About
Standing 5'10' tall, and just a little over 110lbs, +100+5, 10, 15, 20....well, never mind……this aint no hide and seek experience, but this gorgeous, talented, voluptious, engaging, confident woman of God, with incredible stage presence, deep, raspy vocals,a big,fat personality and a command of the English alphabet like none other, will provide an invigorating and captivating experience at your next event!

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!

What an experience it was to witness the creative skills of Christina. Through our contact, she was as excited as we were as the date got closer. She arrived on time and and did not disappoint. We would be delighted to have her again and we will definitely recommend her to others.

I have been very fortunate to provide my service to a number of clients over the years, but I must say this was my favorite! I was so impressed with the order of events, the food, the decor and the entertainment was top notch! Mr. V and his wife made me (and I'm sure all of their guest) feel warm and welcomed. The whole atmosphere was vibrant, fun and again, very welcoming. In my opinion, this was the party of the summer and will definitely go down as one of the best events I attended in a long time... if not the best. Kudos for a job well done!

I love to see people having a good time and enjoying each others company and that’s exactly what I experienced a Ms. Kaye’s 40th birthday party. These folks know how to party and engage their guest all at the same time. They were a little freaky but hey……. no freak no fun…lol. And the DJ…..yaaaaas honey….”He did that!” ? Thank you Ms. Kaye for allowing me to be a part of your milestone celebration. You have a beautiful, energetic and fun-loving family. And by the way....40 looks good on you! All the best!

Ella the Spella the Phenomenal Storytella"’s Response:

I was initially disturbed by this clients ratings, however; I contacted him to express my concerns regarding his dissatisfaction. His attitude was negative and condescending and he had absolutely NOTHING positive to say! I suppose establishing an immediate rapport with the birthday honoree and guest and hearing non-stop laugher throughout the course of the evening is unacceptable? I may not be the best Comedienne in the world but I WILL NOT have my name or reputation tarnished! Mr. Cudrup is a bit disconnected from the world of comedy/laughter and should consider a "101 in laugh therapy!" I had an absolute blast!
