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‚ÄĒstateside 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‚ÄĒa¬†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."
