The Schmooze

Blonde British Pop Star's Got (Jewish) Soul

When Prince William got married last year, the dependable yente mill immediately broke into action, trying to find out whether the woman under the altar was a member of the Tribe. Well, it turns out she isn’t (as confirmed by JeworNotJew.com), but the woman who sang at the wedding is. Ellie Goulding, British singer and song-writer, is, in fact, a Jew (put that in your song, Adam Sandler).

Goulding sang her moving cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” at the royal wedding for the first dance (with Mr. John in attendance — quite a bold move on this young blonde’s part), but this is in no way her only claim to fame. Her cover of that song, which she also performed at the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize Concert, had previously reached Number 2 on the U.K. Singles chart, and her album “Lights” reached Number 1 on the U.K. Album chart; that album’s title song reached Number 5 on the Billboard 100 in the U.S. this past week.
