London-based R&B artist Estelle is set to perform at the 2008 Pepsi MLS All Star Game Halftime Show, July 24th. The singer who is currently enjoying success with her second album âShineâ is expected to headline the Major League Soccerâs 13th annual halftime show performing her international hit âAmerican Boyâ at BMO Field in Toronto, Ontario. “Estelle is an excellent representation of the kind of artist that is ideal for a Major League Soccer special event,” said Geoff Hayes, vice president of special events for Major League Soccer. “Her chart-topping tracks in Europe, combined with her rising star status in North America, amount to an exciting entertainment buzz and incremental attention for this year’s Pepsi MLS All-Star game.” Throughout Shine, Estelle combines sensual, thoughtful love songs that display her unmistakable womanliness with a collection of edgy hip hop songs littered with thought provoking lyricism. The London-based R&B singer was first recognized for her unique hip hop style, winning the “Best Female Artist” award at the UK Hip Hop Awards three years in a row before taking away the prestigious 2004 MOBO award for “Best Newcomer.” Her recent collaborations with the soulful John Legend have guided her onto a new and exciting path in the R&B genre.
