British singer Ellie Goulding is one lucky gal! Not only has she been invited to the biggest party in the land — she’ll be performing for the royal crowd at the reception for Prince William and Kate Middleton!

The UK cutie is quite popular across the pond — she won the BBC Sound of 2010 poll and took the trophy for the Critics Choice Award at the 2010 BRIT Awards.

Why did Prince Will + Kate choose Ellie to sing on their big day?

The Daily Mail says the couple loves her music and especially enjoyed her debut album, Lights.

An insider added:

“Ellie was knocked off her feet when she received the invitation to perform for Prince William and Kate–and was so hugely honored when they said they were both fans of her music… It hasn’t sunk in yet.”
