She was often likened to the ‘Rolling In The Deep’ singer, and now former X Factor contestant Ella Henderson is working with Adele’s songwriter and also woman-of-the-moment Emeli Sande, on her debut album.
The 17-year-old, who competed in last year’s X Factor, is already in the studio working on her debut record, just weeks after she signed a record label deal with Sony Music. In a bid to create sure-fire hits, Ella has revealed that she is working with some of the biggest songwriters in the UK.
“I’ve always been a massive, massive fan of Emeli. I’m in awe of her for songwriting reasons ” Ella told Heat magazine.
“I’m meeting with her soon, we’ve spoken but not met face to face. It feels so weird that I’m coming into a world with an artist I respect.”
As if Emeli Sande wasn’t impressive enough, Ella will also be hooking up with Ed White, who had a hand in penning Adele’s ‘Chasing Pavements’.

“When I got the Adele tweet I was like, ‘Ohhhhh my god’. She’s world class,” an excited Ella revealed.
“She’s not been in touch, I hear rumours that she likes me. And it would be amazing to one day meet her and do a collaboration.”
For those who can’t wait for an album to hear Ella’s stunning voice, you catch her at the National Television Awards on Wednesday on ITV1.
