“The big thing for me is to raise awareness to people,” Ella shared on the program. “I’ve got some friends back home who’ve experienced it [cyber bullying] and I’m lucky enough to have support and a team around me — to get rid of it and to block that person [from Twitter] — I’ve got that wall. The kids back at home don’t tell anybody. They don’t tell a parent and they’re on the internet and think it’s a bad thing so they’re afraid to even log online. It can become a scary thing [and] the internet shouldn’t be.”
Ella Henderson poses with the new Peugeot Design Lab Pleyel piano in this new shot from the launch this week in London.
The 17-year-old singer shared of playing the new instrument, “It’s been a real privilege to be one of the first performers to play on the Peugeot Design Lab Pleyel piano. The design of it is so different to anything I’ve played on before and while it comes from a company more recognized for their stylish cars, it looks so futuristic and sounds incredible. It definitely added something to my performance today.”
For the first time in the history, Peugeot’s piano lets the audience see the artist play from all frontal views, showing off the pianist’s hands and creating a higher level of sound response and interaction between them and the audience.
Check out “Evaporate” – an original song from Ella Henderson that she shared with fans during a LiveStream on Sunday (December 30).
The 16-year-old singer, who has been signed to Sony records, chatted with fans live for about an hour before singing two songs including Christina Aguilera‘s “Beautiful.”
“I sang it to Olly Murs when I met him the first time on X Factor,” Ella said of “Evaporate.” “Hopefully, you never know, this song, probably with adjustments and stuff in the studio, could end up on my album as well.”
