Renowned pop star Ellie Goulding has shared how music has helped her maintain her mental health and cope with anxiety throughout her life. The singer, who released her debut album "Lights" in 2010, credits music with providing her with a safe haven for her voice and songs.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Goulding said she first discovered her love for music as a child when she played clarinet in an orchestra. She later taught herself how to play the guitar and sing simultaneously.

Goulding expressed how singing and playing an instrument at the same time allowed her to feel a sense of safety, which remained with her throughout her teenage and adult years.

The acclaimed artist finds singing to be incredibly therapeutic and states that it has always been a source of solace for her. Goulding explained that singing allows her to express herself, and she believes it is a beneficial activity for anyone to engage in.

Despite her love for singing, the "Love Me Like You Do" singer has also experienced difficulties in social situations. Goulding shared how being on stage is her safe place and where she feels the most confident. In contrast, she finds it challenging to interact with people in social situations outside of her performances.

Ellie Goulding's rise to stardom began when she won a singing competition in the UK in 2008. Her talent quickly gained recognition, and she signed with Polydor Records, releasing her first single "Under the Sheets" in 2009. She then went on to release her debut album "Lights" in 2010, which topped the charts in the UK and received international acclaim.

Her success continued with her subsequent albums, including "Halcyon" and "Delirium," cementing her status as one of the most significant pop stars of the past decade.
