Music: Ella Henderson - Ghost

2014-07-04 12:00


In a nutshell: What do you do when you're a huge favourite to win X Factor UK but only finish 6th? You write a kick ass single that climbs to the top of the charts within a week of releasing! That's the story of  Ella Henderson and her new single Ghost.

What’s it like:  Leona Lewis with a bit more soul. Ella's amazing voice is easily the most attractive thing about Ghosts, it's just so strong and filled with character. Like former X Factor UK winner, Leona, Ella has a strength in her voice which keeps the song fresh, even thought the same line has been repeated several times over, just by changing her pitch.

Fave Bit: The chorus " I keep going to the river to pray". It's so catchy, it just makes us want to call our friends over and have a sing along.

Rating:  Fans of X Factor and it's brand of soul pop will love Ghost and that's amazing but if you not a fan of pop or soul sounds don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself tapping your feet or singing along to Ghost when it comes on. It's that catchy!  4 /5
