Ella Henderson - Glow
18 year-old Ella is from Tetney in Lincolnshire and began putting on singing shows at home for her family and later won a scholarship to a performing arts school in Hertfordshire when she was 11 years-old. She rose to fame in the 2012 series of the X Factor. Despite being a strong favourite, Ella came 6th with the winner finally announced as James Arthur. Since then, Ella has signed to Simon Cowell’s record label and has spent the last 2 years writing and recording songs. ‘Ghost’ became Ella’s debut single co-written by Ryan Tedder, the lead vocalist with One Republic. It has gone on to sell over half a million copies in the UK and was named the biggest selling song of the summer. Glow is the only track on her debut album ‘Chapter One’ album that Ella didn’t write.
