B4 THE ACCOLADES
This video just popped up today and even its poster came to this blog to check it out and comment. I didn't believe it was Ella (full name Ella Yelich-O'Connor aka. Lorde) because the dance was different and the video was edited professionally. I though someone was trying to get some attention for themself. Turns out it really is her. The age, school grade, and year checks out (age 12 in middle high in 2009 is now age 16 as a junior in high school in 2013). And what sealing of the deal - Ella announces her name at the end of the video where her band is interviewed. How many singing Ellas with an accent can there be?
She looked to be a natural performer and entertainer with a strong desire for such a line of work.
A gorgeous and insightful article on Ella. Does anyone know what technology they're using? It's an outstanding, interactive, and beautiful layout.
The band is called Extreme and the performance takes place in Belmont in 2009.
