One Hit Wonders 2



Estelle Fanta Swaray, or commonly Estelle, is a singer who has joined into the voice acting business since 2013. The character she voices is Garnet on the Cartoon Network animated series, “Steven Universe.”

I managed to hear a bit of Estelle’s music before, specifically the song she collaborated with Kanye West titled “American Boy.” Her voice has a slight rasp into it, but that provides a lot of moxie to her vocals, giving her an interesting caterwaul. Estelle has also collaborated with other vocalists. They include John Legend with the song, “No Other Love,”  Robin Thicke with the song “Rollacoasta,” and Rick Ross with the song, “Break My Heart.”

Estelle’s character, Garnet, is a very interesting and relatable character. On “Steven Universe,” she is shown as calm and mysterious, with a little bit of red inside. “Steven Universe” is one of my current favorite cartoons, and Garnet is one of the reasons why. She’s strong, she’s wise, and she’s also caring towards Steven in helping him develop his powers more.

Estelle, a unique vocal talent, can sing and can act. To me, that’s a winning combination of the kind of people who can get into the voice acting world. Estelle is still new, but more and more people are discovering her vocal talent, and they should know about the kind of vocal abilities she has.
