Detroit is known for churning out great soul and R&B singers. Known as the home of Motown, it’s also the 
home of a great Gospel talent. One of those shining sacred artists in the Motor City is Gospel Recording Artist 
Ellen Hayes. A flat-footed singer that can belt out notes that shake the soul, Hayes has been inspiring 
believers for decades. The gifted alto epitomizes church with her mastery of traditional Gospel music and 
contemporary Gospel music. The multi-talented organist, pianist, vocalist, songwriter, choir director and 
four-time Rhythm of Gospel Nominee is getting ready to shake up the world of Gospel with a long-awaited 
release, We Owe It All To You.

Originally hailing from Ecorse, Michigan, Ellen was raised in Detroit, Michigan, after her father, Pastor 
Charles J Edison, was called to start a church there. He moved his family, which included his wife and ten 
children, into a home on the upper floors of a converted bar, and that’s where Ellen’s father began his 
ministry work. Deeply involved in the inner workings of the church, she was very active. Ellen is grateful for 
the lessons she learned growing up in the church and how it shaped her as a Christian. “When I was growing 
up, I couldn’t see the value of it,” Ellen explains. “But when I got married and started having children, 
experiencing life itself, there were so many times that I realized that I needed the lessons I learned in church. 
And I came to see how important a relationship with the Lord was.” 

Recording is nothing new for Ellen. She recorded her first song in her early 20s. It began when her brother, 
Dr. Raymond Edison, wanted to form a Gospel group; Ellen quickly became a member. True Inspiration, the 
new group, booked her brother’s studio, recorded a number of tracks and released two albums. They gained 
a following and were known for delivering powerful performances. Ellen remained a member of True 
Inspiration for 20 years before launching her solo career. Step Into Your Blessing was her debut CD release. 
Dropped in 2012, the project featured tracks written by Ellen and producer Michael Mindingall.

The all female group consisted of Ellen and her three daughters, LaToya Bellafant, Cynthia Gross and Carmen Hayes, 
and as their name suggests, they were recognized for delivering impeccable harmonies and a unforgettable 
blend that can only be found in families. The ministry was an extension of the musical lineage that started 
with her parents, continued with her brother and transferred to her children. A wife of almost 40 years, the 
mother of eight and the grandmother of 20, Ellen Hayes is just getting started. Currently, she is the musician 
at her home church, the Word of Truth Church in Detroit, Michigan, pastored by Rufus Hayes, the same 
church her father established decades earlier.
