The Unsung Hero is someone who has selflessly gone above and beyond to help, inspire and be a positive example to his/her colleagues.
This week's unsung hero is Elle Nilson, who sings in Estetica. On Friday, Elle talked about one of her classmates at the jazz concert, but she could easily have been describing herself! She is kind, helpful and has a terrific voice!
