Grammy Award-winning artist Estelle is a truth-speaking force.

The British singer-songwriter first came on the scene in the early 2000s, and with her charming accent and vivacious spirit, she has made her mark on the music industry—stateside and abroad.

Estelle has made herself vulnerable through her willingness to sing about life's complications. Expect for the enchantress's music to reflect breakups, makeups and everything in between. And now, with a Grammy, numerous accolades and her own label, Estelle is a conqueror—a powerful and bold woman standing tall in the music industry.

The Root got a chance to chat with Estelle to discuss fearlessness, how she stands in her truth and, naturally, to share some "food for thought."
