Singer-songwriter Ella Henderson burst onto our scenes in 2014 with her multi-platinum selling single ‘Ghost’, which topped the charts for 2 consecutive weeks in the UK, becoming the fastest selling debut single of any British Artist of 2014 and going on to sell over 2.5 million copies worldwide. The girl from Tetney, who describes herself as ‘dead normal’ is anything but. There’s her incredible voice, of course, the gloriously gutsy, defiantly soulful driving force of Ella’s debut album ‘Chapter One’, which includes her smash hit singles ‘Glow’, ‘Yours’ and ‘Mirror Man’, as well as of course ‘Ghost’. As remarkable as that voice, however, is the teenager’s self-assurance. It derives from a drive to achieve an ambition she has held since the age of 11 – to write her own songs and sing them. With this ambition & talent she has managed to achieve acclaimed success on both sides of the Atlantic. Since the release of multi-million selling single ‘Ghost’, Ella has received two BRIT Award nominations for 'Best British Female' and 'Best British Single', she’s seen her debut album ‘Chapter One’ hit #1 in the UK and reach platinum status in 9 countries worldwide. In the US ‘Ghost’ sold over a million copies, her album ‘Chapter One’ followed, charting at #11 on the Billboard charts. She wowed audiences on David Letterman, The Ellen DeGenres Show, Jimmy Fallon, The Voice USA, Good Morning America and many others, and has earned herself a celebrity fanbase ranging from Pharrell, to Adele to Cher.
2015 saw Ella & her band perform to over half a million fans supporting Take That on their 40-date arena tour, followed by summer festival performances across the UK and Europe. In May 2015 Ella announced her collaboration with UK drum & bass duo Sigma on their single ‘Glitterball’. The single went on to become the anthem of the summer and charted at #4 in the official charts. Ella then teamed up with Norwegian DJ & producer Kygo, where she co-wrote single ‘Here For You’ which had over 20 million streams in its first month. In October 2015 Ella kicked off her debut headline tour across the UK, performing to over 26 thousand fans. Ella is currently back in the studio writing her eagerly anticipated second album.
