Biography

Pop singer. Born in Phoenix, Arizona. Elle trained as
a dancer and performer from the early age of 6 and
began her solo career in Las Vegas, Nevada. With
dreams of shooting high and persistence of never
giving up, her pursuit to success was never too far away.
Her defiant and confident stage performances caught
the attention of manager Horacio Blackwood formerly of
the Dick Scott Management Group (New Kids On The
Block, Boyz II Men, Patti Austin, James Ingram and
Mark Walberg to name a few) and in early 2007 signed a
production deal with DNM worldwide. Under the
direction of Mark Fiest (producer of Destiny’s Child
Emotion) and songwriter Damon Sharpe (Jenifer Lopez’s
Love Don’t Cost a Thing), Elle was given the
opportunity to co-write and produce her music. The
completion of her first album "Behind the Velvet
Rope," soon to be released, is her personal diary and
tells the story of the struggles that she faced in
finding herself. It is dedicated to those who did not
believe in her and to those few who did.

Often compared to Kelly Clarkson and Pink, Elle oozes
an energetic cool like no other her age. Her
infectious lyrics provide a sound track to the
consumer generation while her relaxed flow speaks
truth. With up-tempo tracks such as "Keep on Keepin
on" and "Just Be A Man About It" (comically describing
what woman really want to say) the appeal is obvious.
But, the sweet tones of "Getting Back To Me" and
simple poignancy of "Hard To Say I'm Happy" (lamenting
the day love slipped away) set her apart through her
versatility and depth.

Lyrics

Cold

Written By: elle

Verse 1:
You gave me every reason, a reason to believe in something real
I wanted to be with you with you everyday cause I like the way it feels
Now rain is falling everywhere your letting me get wet

Chorus:
And I'm standing in the cold im out there all alone, but somehow made me strong and I don't need you now so, grab yourself a coat you wont have me to hold anymore when your all alone in the cold, in the cold, in the cold

Verse 2:
Why, did you tell me nothing nothing became something when you lied
Then everything was different, different and so over in my mind
Now rain is falling everywhere, but I don't really care

Chorus:
And Im standing in the cold
I'm out here all alone and somehow made me strong and I don't need yo u now
So, grab yourself a coat you wont have me to hold anymore when your all alone in the cold

BRIDGE 1:
Now its too late baby
I don't need you now
See I'm changing everything
Cause you let me down

BRIDGE 2:
Oh, standing in the cold
I'm out here all alone
somehow made me strong and I don't need you now
So, grab yourself a coat you wont have me to hold anymore when your all alone in the cold, in the cold, in the cold

keep on keepin' on

Written By: Damon Sharpe

Verse 1:
Momma always warned me there would be nights like this I know,
but still I cant help wondering why I'm here again alone
I tell myself dont go there find the strength to walk away,
but damn I love this man so much
so every time I hesitate.

I pour myself a drink thinking I'd ease the pain (I would ease the pain) with every sip i took I'd wash it all away

Chorus:
I woke up on the floor
All my pride was gone
guess that I should have known that he would do me wrong
Lookin' up at the world,
but I'm not alone
And even though I'm badly broken
I'm going to keep on keepin' on

Verse 2:
Now my eyes are open so much better on my own
now isn't it ironic that he's calling on my phone
What makes you think that you could crawl back and try to bring me down
Don't have your weight upon my shoulders cause I'v reached a higher ground, oh oh...

Ever tell you how good it feels to live with self respect
There ain't no better reason why i deserve any less

Chorus x1

Bridge:
You got a keep on movin'
I'm never going to make that same mistake again, yeah
Keep on Keep on
And that's exactly what I'm doing
Cause I'm feeling strong and dependent and I'v learned my lesson for sure, yeah

Chorus x3
