Estelle, hosts media and music insiders at Frank Ski's restaurant and celebrates new album release

ATLANTA -- R & B star, Estelle, was once again back in Atlanta days before her sold out show at CenterStage tonight.  The Atlantic Records artist gave an exclusive "first listen" of her new album to a small group of press and local music insiders who gathered at Frank Ski's Restaurant in Midtown late Sunday evening.

This was my 2nd time meeting Estelle and she was as gracious and personable as ever.  She greeted the small room one-on-one and thanked each of us for being there before playing tracks from the new album.  "All of Me" is her third album and the follow up to her 2008 record, Shine.
