Mirror Man is the latest track from the delightful Gabriella (Ella) Henderson. This follows her very successful launch of the single Ghost described as the best-selling single in the summer; it was launched at the beginning of June. Her debut album will be released in the UK on October 13 2014.
Ella Henderson was a finalist on the ninth series of the X Factor in the UK in 2012. She finished in sixth place. Her debut single Ghost went straight to number one.and remained in the top 5 for eight consecutive weeks. Her second single Glow is to be released a week before her debut album Chapter One.
Since her departure from X-Factor she has been busy performing live and on TV. She has written the songs for her album collaborating with Claude Kelly. According to Capital One FM Ella also collaborated with Emili Sandé.
Leaving the X Factor early was almost certainly a blessing. Ella is a songwriter as well as a performer and already had her own style by the time she reached week six. The X-Factor process seems strange to me. Aspiring performers are chosen because of their talent and originality and potential X-factor and then encouraged to sing in every style under the sun. It might make good television but I am sure it is not beneficial to the performers.
I’m looking forward to seeing her progress.
