Under the nurturing guidance of mentor Marlon “Solitaire” King at Insomniac Studios, Estelle’s songwriting embraces her emotions, intuitively guiding her lyrics. Mykah Estelle, a beacon of resilience and passion, beautifully exemplifies the transformative power of music, her poignant journey a testament to the healing capacity of self-expression.
