How cute is Ellie Goulding? Very cute, according2g. Watch this video to see why she’s about to take over the pop music world. This was her first performance in New York and there’s going to be many more to come.
I don’t think it’s possible for singer Ellie Goulding to be any cuter. The British singer played her first ever show in New York at Hiro Ballroom on September 30, 2010 and she was so excited to play for us. The crowd reciprocated the love and when I met Ellie after the show, she was extremely nice. She signed autographs and took photos with fans including the above picture you see. Several of my friends met her as well and all of us had a very pleasant chat with Ellie. Based on her smash single “Starry Eyed,” I think it’s just a matter of time until we hear a lot more about Ellie Goulding.
