X Factor singer Ella Henderson celebrated signing a life-changing record deal with Sony at an intimate gig in Chislehurst.

The 16-year-old has become the first performer from this year’s series to secure a record deal, beating Jahmene Douglas and boy band Union J to it.

And she took to The Lounge in Chislehurst on Sunday to celebrate the good news and perform for 300 people.

James London, one of the bar’s owners, said: “We were so privileged to have Ella perform at our venue.

“When news spread that we were hosting a night with Ella, tickets sold out in just two hours.

“She was buzzing with her news about Sony, and spent hours with the guests signing autographs and taking pictures.”

The soon-to-be superstar tweeted: “Great crowd tonight! X thank u everyone at @TheLoungeBR7 x”

Ella left X Factor in a shock twist back in week seven, when the judges elected to keep eventual winner James Arthur in the contest instead of her.

Re-tweeting dozens of messages of support from her fans, she wrote: "Thank u for your kind messages! X It's all of you who help to inspire my music!! I cannot wait for 2013"
