Casely and Estelle perform at the W Hotel Anniversary Celebration

W Fort Lauderdale celebrated its one year anniversary on Wednesday with a private bash hosted by W Fort Lauderdale developer and CEO of DYL Group John Yanopoulos, super model Cindy Crawford and her dashing husband, nightlife impresario Rande Gerber.  The party was sponsored by Grey Goose vodka.  Lucky guests were treated to a musical performance by Grammy Award-winning recording artist Estelle, made famous by her chart-topping collaboration with rapper Kanye West, titled American Boy.  Estelle showed off her charismatic personality, inviting the audience to sing along for most of the performance of the all-too-familiar song in the hotel’s swank Living Room.  She also sang One Love, which worked everyone into a frenzy.  Before Estelle took the stage, Yonopoulos welcomed guests and gave a champagne toast alongside model, Cindy Taylor. 

Up-and-coming R&B/hip-hop artist Casely got the crowd dancing by singing several songs, before Estelle took over.  After the concerts, Dennis Rodman, seemingly inspired by the musical acts (or tequila) took to the stage to sing along to the music being played by the DJ.  He was particularly effusive during the dance mix of Be Somebody by Kings of Leon.
