About Ella Hooper

Ella Hooper is an award-winning entertainer with a quality that sets her apart from others – authenticity. On her career path, from a humble country upbringing through to award-winning ‘pop-star’ and household name, Ella has walked the talk.

Having spent more than 20 years in the spotlight with her music talent (Killing Heidi), Ella is now building on her credits as radio host, TV presenter, women’s rights advocate, teacher, mentor, public speaker, content creator and respected pop culture vulture.

Ella is a people-person whose charm, intelligence and wit make her an excellent communicator. She’s adaptable and understands people – particularly young women trying to make their way in the world.

In April 2021, Ella was announced as host of the new music podcast Front & Centre, exclusive to the LiSTNR app, where she interviews the biggest names in music and shares their stories. She can also be heard on Triple M 90’s digital station as a workday host, playing all her favourite tracks from that decade.

Ella was also able to showcase her amazing vocal ability and sense of fun in 2021 as a contestant on The Masked Singer. Her character “Baby” lasted until the final week of the series and was a much loved contender, as Ella brought her vibrance and versatility as a performer to the stage.

Her quick wit and music knowledge shine on ABC’s Spicks and Specks reunion series where her infectious laugh, combined with her pop culture knowledge, make her a crowd favourite. As a return panellist on Ten’s The Project she offers a unique take on issues of the day. In 2019 Ella stepped out of her comfort zone (and her clothes) to take part in the top rating Seven Network All New Monty: Ladies Night to raise awareness of women’s health issues.

Ella is also an accomplished MC and keynote speaker on themes ranging from ‘unlikely success’ through to youth self-esteem or the big picture ‘doing things differently.’ Her personal experiences reinforce the motto ‘you dream, you believe, you create, you succeed’.

Naturally, Ella is a passionate advocate for women’s issues and in 2016 was honoured to join the board of the Victorian Women’s Trust – a highly respected feminist fundraising and research organization. Also in 2016, Ella was drafted to the inaugural Victorian Governments’ Creative State Task Force alongside other creative industry leaders to act as a conduit between the music industry and government/corporate sectors.

Ella has always been passionate about giving back and mentors many young female performers – a position APRA formalised by assigning young female artists to help guide, give feedback and advice to, fostering connections both with and for them.

Ella Hooper is a rare breed – a multi-faceted entertainer with the unique ability to cross genres and topics.
