Welcome to my website. My name is Ellie Maxwell and this is where you can follow my music and my life.
I was born in South Africa, then moved to Canada when I was eight months old. And as soon as I could talk, I started to sing songs and dance all around the house. That was when my parents saw that maybe I had something special. So in October 2017, I started to taking singing with my music coach, Mr. Alex Baran. He has helped me become a better singer.
I'm the youngest of the five children in my family. At the moment I am 12 years old and my birthday is on February 14 (Valentine's day).
