Burn by Ellie Goulding, performed at Global Citizen Festival NY, 2016

Ellie’s unique voice, softer renditions and the twilight painting the Manhattan skyline purple, boy it doesn’t get better than this! I was lucky enough to be at the Global Citizen Festival last Sunday in NYC where Ellie was one of the special appearances and I can still feel the environment that this performance conjured, it’s a whole new feeling to watch music being created live. I particularly liked Burn (5:45 to 10:14) since I have always enjoyed it for its positive lyrics. This version at the festival however took me to an altogether new place. The slower tempo, softer music, backing vocals and the orangey-purple light was just out of this world. This just proves how valuable Ellie is to today’s music and I am looking forward to more quality songs to come out of her stable.
