Singer/Songwriter Ella (Born Michelle Lynette Reid) is from Stillwater, Minnesota. She openly tells her life story at http://www.ellaspage.com/. When I first listened to her sing, I heard something deep and powerful. After reading about her life, I now understand what I heard.
A car accident nearly ended her life and from this tragic episode, she has mustered the strength and determination to do what she always wanted to do. As she says, “music is my life blood and I finally have what I wanted all along. A passion that I eat breathe and love, I want to touch lives thru my music”.
