The entire world wants to meet you and you’re only 16. It may sound like a conundrum or a complete fantasy depending on who you are. When you happen to be Lorde, otherwise known as Ella Yelich-O’Connor, you’ve been thrust into international acclaim by topping Billboard, Itunes and most world pop charts. The New Zealand teen navigates lyrics that speak not only to her peers but adults as well. Lorde has broken through the musical language barrier and it is an inspiring feat for someone so young to universally unite people with her music. Lorde released her album Pure Heroine on September 30th.


Do you think music inspires unity?
