"It was a wonderful respect to be asked by Kate and William to achieve at their party," Goulding, 24, told Us Weekly completely on Saturday. "The feeling was unbelievable and it is a night I'll never forget!"

Goulding was supposedly the only singer invited to make at the intimate bash, where just 300 close family and pals of William, 28, and Catherine, 29, partied down. An attendee tells Us that Goulding performed her moving cover of Elton John's "Your Song," plus her more-dance sociable hit "Starry-Eyed."

Goulding was the champion of the BBC Sound of 2010 poll and was awarded the Critics preference Awards at the 2010 BRIT Awards; the royal pair supposedly chose the getting higher star because they were both a lot of fans of her 2010 entrance album, Lights. She is also the planned musical visitor on the May 7 episode of Saturday Night Live, with visitor star Tina Fey.
A different star at the small bash? Man of respect Prince Harry, who toasted his big brother and new sister-in-law with a "brilliant" speech, according to another attendee.
