HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - Feb. 12, 2014 - PRLog -- With the social-sphere approving “twerking” as the new norm with regards to acceptable soul music for our time, songstress Lady Ele has a refreshing perspective permeating its way through the musical landscape. Lady Ele’s recent EP release, “Coming From A Lady” boldly served notice to the music industry and secured a NAACP Image Award nomination for Outstanding World Music Album alongside music veterans Natalie Cole and Gloria Estefan.

Born Eleonore Hansson to a Swedish Mother and a North African Father, Lady Ele started her career singing in bands, choirs and winning several talent shows before landing long-term gigs as a background singer for various soulful Swedish artists.

“It’s such an honor and I’m so humbled by this esteemed recognition. The NAACP Image Awards have always inspired me and it’s a dream come true to now be a part of it,” says Lady Ele.

Her unique, global sound captivates music lovers whose palates crave alluring musicality and vulnerability. “I’m excited for Lady Ele to be recognized among such amazing talent. The NAACP Image Award is a very prestigious award full of meaning and purpose,” says Manager Peter Mott.
