What a lucky girl! British singer Ellie Goulding will perform for Kate Middleton and Prince William at their wedding reception.

Talk about dream job! Rising British star Ellie Goulding has been asked to serenade Prince William and Kate Middleton at their wedding reception, reports the Daily Mail. The 24-year-old will apparently be the only singer performing at the Buckingham Palace reception.

The couple asked Ellie to sing at their reception because they are “big fans” of her music after listening to her album Lights. “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,” a source tells the Daily Mail. “She still can’t quite believe that she will perform for the Royal newlyweds, all the young Royal guests and their friends, it hasn’t sunk in yet.”

Ellie is planning on singing her version of “Your Song”, written by Princess Di‘s close friend Elton John. Beyonce and Jay-Z made a list of possible performers, but it sounds like this up-and-coming singer will do an amazing job too!

Ellie won both a Critics Choice Award at the 2010 Brit Awards and the BBC Sound of 2010 poll. Do you think she was the right choice for sole singer at the Royal Wedding reception?
