Ella Henderson: An Upcoming Star From England

As I was searching through YouTube, I came across a singer-songwriter named Ella Henderson. She was born in Tetney, England and is currently 18 years old. Her first debut in the music industry was through the 9th season of The X-Factor, where she ended up finishing in sixth place. She gained her fame in the competition when she sang an original song for her audition in front of the judges. Her first single, “Ghost”, came out in June of 2014 and was in the Top 5 charts in the United Kingdom for eight weeks. Her new single, “Glow” is to be released on October 5, 2014. And about a week of so after, her first album, Chapter One, will drop. Henderson has a channel on YouTube, which has many videos of songs that she has written and even some covers. My favorite video she has uploaded is a cover of Drake’s “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and John Newman’s “Love Me Again.” She puts a nice twist to these songs, adding her own flare to them. She also shows her audience another one her talents, playing the piano. I am so excited for the release of her first album! Her soulful and strong voice really captured my attention. She is one of those artists where you can really tell she loves what she is doing.
