She’s dominating the charts with her single “Royals,” and Lorde is wowing us again with her brand new single “Team.” At only 16-years-old, Lorde couldn’t be impressing us more. We wanted to learn as much as we could about this singer from overseas!
Full name: Ella Maria Lani Yelich-O'Connor
Birthday: November 7, 1996 (16 years old)
Where was she born? Devonport, North Shore, Auckland, New Zealand
Before she was Lorde: Ella was found at an early age. She was 12-years-old when she was picked by a talent agent while performing in a video for her school, Belmont Intermediate. At 13 she was signed to Universal, and just a year later, she started working with her songwriters. Lorde was always surrounded by art, as her mother, Sonja Yelich, was a prize-winning New Zealand poet.
Three Lorde facts:
- She’ll be performing the song “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” for ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ soundtrack.
- She turned down the opportunity to tour with Katy Perry.
- Lorde has three brothers and sisters.
We are absolutely obsessed with Lorde - make sure you listen for her single “Royals” on Fanlala Radio. And we cannot wait to see what else she has in store for the future!
