In June 2017, after a cover of “Supermarket Flowers” went viral on the internet, Ellie was featured on the Irish TV show Weekend AMruen, where she said she performs once a week weather permitting, but on average about once a 2 weeks. At the same time, Ellie said that at first she had to change schools to another, closer to her father’s house, and then, due to bullying, switch to home schooling.
Of her performances on the street, Ellie said: “When people stop, I feel more confident. When there are no crowds, I get nervous, I think that I am not doing well. I like music very much. I want to continue.” Ellie’s adult and deep voice, with a distinctive hoarseness, attracted passers-by from the first chords, and the father recorded every street performance of his daughter, posting it on the YouTube channel.
