There are few things in life that make me question my abilities as a human being. One of them being Olympic athletes that are my age doing things that I could never do. Another being Ella Eyre’s incredible voice and there is no better example of why I feel that way than if you just listen to her debut single, “If I Go”. Her vocal performance in this song—and her vocal abilities in general—is simply jaw dropping. The sheer power of her voice alone is enough to bring attention to the young 20-year old but to add in crisp production and an undeniably catchy chorus, well that’s just a formula for success. And let me tell you, Ella Eyre deserves it all.
