There are few songs in today’s market that are what you call cross-over songs. Songs that can be played on Country, Alternative, Pop, and RnB stations all at once. Ella Henderson has become a cross-over artist with her new single “Ghost” that has been taking the Sirius radio channels by storm.
Gabriella Michelle “Ella” Henderson, is a British singer-songwriter. She was a finalist on the ninth season of The X Factor in 2012 and finished in sixth place. She was signed to Syco Music under Simon Cowell.
“Ghost” was co-written by Ryan Tedder, best known as the frontman for OneRepublic. Her debut album is scheduled to be released in the Fall, and will be entitled “Chapter One.”
Not only does this song pull from her UK roots, but it draws RnB and blues sounds for a soulful and catchy hook.
You’ll be getting two for the price of one today with this lunch time listen as I will also include an amazing mash up that Henderson released last year. She bridges “Hold On We’re Going Home” and “Love Me Again,” for an amazing and emotional acoustic piece. Henderson is a breathe of fresh air. An actual musician. Enjoy!
