Ella Brooks

Ella Brooks (born in Chicago, Illinois) was a female R&B singer from the 80's. Not much information is given about her, but she was signed to the QMI Music record label.

In 1987, she released the single, "It's Easy When You're on Fire" which peaked at #89 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart in July of 1987, staying on the chart for only 5 weeks.

The song was featured in the Marvin Hagler\Sugar Ray Leonard "Superfight" boxing video. After that, it appears as if Ella Brooks has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from Ella since.

She first showed up in the funk/boogie band Wind Song who had one
obscure private LP release in 1982. Hard to find, but well worth it!
