Ella Henderson To 'Wonderland' Mag: 'I Don't Want To Copy Anyone'

Ella Henderson looks breathtaking in this new feature from Wonderland magazine’s summer issue.

The 18-year-old British singer opened up to the glossy about life after X Factor UK, her record dreams and more. Check it:

On filming her “Ghost” video in New Orleans: “There’s that dark, spooky side to New Orleans, and we filmed in the swamps at night with the crocodiles. It [voodoo reading] was scary. The first thing she [the card reader] said was, ‘I need to tell you some dates. In April things are going to kick off, and in June is when your dreams will potentially become reality.’ In April, everything goes to radio, and June is when my single goes to iTunes. It was so weird and she had no idea who I was. But it was all career lead – no love popped up.”

On her upcoming album: “”I wanted to make this big record and have it played worldwide, and he [Ryan Tedder] knows a special formula to write songs like that. We started it in London, but just after Christmas I flew to Denver to his home, and we finished it there. I turned 18 in the booth, so we had a beer.”

On her future sound: “I don’t wanna copy anyone, I didn’t want to do a retro record. I wanted to do something new, and fresh. In the beginning I was open to anything, but you figure out what your sound is, and when you go into sessions there’s certain things you have to be open, and honest on. When it comes to my music, when it’s your job, you can be cutthroat about things.”
