Sophie & Elsie Rave!

As seen on the artRAVE in Paris via Yahoo! Live, Lady Gaga's band was joined on stage by two female singers. They are British vocalists Sophie Hiller and Elsie!

Sophie and Elsie have their own solo careers going and are also known for their backup vocal duties for the likes of Tom Jones and Nicole Scherzinger. With Lady Gaga, they sang at the last three artRAVEs, in Sheffield, Newcastle, and Paris.

Sophie Hiller is a singer/songwriter specializing in soul/pop, Motown, and jazz. Sophie is on Twitter, where she announced to join Gaga on tour, on Instagram, where she posted a few pictures, and also has her own website.

Elsie (pronounced L.C., the initials of Laura Critchley, the singer's birthname) is from Liverpool. She is also on Twitter, where she announced the Paris show, on Facebook, on soundcloud with an EP, and has a website as well. Elsie's Japanese fan club is also on twitter, which also announced her Paris show.
