HI, my name is Ellen Hayes and I am a wife and mother, singer, song writer, musician and choir director. I have been tampering with a piano since the age of three. I have been singing since the age of twelve. I have been working with the choirs at my church and other churches for the past 20+ years. I have sang with various groups starting from high school on. Finally I am preparing for the world to hear what God has given me. My desire is to be an inspiration to those that need inspiring and a light to anyone that is searching. I Hope to lead someone that may be lost to Christ.
I am currently in the studio working on completing my Album. Look for videos and more music soon!
