Ella Mai: On The Rise
Growing up in London, Ella Mai’s mom raised her on a steady musical diet of Lauren Hill and Missy Elliott. At age 12, she moved to New York to attend a performing arts school. Finally, in her late teens, feeling the pull of home, Ella returned to London and got serious about her voice.
After a failed stint on the “The X-Factor” with girl group Arize, Mai went solo and signed with DJ Mustard’s record label in Los Angeles. Consequently the rest, as they say, is history.
Ella Mai is currently on Bruno Mars’ “24k Magic” world tour alongside Ciara, Boyz II Men and Charlie Wilson.
