Ellie Goulding Covers Sting’s ‘Fields of Gold’ At Westminster Abbey

By Amanda Wicks

(RADIO.COM) – Ellie Goulding is no stranger when it comes to performing before royalty. In 2011, she sang at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding reception because the couple reported being big fans of her music. As if that weren’t pressure enough, on Monday, March 14th, the singer performed in front of the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey in London as part of England’s Commonwealth Day celebrations.

Dressed in prim yet sharp attire, Goulding sang Sting’s classic song “Fields of Gold.” Her moving acoustic rendition fitted the pomp and circumstance surrounding the day. Backed by two acoustic guitars, Goulding’s voice didn’t strive to reach the power and punch it normally achieves, but instead observed a more somber tone.

Kensington Palace shared the performance on its Twitter account.
