- Ellie Goulding made a name for herself on the strength of such singles as "Starry Eyed," "Lights," "Anything Could Happen," and "Burn."

- "Love Me Like You Do" earned Goulding a Best Pop Solo Performance nomination at the 58th GRAMMY Awards. That same year, she made her GRAMMY stage debut with Andra Day, singing "Rise Up" and "Love Me Like You Do."
