For the next couple of weeks, Houston will be visited by a couple of soulful, award-winning Brit chicks. Booming-voiced, zaftig darling — and newly minted Best New Artist 2009 Grammy winner — Adele hits Warehouse Live next week for an already sold-out show. But Tuesday, House of Blues will welcome to its stage the gal that handed that Grammy to her, singer/rapper Estelle. Estelle also won a Grammy that same night: Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for her hit "American Boy," which she performed on the telecast with glitter-jacketed partner Kanye West. With a Grammy under her belt and both West and John Legend (whose label brought her second album, Shine, to the U.S. last year) co-signing her Cockney musical talents, it appears that Estelle's continuing mission to get some Stateside love won't be that daunting a task.
