estelle-5

Last week the Heineken Red Star Soul Tour hit Dallas, Texas at the trendy industry hot spot the Ghostbar and featured performances by the lovely British songstress Estelle, Atlanta rapper Big Boi (Outkast) and DJ D-Nice (Boogie Down Productions).

 

Hosted by comedian Kevin Hart (Soul Plane), the 21 and up event provided the crowd with free Heineken while overlooking the downtown Dallas skyline from atop the 33rd floor of luxurious Westin Hotel.

 

DJing was provided by D-Nice, who spun Hip-Hop classics in between sets and after the performances, keeping eagerly awaiting fans entertained.

 

 

Estelle performed first, blessing the crowd with melodies from her most recent album Shine and mixing in a few other songs from her previous work.

 

When asked about her upcoming album Estelle said that the first single “All Night Long” ft Ludacris and John Legend unfortunately leaked, but that she was “looking forward to releasing the new material to fans properly.”
