I’m calling it now: 2015’s first breakout artist will be Ella Henderson. I mean, yes, she released her album in 2014 and she released “Ghost” in the US last year. But she’s not that big yet.
I think that will change…very soon.
The former X-Factor UK contestant recently went on a US tour to promote her new album, Chapter One. I’m loving her. Her voice is reminiscent of Adele, Emile Sandé and Leona Lewis. Her music—a combo of irresistible pop ballads and gospel-tinged pop songs—reminds me a bit of Sam Smith. So basically, this girl is a combination of amazing British vocalists. She’s only 19, but she’s already a force to be reckoned with.
