Published 8:45am Tuesday, December 4, 2012

Olivia Ellis of Hartselle was named to POPulus, an American band comprised of students in Troy University’s Music Industry Program.

Artists of diverse and eclectic styles blend together in a unique musical environment honoring all genres of American popular music. The term POPulus was created by combining the musical genre “POP” with “ulus,” a Mediterranean languages term for “nation” or “people.” With their dynamic vibe and distinctive name, their music appeals across genres, generations and geographic borders.

Ellis has sung solos at her church and even started singing in Alabama’s Country/Gospel Music Association (ACGMA) competition throughout middle school and early high school through which she won the Horizon Award and the Most Promising Vocalist Award. She is currently in the music industry program at Troy University.
