A Soulful Performance by Selah Sue
The Belgium bred twenty-one-year-old Selah Sue delivers a soulful performance in the live recording of “This World” at Zénith in Lille, France.
Selah Sue was not destined to become an artist. “I grew up in a really little town in Belgium, and none of my family was into music,” reveals the twenty‐one year old, with refreshing sincerity. “As a kid, I wanted to be a ballerina. I danced from the age of six to twelve”. Even without romanticising it, her story is like a fairy tale. It’s the story of a young musician who ignores her fate, and pours her anxieties into her songs and her guitar. Thousands of fans responded to her on the net, attracting the attention of professionals, and the interest of Because Music, which eventually led to a record deal for the young musician. Like Janelle Monae, M.I.A. or Aloe Blacc, Selah Sue belongs to a new generation for whom music has no boundaries.
