Ella Henderson Biography
Ella Henderson (Gabriella Michelle Henderson) was born on 12th January 1996 in Tetney a little fishing town, United Kingdom. She is a English musician. She grew up listening to her grandfather’s record collection – Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra – and was soon singing along, teaching herself to play the family piano that had been ignored by her three older siblings.
By the age of 10, she decided that Grimsby could no longer contain her. She sought out three appropriate schools, two in London, one in America. Her parents, not quite ready to relinquish their precocious daughter just yet, came up with a compromise: Tring Park, in not-so-far-away Hertfordshire.
But Tring Park was no Brit School, with no ties to the industry, and so she decided to give X Factor a go. She was convinced she would never actually get on TV, but hoped that by playing her own song she would catch the ear of somebody important. Nevertheless, she did make it onto the show, and into the live finals. For a while, she was favourite to win.
When she was unexpectedly voted off with still six weeks to run, Adele tweeted support for her, while host Dermot O’Leary suggested she might be one of the most gifted contestants the show had yet seen. Others agreed, and by the following Monday morning she was being courted by four record companies, before signing to Simon Cowell’s SyCo label.
Cowell wasn’t on the judging panel in her year, so the first time she met him was in a record company boardroom, he one side of his desk, she the other. Cowell did what he always does with amateurs, and put her in the studio with his most experienced songsmiths – Ryan Tedder, Steve Mac, Salaam Remi – which is why the resulting album, Chapter One, sounds so vorsprung durch technik, so ruthlessly efficient. If at times it’s a little anonymous, anthemic-pop-by-numbers, it is always emboldened by Henderson’s powerful voice, and is never more affecting than on the lovely track “Hard Work”. The single “Ghost” seems unlikely to be its only No 1.
