There was a lot of great music out there this past year and perhaps one of my favorite singles belonged to the beautiful lady in these photos. “Lights” by Ellie Goulding may not have been my absolute favorite song of the year but it’s at least in the top ten. In these photos we see Ellie Goulding performing at the Manchester Academy and I think she looks fantastic. I’ve always thought Ellie was gorgeous, mainly because she doesn’t look like every other pop star out there. She has her own thing going on and I think that’s great. I think that’s a big part of what I like about her music as well. She doesn’t sound like everyone else there. I think she’s going to be sticking around for a while.
