up, and secular music wasn’t allowed in the family’s home. Instead, spiritual music - particularly American gospel - and traditional African music were what Estelle grew up listening to. She’s previously revealed though, that she would sometimes listen to hip-hop when not at home. By the time she was in her early 20s, she had decided on a music career.
