Chen Chia-Hwa (Traditional Chinese: 陳嘉樺; Pinyin: Chén Jiāhuà, born 18 June 1981 in Pingtung County), more commonly credited as Ella, is the oldest member of the Taiwanese girl group S.H.E.

Career

Ella Chen finished high school but did not attend university due to her love and passion for singing. On August 8, 2000, HIM International Music held a ‘Universal 2000 Talent and Beauty Girl Contest’ in search of new artists to sign under their label. When she travelled with her brother to Taipei for a holiday, Ella Chen discovered that her older sister registered her for a singing competition. Intimidated by the long line of contestants and worried of facing ridicule for her tomboy personality, Chen almost gave up before the first round. Her older sister, however, convinced her to stay. Chen’s deep voice caught the label’s attention, and helped propel her through to the final round. Her voice, although in the alto range, is noted for its strong and beautiful nature.

During her career with S.H.E, Ella has been the most accident-prone member. On July 29, she was sent to the hospital after jumping from the third storey of a building and shattering her hip.
