Ella the Spella the Phenomenal Storytella was very entertaining. We enjoyed her at my mom's birthday celebration. I would recommend her for all occasions.
As a former "Class Clown from the 1900's" Christina "Ellavation" Wilson aka "Ella the Spella the Phenomenal Storytella" realized her ability to entertain, through quick wit and a creative thought process. Whether standing in the grocery store, retail or even the unemployment line, yes, she's been in all of them at some point of her journey, nonetheless; she has always used her southern mannerism, unique sense of humor and her gift of spelling to connect with audiences and complete strangers alike.
You might find her at the mall, bellowing an off the cuff jingle for a free Cinnabunn or strolling the aisle at Costco after Sunday services, accumulating enough mini samples to make up a meal. She has been known for putting a "trick or treat" on her audiences; usually sharing the tricks with her audiences while consuming all the treats for herself! Those clever techniques not only gained her a plethora of free samples and a few giggles from innocent bystanders, but she also acquired a few unintended inches around the waistline as well.
Her performances will engage your guest from beginning to end and will leave you with the ultimate "hooked on phonics experience." Yes, indeedie sweetie... "Ella the Spella the Phenomenal Storytella"literally spells out complete stories, all while having heart to heart conversation throughout her act. That said, you'll need to pay, c-l-o-s-e…a-t-t-e-n-t-i-o-n, so you're able to capture what's being "s-p-e-l-l-e-d, because, its kinda like the Washington Post, if you miss it, well, you just miss it! :)
Christina has no problem connecting with complete strangers and audiences alike. She is committed and passionate about leaving her audiences with the utmost memorable experience and blushes upon exit when someone "spells out" their favorite comedic moment after a show.
She aspires to host a talk show in the near future called Christina's Cookin' up Comedy (3-C Entertainment) where she'll entice her guest with some of her healthy, creative cuisine, as she humors them and allows them to partake in "Hot to Heart" conversation; a meaningful dialogue dealing with life, love and relationships.
Many have asked how she derived at the stage name Ellavation? And she recalls: "It was a week night back
in the late 1900's and two of my spiritual brothers, Eric Vincent and Marcos Council stopped by. They were aspiring Christian Rap Artist at the time and I was making my way onto the comedy scene. I told them I needed a stage name and we we were all trying to come up with something that would be "unique and catchy."I wanted a name that people could "feel" when they hear\d it and I thought, "The Elevvator" then it was the Exaggerator….why, because I was a great storyteller, and who doesn't like to hear a good, embellished, larger than life, story? They both laughed hysterically and said….ahhhh, no maam... with an exclamation p-o-i-n-t! Then, one of them said, how about "Ellavation and something clicked. It was from that moment, the name Ellavation was birthed! It was perfect! "Ella-vate" means: to promote to upgrade, to advance, to hoist, to lift up, to motivate, to inspire to esteem. That name spoke volumes to who I am and what my mission and ministry is about."
Christina said "when I was a little girl I would hear my grandmother gossiping and every once in a while, she would spell a person's name or spell a word that she didn't think the kids were smart enough to comprehend.....but no maam, not me. I was too inquisitive and I liked books back then and I would get a piece of paper and write that word down and sound it out until I figured out what Inell B. Wilson was talking about! Sure did! She also did this during Christmastime as well. I remember it like it were yesterday. When I was about seven or eight years old or so, Grandma was having a conversation with one of my aunties. She told my auntie to hide the c-a-n-d-y, so the children would see it….I went back around that corner saying ken-di, candi, kan-dee and finally, I got it! So the next morning I asked Grandma, where was all the C-a-n-d-y that aunt so and so hid the previous night? The look on her face….-p-r-i-c-e-l-e-s-s-! She said, "gal, you better gone somewhere and sit your lil fresh self down" and from that experience, I've been spelling my buns off every since!
The bible says, a cheerful heart is good medicine... the best part is, there's no prescription or deductible required, however; there may sometimes be a small "co-pay required, but it will pay-off in the long run!
