Come January 30 and 31, Grammy Award-winning artiste Estelle will perform for local audiences.

She is slated to perform a set at a special live concert at Usain Bolt Tracks and Records, Montego Bay to launch the 40th anniversary of VP Records. The concert will also include performances by Alborosie, Beenie Man, Christopher Martin, Shenseea, Teejay, and Raging Fyah. According to the organisers the event will also see guest appearances from some of reggae music's biggest stars.

The event, too, will mark the launch of Strictly the Best Live. This multimedia album launch will feature radio links globally, live streaming on YouTube and watch parties in Ocho Rios, Kingston, New York, Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale. On the following night, January 31, Estelle will do a solo show with a full live band at the Coral Cliff Gaming & Entertainment Centre.

“I want fans to feel close to me and experience a great show from beginning to end, said Estelle. “When I give my fans this show, I want them to walk away feeling like they not only experienced a great concert, but to give people the story of my parents, Mike & Deen, and a personal look into the story of who I am.”

Her Jamaican performances will precede a tour of the east coast of the United States in February as she promotes her album Lovers Rock . Dubbed the 'Estelle Experience' the series of intimate performances will begin in New York on February 6 and continue to Philadelphia, Virginia, Atlanta and Nashville, with more cities to be announced later.

Her management noted that The Estelle Experience will give fans a chance to hear the story behind Lovers Rock from Estelle herself.

Inspired by her parents' love story, the album Lovers Rock was released last September and features songs Love Like Ours featuring Tarrus Riley, Better, Lights Out, Meet Up featuring Maleek Berry and So Easy featuring Luke James, which has been climbing the Urban AC Charts, and is currently sitting at number 26.
